"Modest ruins with impressive colored murals" Bonampak by DSwede

Bonampak Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 50 photos

Having visited many other Mayan ruins, the exterior of the ruins of Bonampak are modest. But it should be noted that the stele in the Grand Plaza and the colored murals inside the ruins are some of the best surviving examples.

They are constantly trying to preserve and maintain the structures and murals, so don't be surprised if one or more of the chambers is closed to visitors.

Feel free to visit my Mexico page for more on my time and visits to other places within Mexico.

I've placed more photos in my Mexico Gallery, so feel free to visit. If you enjoy the pictures, please leave a comment.
