26 Beautiful Photos of Palenque’s Maya Pyramids in Mexico

 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.

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

I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!

  1. Wow! I would love to visit there! I love the pictures at the water too! My favorite photo being the closeup of Sawyer!
    love, amanda

  2. I agree with Amanda, WOW!!! That looks like an awesome place to visit. It looks like the kiddos are having a great time swimming. I also agree again with Amanda, my favorite picture is of Sawyer. He is to stinking cute. He looks like he’s up to trouble :) Love you all

  3. 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! ;)

  4. 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?

    1. 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!
