by many who declare it to be the most
beautiful Mayan ruin, Palenque sits proudly
in Palenque National Park in the state of
Chiapas. The region around Palenque has the
highest average rainfall in Mexico, watering
a chokingly dense rainforest. The site
covers 15 square miles. Set against a hill,
the city was built in such a way that it
could be seen for days as one ventured
through the rain forest from the coast.
There are many other Mayan ruins to see in
the Southern Mexico region. Many of the
Mayan sites are located near the Yucatan
Peninsula, spilling over to the lowland
rainforests of Mexico to the east and Belize
in the west & some of Guatemala.
This Map is an approximate Southern Mexico
Located in Middle America, bordering the
Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico &
Caribbean Sea. Between US border and
Guatemala & Belize.
