12 Archaeological Zones Reopen Their Doors after Beryl Pass

- July 8, 2024

After several days of being closed, this Sunday the INAH opened 12 archaeological zones in Yucatán.

Except for Chichén Itzá, starting today, the 12 open archaeological zones have begun to receive tourists after being closed due to Hurricane Beryl, according to the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Following the implementation of the Disaster Prevention Program for Cultural Heritage (PREVINAH), today 12 cultural heritage sites affiliated with this institution in the state will reopen.

Specifically, the archaeological zones are:

Acanceh, Aké, Chacmultún, Ek Balam, Izamal, Kabah, Labná, Oxkintok, Sayil, Xlapak, Xcambó, and Uxmal, as well as the Yucatán Regional Museum of Anthropology at Palacio Cantón.

Due to Civil Protection and cleaning reasons, Chichén Itzá will remain closed until Monday, as well as the Main Site Museum.

This pre-Columbian city will reopen to the public on Monday. In response, the INAH appealed to the public’s understanding and encouraged them to visit Ek Balam instead.
