This place is magical. Walking in the middle of lush greenery and seeing these ruins around you is absolutely amazing. You find yourself going back to history. Waterfalls, trees and plants just surround you and it is breathtaking. Coming back with the kids... this place...More

This a remarkable site that shouldn't be missed. It can get crowded when tour busses arrive, so go early. Tasty street food is available just outside the entrance. Sundays can bring extra crowds.

One of the most beautiful ruin settings I have ever seen. Bring comfortable shoes and cover for the sun. Bringing water for the visit is highly recommended. There are two fees that need to be paid.

One of the most beautiful archaeological sites in Mexico. Even if you’re not into history or archaeology the place is very enjoyable and offers beautiful views of the rainforest surrounded pyramids. Lots of souvenirs to buy if you’re into it and restaurants and shops outside....More

Blistering hot and suffocating humidity, but not enough to over-shadow the archaeological wonder that surrounded us. I've been to the pyramids in Egypt and the Egyptians had nothing on the Mayans. My interest to learn more about this amazing culture was stimulated.

The ruins are fascinating especially with a good local guide in a small group. We learned so much. The only thing that spoils it is idiots with selfie sticks climbing on things they should not and getting in the way. The setting against the verdant...More

The Palenque resemble Angkor Wat both in size (although a little less can be seen) and in the jungle atmosphere (although both ruins have, of course, a unique character) - if they fit on your travel itinery, an absolute must! They are easy to access,...More
