    Palenque is a beautiful Mayan site, with unique features. However, if you have some Mayan history knowledge, the guide adds little. We felt rushed through the site and the guide left us at one point, probably to go get her next victims, giving us directions back to our pickup. The museum was disappointing as it was quite dark and the sarcophagus replica isn't set up to get a good view or photo of the lid, you need to be able to view from above. At our pickup location we waited for over twenty minutes due to the guide not properly handing us off.
