In the heart of the Maya’s Civilization, Palenque represents just 5% of this ruins. The rest of the city of Palenque is under the jungle. The gates close at 5pm, so I recommend to arrive early in the day to see and appreciate the beauty of this place. Don’t forget to help the local people here in Palenque. They don’t receive salaries from the government, thus your cooperation is appreciated. By just buying their merchandise, you will help and support their families.
