Visitors to Mexico’s popular Chichén Itzá ruins will have to pay more in 2016.
The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) along with the state government have increased the site’s entrance fee. Foreigner adults will how have to pay 232 pesos (USD $13), up 8 pesos from the 2015 fees. Mexican nationals are now charged 154 pesos (USD $8.65), but the site remains free to them on Sundays. Children under 13 are still admitted free.
The entrance fee to the site is divided into two amounts, one being the state (culture) and the second being the federal (INAH). The fees are paid at two separate windows. To enter the park, all visitors must present both tickets.
Chichén Itzá is the largest of the archaeological cities of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. It is one of the country’s most visited tourist destinations and was granted World Heritage Site status in 1988 by UNESCO. It was also selected as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Chichén Itzá sees approximately 1.4 million visitors each year.
