Palenque

4
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. Palenque is in Chiapas. Customize your holiday with our Mexico holiday site to create an adventure that suits you.
