The country's most enchanting ruin, Palenque is an eight square mile site, still partially covered in vegetation and hidden in the rainforest, which stretches south towards the Guatemalan border. Defined as one of the most important cities of the storied Maya, Palenque offers a glimpse into the ancient worlds of times past.
