From San Cristobal I travelled to PAlenque to see more Mayan ruins. I had a really good day visiting the ruins and 2 waterfalls in the area. The ruins were really impressive, although not as big as the site at Tikal, I found it much more interesting. The buildings were more ornately decorated with glyphs that have been translated and thought to tell the history and important events of the site. There was also a really good museum containing the very impressive sarcophagus of the most important ruler of the area and many other artefacts that have been discovered. In the afternoon we visted the waterfall at Misol-ha and aguas azul, which was a really nice place for a walk and a swim.
There wasn’t much to see in Palenque town itself, it only exists as a base for visitng the ruins but in the evenings there was good live music in the main square.
