Unsurprisingly, it can get very hot in Mexico – the beautiful sunshine competing with the even more heated chilli dishes is sure to fire you up! If you’re not parascending like our friends in the picture above you can visit some compelling cultural sites such as the Palenque (the Spanish word for “fortification”).
Palenque Mayan ruins
When you visit the Palenque Mayan ruins, you will soon realised they are awash with interesting facts, and once you start looking further into its background, you will see why so many people travel from all four corners of the globe to visit and explore these ancient Mayan ruins.
Palenque tours will expose visitors to a myriad of temples and pyramids, in addition to the enormous rainforest, just east of the border between Mexico & Guatemala. Within these temples are incredible examples of history and Mayan art. There are also hand-carved artworks in the buildings all along a vast majority of the paths.
As well as visiting the Palenque, don’t forget to explore these top 5 sites too:
Residing in the Jungles of Quintana Roo, Chacchoben is one of the lesser-known of Mexico’s Mayan ruins. Chacchoben is not as popular with visitors as the more accessible ruins, due to its jungle location. It features grand pyramids built by the Mayans from around 200BC although much of the site has yet to be revealed by further excavation.
This Mayan civilisation flourished from around 250AD to roughly 900AD. As a sophisticated race of people, they created a written language and left behind many incredible works of art.
The construction of the El Tajin started somewhere near 600 AD and peaked at nearly 1200 AD. Located to the north of Veracruz, this city features about 150 buildings though the majority of them remain unexcavated. The city is thought to have been an administrative centre and features multiple palaces along with ball courts and temples. El Tajin is of interest because many of the structures there are unique and completely new to archaeologists.
This name means City of the Gods, and it’s a collective of around 600 pyramids, the largest being the Pyramid of the Sun.
The very existence of this city is a true testament to the engineering capabilities of the Mayan people who built ingenious reservoirs to provide water to it during the dry parts of the year. The name Uxmal translates to “thrice built” and was established near or around 600AD. The Mayan buildings at this site are among the most beautiful of any ruins and have been awarded a UNESCO World Heritage site status.
