hidden in the rain forest of Chiapas this is one of the largest of sites of pre Colombian ruins. Easy access from San Cristobal de Las Casas or the airport at Tuxtla Gutierrez. International travelers please be advised that More than 100 passengers from a dozen nations were detained without cause or explanation in deplorable prison cells in the Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City. Passengers were denied entry without explanation by immigration officers who refused to identify themselves or allow access to the embassies

This was one of the most amazing experiences in Mexico. Mayan ruins in Palenque were fantastic. Take a guide (quite expensive but worth), prepare some 2hours at least, add time for buying regional souvenirs available also on the way through ruins, also go into the jungle to see not renovated ruins, huge trees and animals if your are lucky.

I visited the archeological zone on January 2nd, 2021. The site is beautiful and impressive. I would like to explain what you have to do to visit during Covid. The site is open from 10 am till the afternoon, yet because of the pandemics it only allows 600 visitors per day: 300 are let in at 10 am, other 300 at 11:30 am. We didnt know it and so we arrived at 9:50 am. The first 300 visitors were already let in, so we had to wait in line for 1,5 hour to be let in. Some people who were behind us didnt make it in the 600, so they were sent home and told to come back the day after. So, my first tip: ARRIVE EARLY, possibly around 9:15-9:30 am to make it in the first batch. After we made it into the "lucky" 600 we were immensely helped to cut the lines and the red tape by a local guide, Fidel Cruz, who got us right away into the park. Fidel is very knowledgeable, speaks english and italian and gave us some very interesting information on the whole site as well as the Maya people. As I said the site is impressive, bc of Covid you cant climb the pyramids and the Queen chamber is closed. All the rest is really beautiful. If I were to do it again I would call Fidel the night before, get to the site at 9:00 am and enjoy the tour. The story of King Pakal and the local people is impressive. I leave here Fidel's number in case somebody needs him +52 916 1195933. Whether you do it with Fidel, with another guide or on your own, this site is impressive and leaves you with many questions and mysteries: what happened to the Mayas, how could they have such an advanced technology many years ago?

Enjoyed the visit to this Mayan site which was somewhat different from Chichen Itza. There's more opportunities to climb up the ruins here. Also saw some howler monkeys up in the trees. Best to visit early in the morning to avoid the crowd and the heat.

These ruins are stunning ! My wife and I have visited chichen itza and this ruin was way better with the lush jungle surrounding the entire site. Covid restrictions were on when we visited so we did not get to climb anything or see the view points. But we still enjoyed the site.
