Share This

The archaeological site of Uxmal has been modified and remodeled to turn it into a Hándicap Friendly Facilty for senior citizens and handicapped people, so they can visit without moving difficulties.

This transformation has been performed by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), as part of a program of accessibility to buildings and archaeological sites for people with disabilities that has been running since 2011.Captura de pantalla 2014-01-06 a la(s) 12.07.36 PM

Innovations in Uxmal features a ramp located on the southeast side of the “Cuadrángulo de las Monjas” for people depending on wheelchairs to move around.

“Tourists are pleased to note that such an important area of Yucatan is now a state of the art facility and handicap friendly,” said Jose Huchim, who is an Archaeologist and  the person in charge of the Uxmal archaeological site.

Another rehabilitated area was the access to the Governor’s Palace, also allowing the proper circulation of wheelchairs around the large platform.
