Palenque was a Mayan city state that flourished in the 7th century. The ruins date from about 226 BC to 799 AD.

Souvenirs were sold everywhere, and they were distracting. We found ourselves looking down, instead of looking up at the ruins.

Afterwards, we went to a nearby waterfall for a swim. Amazing!
