All reviews mayan ruins official guide surrounding jungle guided tour wander around indiana jones national park great site bring water early in the morning archaeological site main entrance magical place take your time local guide mexico city worth the trip
We made 2 payments: 34 and 70 pesos per person.
A lot os souvenirs shops outside and inside the ruins.
Easy to arrive with "colectivo" (small bus) paying 20 pesos per person to go and another 20 to go back to palenque center.
These jungle set ruins are superb. They don’t have as many tourists as Chichen Itza, don’t have 100s of vendors hassling you and you can walk on the ruins. The main pyramid provides great views of the site and the jungle beyond. Great insight on...More
One of the best experience of my life... we walk trough all this ruins... only the 10% is been discover yet but they're stunning. The all Chiapas is a gorgeous region to visit. Agua azul and San Cristobal also worth a stop.
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.
Palenque is a journey into the history and mysticism of the Mayan Culture. It's one of the top destinations of Chiapas region. We spent a whole day exploring the site which spreads over 15 sq km, but it was not enough, so we went back...More
We had about a half a day here with a guide from Mextrotter called Kevin. We were with him for a week but this was one of the highlights - he is an archaeologist and had worked on some of the ruins here so his...More
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

Please see my larger review under "Palenque National Archeological park" I highly recommend the tour guides from the booth on the LEFT(!!!), which is the one run by local indigenous. The booths are both to the right of the entrance. If you speak Spanish, ask for Delfino, who was just excellent. They also have guides who speak English. On the way to one of the more remote ruins, we sampled two fruits I had never seen before - his knowledge of both the ruins and the jungle was profound.

You may try reaching out to: Mayatur in Palenque. You'll find them with a simple search, TA doesn't allow the link. They were a very helpful and affordable tour company in the town of Palenque. Took a couple days to hear back sometimes, but very worth it for us and nearly half the cost of pre-booking elsewhere. If they don't offer service from where you are, they very well could know someone. If that leads to nothing, I'd try your hotel. It's such a common thing to book the tours from town to town, etc in the area I am certain they will have suggestions. Good luck, it'll be wonderful!
