“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.
