Bonampak Tours

Bonampak
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 AND YAXCHILAN MAYAN RUINS - Private Tour from Palenque

The Mayan ruins at Bonampak are a beautiful site with a very unique and interesting feel, not fully excavated, so much still covered by rainforest. One of the most amazing finds at Bonampak are the three rooms of murals, depicting important ceremonial and political events, which are some of the best preserved examples of the Maya painted art. These exquisite murals changed the long held notion that the Maya only sacrificed warriors in the ball games and that they were for the most part a peaceful people. The murals tell a much bloodier story.The Yaxchilán archaeological site can be reached only by an hour long incredible boat ride down the mighty Usumacinta river through one of the last great North American rainforests. Riding in a long boat, you'll be exactly between the shores of Guatemala and Mexico, and If you keep on the lookout you will see many of the rainforest wild inhabitants, like monkeys, toucans and eagles, so as crocodiles in the river water.
