BONAMPAK AND YAXCHILAN MAYAN RUINS - Private Tour from Palenque

Available from Thursday

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.

Customs of indigenous peoples of Chiapas

I grew up with the traditions and legends of indigenous and mestizo peoples of Chiapas, where I come from and learned them from my grandparents, parents and later, during my university career, I delved into several historical and social aspects. I also lived a historical moment in my city, witnessing the armed revolution of the EZLN (Zapatistas). My passion for the history and traditions of San Cristobal and Chiapas continues to be more and more alive and I enjoy sharing it with the visitors of Chiapas, which I have been receiving very positive comments for 10 years.
