26 Beautiful Photos of Palenque, The Maya Pyramids in Mexico

0
 The Maya site of Palenque is beautiful! If you ever find yourself in the Southern part of Mexico near Belize you really need to take the family to Palenque. Trust me it will be worth it! These are the first pyramids we saw on our trip to Belize and they have a special place in our memory.
26 Beautiful Photos of Palenque, The Maya Pyramids in Mexico

Three Quick Reasons to Visit Palenque

The Maya site of Palenque is beautiful!

  • We got lots of healthy exercise climbing up and down the pyramids.
  • It was a fun historical field trip about Maya culture for the kids and the adults.
  • After our workout, we played in waterfalls inside the park that cooled us off from our adventurous hike.

We had a wonderful day traveling back in time a couple thousand years!

Family Tips for Visiting Maya Pyramids

  • If you bring the kids be sure to pack water! It’s hot and they will need the hydration. So will you!
  • Buy a baby carrier for your little ones. We hauled Tristan up and down the pyramids in his carrier. Our 11-month-old didn’t miss a thing!

Enjoy our first Maya adventure in photos. Hopefully one day you will be able to visit this beautiful park too! Signing off, Tina

    What an AMAZING homeschool experience! I’ve homeschooled my 3 three kids exclusively for 15 years now, but I’ve never had the opportunity to make history come alive like THAT before. That’s really cool. Palenque is an amazing site – though I’ve never been myself, I studied it extensively in college (I majored in anthropology/archaeology). Awesosme! ;)

    I am moving to PALENQUE for three months this fall. While I have visited it many times and stayed at lovely hotels this time will have me living on the economy. Any advice about how one goes about looking for a place to stay there while I am living in New Mexico?

      Diana you mean “Mexico” right and not “New Mexico”? Just making sure :-) I think if I would Google “short term rentals Palenque”. A site we have used a number of times for home rentals is Vivanuncios. There is also AirBnb and VRBO. I like all of these sites :-) Hope this helps!

    I loved seeing the Mayan Pyramids on our honeymoon, and even though it was 15 years ago they still are fresh in my mind. The kids looked like they had a great time.

      We all did and yes, I don’t think I will ever forget the experience either! If anyone has the chance to visit an ancient site like Palenque I recommend it!
