AMLO and Sheinbaum to Tour the Yucatán Peninsula this Weekend

- June 26, 2024

This weekend, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will embark on a tour of the Yucatán Peninsula alongside incoming President Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo.

The tour will include visits to Mérida in Yucatán, Campeche’s Valle de Edzná, and Cancún, Quintana Roo, according to an announcement made during his morning press conference on Wednesday.

According to the preliminary agenda, López Obrador will arrive in Campeche on Friday, June 28th to inaugurate the Edzná Museum, a Mayan archaeological site located in the Valle de Edzná. “We’re going to go to Edzná because the museum is almost finished, the hotel is ready, and the archaeological site has been completely restored. We’ll be supervising,” he stated.

The tour will also include stops in Mérida and Cancún, where López Obrador will hold evaluation meetings with Sheinbaum.

During his press conference, López Obrador clarified that there would not be joint conferences between him and Sheinbaum: “No, no. Claudia is doing a great job, very well, and has her own agenda. That’s why we decided to go on the weekends, so she can keep working on what she’s doing, and we can too. But yes, we’ll meet up on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It’s very important for us to go together because we exchange views on projects, works, and economic issues.” López Obrador added that he will be fully retired in a few months.
