Palenque is a Myan city that was inhabited from around 100 BC until AD 900 when it was abandoned.  As it is in the area of Mexico that receives the greatest rainfall, the jungle quickly overtook the site and it remained lost in time until 1947 when Myan hunter’s tales of a “Jungle Palace” were investigated. Since then the site has been subject to almost constant exploration and to date several hundred buildings have been discovered on the main site and in the immediate jungle area.
Palenque is awe-inspiring and is worth a trip to Mexico on it’s own. It is almost a Spiritual experience to walk in the footsteps of these ancients. People in the RV Park here have been back three times and say they still have not seen everything. Here are a few of the three hundred some photos I took there.
