Craft vendors of Chichén Itzá: should they stay or should they go?

Artisans of Chichén Itzá continue to await a dignified space to work and offer their products to national and international tourists who visit the archaeological site, since Yucatan does not yet have federal resources.

“The talks to solve this problem are still ongoing”, said the director of the Board of Cultural and Tourism Units of the State of Yucatan (Cultur), Mauricio Díaz Montalvo.

In this regard, he explained that it is the federal government headed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador through the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), in coordination with the government of Yucatán, responsible for analyzing the options to resolve the conflict that has been an issue for many years now.

In that sense, Díaz Montalvo stressed that today the area has an excessive number of vendors and added that the state government needs to solve this situation, but without the federal resources, there is nothing they can do.

“Right now we are analyzing all the options together with the Federal Government to reach an agreement,” Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, director of the Board of Cultural and Tourism Units of the State of Yucatan (Cultur) concluded.
