Private Visit to Palenque
Enjoy a half-day tour of the beautiful Palenque ruins. Walk amongst toucans and howler monkeys to discover one of Mexico's most pristine cultural sites and gawp at the extravagance of the ancient Mayan temples that still stand today.
The site, surrounded by rainforest, is made up of some 500 buildings spread over 15 sq km, of which only a few have been excavated. We will explore the magnificent ruins, including the Temple of the Inscriptions – the tallest and stateliest of Palenque’s buildings; the Temple of the Sun crowned with a prominent roof comb; The Palace – with its maze of corridors and rooms, and many other beautiful buildings.
The ruins and surrounding forests form a national park, the Parque Nacional Palenque, for which you must pay a separate M$27 admission fee at Km 4.5 on the road to the ruins.
