Our last stop in the “Tour de ruins” is Palenque in Chiapas. Located in the middle of the jungle, the site is very different from both Monte Alb├ín and Teotihuacan.

Besides visiting the park there really isn’t very much to do in Palenque. The only other thing I would recommend for a visit is to make sure to get a reservation at Bajlum. The restaurant serves a sort of modernized Mayan food with all local ingredients either gathered or hunted from the nearby jungle. We arrived just before they opened for the day after browsing tripadvisor to find a good place to eat and the owner made an amazing experience
