He added in a statement, that the Ministry of Tourism of the State and Cultur will work very strongly and in a coordinated manner in those two areas during the first 100 days of the current administration.

In time, Governor Mauricio Vila will present what we hope will be the tourist project for ​​Progreso and Uxmal, which includes a substantial improvement of the light and sound show specifically for Uxmal.
