According to Sipse.com, “SPECTRE” (2015) a part of the crew moves to Palenque, Chiapas, Southeast Mexico to film helicopter stunts. Zocalo area has too limited space and the buildings are close, they want to avoid all kind of accidents.

A source close to the production tells that next week a group of 80 people will move to area of Palenque, Chiapas.

It is still unknown if Daniel Craig travels there if they only film some aspects in the air, presence of the cast is not necessary. After finishing with the shots that are still pending, the production will travel to Morocco.

Palenque (Yucatec Maya: Bàak’ /ɓàːkʼ/) was a Maya city state in southern Mexico that flourished in the 7th century. The Palenque ruins date from ca. 226 BC to ca. AD 799. After its decline, it was absorbed into the jungle of cedar, mahogany, and sapodilla trees,but has since been excavated and restored and is now a famous archaeological site attracting thousands of visitors. It is located near the Usumacinta River in the Mexican state of Chiapas, about 130 km (81 mi) south of Ciudad del Carmen, 150 m (164 yd) above sea level. (Wikipedia)
