El Palacio, Palenque

Surrounded by jungle, Palenque is a hot and humid place, the town itself doesn't have any real attractions, but is a good base for various excursions in the state of Chiapas and to go to Guatemala (Tikal for example).

Just a few miles away are the ruins of the ancient Maya city of Palenque. They are well worth a visit or two. If you go in the early morning, the site is even more impressive than during the rest of the day, because mist is surrounding the temples and ruins.

Other attractions close to Palenque are the colourful cascades of Agua Azul, the crystal clear river at Agua Clara and the Misol-Ha waterfall.
