The ruins are beautiful however, the experience getting there is a rip off. 400 pesos for a taxi to get us from our car to the entrance of the site (aprox 10 min and on a road that we could have driven on), plus a...More

Of all the Mayan ruins, this one was one of the harder places to reach. It's a long ride down a VERY bumpy road. But it's worth it all at the end, as there are several stunning buildings, a famous stele, and the best preserved...More

Be prepared to pay! Some folks from MX City warned us that the locals were charging around 400 pesos to visit Bonampak. It works like this: they’ll flag you over at the intersection where you turn to drive to Bonampak from wherever you’re staying or...More

The site, set deep in the jungle, is best known for its murals and lintel paintings, among the best preserved in the Mayan world. Located in three small rooms that comprise the Temple of the Murals, access is limited to three people at a time....More

There are several places explored in Mexico, this is one of the most beautiful sites because of the location, you can also enjoy the vegetation, all the tropical animals. Have a guided visit and you can learn all this interesting history!

This is a beautiful arqueological site where you can emerge in the history of the Mayan civilization and how they work how they feed and how they work.

We had a really bad feeling about Bonampak, Yaxchilan and the Lacanjon region. We drove all the way there from Palenque to discover the culture and the ruins but we just felt like they were after our money there. After 3 hours drive from Palenque,...More

The site is very small and the only reason to go actually are the murals. But these murals are indeed spectacular if partly in a bad condition so that some parts are hard to recognise. Make sure you have information at hand, provided by a...More

If you take a tour to Yaxchilan/Bonampak from Palenque they arrive to Bonampak pretty late in the day as reaching Yaxchilan takes most of the day. So run to the Templo de las Pinturas, the site's main attraction, as the attendant locks it up for...More
