Customer Travel Tip: The jungle tour at the ruins is mostly a walk along a well-marked trail. You could probably do this solo without losing much. My guide spoke only Spanish, so I didn't understand half of what he said anyway....

Liked: Palenque is a nice enough town. I mostly visited for the ruins.

Disliked: Nothing.
