Dafne López Martínez, Director of the Cultural and Tourist Services Patronage of the State of Yucatan (Patronato de las Unidades de Servicios Culturales y Turísticos del Estado de Yucatán: Cultur), said that with an investment of more than 41 million pesos ($2 million USD), a comprehensive program for the modernization of tourist facilities in archeological sites and other attractions will be carried out this year.
During the presentation of the program, the official said that it is planned to modernize the “paradores” in Uxmal, Dzibilchaltún, Chichen Itza, Balankanché, Ek Balam, Loltún, Celestún, Halachó, Uaymitún, Zací Craft Market and Picheta Passage, among others.
“We started the year with waterproofing works, general painting, rehabilitation of palapas, viewpoints, construction and repair of docks, extension and repair of parking lots, among others,” she said.
Maintenance service to sanitation, furniture, screens and floors, as well as the modernization of audio, lighting and signage are being already carried out.
“Works of improvement and expansion in areas of nursing, parcels, exhibition and museum exhibit spaces are also considered, in order to renew the image of tourist facilities for the benefit of our visitors and service providers,” she continued.
López Martínez recalled that during 2016 uniforms were delivered to the Patronato staff along with 17 official vehicles including two ambulances.
“We have installed free high speed internet service and an automated information system in the five main tourist facilites with the highest number of visitors: Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Dzilbilchaltún, El Corchito and Celestún”.
“In addition, efforts were made with the Ministry of Tourism to modernize the information modules of the state government; enabling three more: one in Chichen Itza, one in the cruise terminal in the port of Progreso and one in the Siglo XXI Convention Center in Mérida. These modules have digital screens that offer tourist information”, concluded Cultur’s Director.
