During my trip through Mexico, I visited the sites of many major ruins from Mexico City to Tulum on the Maya Riviera.
Myself, along with the whole G Adventures group, agreed that Palenque was our favorite, beating out the famed Chichen Itza.
Why did Palenque strike a chord with us? I believe it was the setting.
The setting helps give it a mystical feel, which is something it shares in common with Tikal, another great ruined city, located in Guatemala.
The Pre-Hispanic City and National Park of Palenque became a World Heritage Site in 1987.
