"Palenque - The Most Awesome Mayan City!" Top 5 Page for this destination Palenque by shdw100

Palenque Travel Guide: 218 reviews and 735 photos

Palenque is probably the most facinating Mayan city that I have ever been too. It is the creme de la creme of archeological sites in Mexico. Situated in the tropical jungles of Chiapas, the city almost takes on a life of it's own again with the mists rising from the morning heat. The green backdrop paints an almost perfect picture of how you would picture a typical Mayan ruin. There was so much to see and do that this place will keep you occupied for a whole day!

    Impressive place ! Dave, thanks for sharing. I am looking forward to go here myself in a couple of weeks. Eleven years ago I visited Chitzen Itza and Uxmal, but didn´t make it to Palenque.

    I was just there a week ago, took some 70 pictures. From my new digital camera. I was in UXMAL a couple of years ago. Impressive as well. Art work in Chiapas is incredible.
