You should take some time and discover also the ruins in the jungle around the area. Very nice. For me until now the most beautiful ruins in Mexico so far.

These ruins truely speak to the imagination. Only 5% uncovered. Very beautiful builings that are nicely restorated. The usage of plaster to cover the walls instead of cut stones was very unique. The palace, most tempels and the tombe are stil open for visitors.

I went to Palenque in a day trip from Villahermosa, Tabasco. It's aprox a 150 km drive but it can take almost 2hrs 30min to get there. The last 30km from Catazaja to Palenque is a road under construction and it took us 30min to...More
