Bonampak Tours

With its remote location, hidden away in the Lacandon Jungle, it’s not surprising that Bonampak was only discovered by explorers in 1946. Encompassing a mere 2.4 square kilometers, the ancient Mayan settlement pales in comparison to the sprawling ruins of nearby Yaxchilán, but despite its diminutive status, Bonampak still stands out.

The undeniable highlight of Bonampak is its remarkably preserved murals, which rank among the most important of all Mayan artworks, dating back to 800 AD. The series of colorful frescos inside the Templo de las Pinturas are the most famous, featuring detailed depictions of court rituals, ceremonies and human sacrifice previously unseen by archeologists.

Practical Info

Bonampak Archaeological Park is located in the Chiapas rainforest, about 30 kilometers south of Yaxchilan, and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the park is 45 pesos, while a further 25 peso fee is payable to enter the Ejido. Due to its remote location, Bonampak is best visited as part of a guided tour.
