Museums and archaeological sites expect to close this year with more than three million visitors….
MERIDA — Yucatan is close to breaking the record of visitor influx in the state’s museums and archaeological zones managed by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).
Last year the tourist total was 2,967,028, and at the end of September of this year, the sum was 2,724,293 visitors, which is a difference of about 242 thousand people.
According to these official statistics, breaking the record of tourists last year should not represent a problem for the state, since the most intense stage of congresses and conventions has just begun, which “triggers” the number of tourists/visitors.
INAH data also revealed that although there are three months to the end of the year, some archaeological zones have already surpassed the number of visitors they received in 2016, and in others the difference is less than 200 people, so that according to their annual statistics, these figures should be overcome.
Reports from the last quarter of the previous two years show that Yucatan is “profiling” to establish a new record in tourism, with more than 242,735 visitors added in these months.
According to previous projections, in October they reach between 185 thousand and 193 thousand tourists, in November the number rises from 206 thousand to almost 250 thousand, and in December they report more than 300 thousand tourists in museums and archaeological sites.
This is the case of Chichén Itzá, where in 2016 2,107,410 people visited. According to this year’s data, Chichén Itzá will register in 2017 a new record of visitors, and the sum of visitors to the places that the INAH manages also will have favorable numbers, since they are outlined to surpass the number of more than three million tourists, a new record for Yucatan.
