Palenque

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Southern Mexico  /  Chiapas  /  Palenque
(3.8/5 based on 5,000+ reviews for 9 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, historic sites
Palenque remains best known for the nearby ruins of an ancient Mayan city, which probably flourished around the 7th century CE. The World Heritage-listed remnants of this settlement seem little changed by the passage of time and represent one of Mexico's finest examples of Mayan architecture. Palenque itself sits a short drive east of the famed ruins, offering limited tourist appeal and serving as a jumping-off point for exploring the surrounding region. Holidays in Palenque appeal to history buffs and nature lovers interested in discovering a wild jungle landscape ideal for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and bird-watching.
