Ruin city review: Tenam Puente

Yeah! All we do here for weekend trips here in Chiapas is swim and climb pyramids, sometimes both on the same day. If you head towards Comitan with its historical town centre, tasty food and own-label agave spirit you’re within easy reach of at least three archaeological sites and four swimming spots. Pyramids: Chinkultic, Tenam Puente and Tenam Rosario (I haven’t been to Rosario yet). Water: El Chiflon, Lagos de Montebello, Lagos de Colon, Chukumaltik, and further on, Las Nubes.

Tenam Puente is lovely and wooded… It has lots of different levels and sections so as you walk and climb you find new views, pyramids and ball courts. Feels more explore-y than some of the ancient cities built on flat ground. I don’t pretend to know much about archaeology or art history so my archaeology reviews are mostly based on whether I enjoyed it despite my ignorance. Tenam Puente gets four starts… climbing to the top of the main pyramid you can see until the far horizon and imagine Maya communications from pyramid to pyramid.
