The Palenque ruins are beautiful but they appear small in comparision to some of the other ruins like Mexico City and Tikal but that would be an unfair comparision because apparently 95% of the ruins are still buried in the jungle with not enough money to expand the site. They're still impressive though and on with the tour

The areas which are cleared are well cared for but it is a constant battle to keep the jungle back

maintenaince is a non stop effort

your not allowed to climb on a lot of the ruins as on other sites

The carvings on the exterior were quite ornate but time has taken its toll

have to go for a second will be right back
