The negotiations to resolve the situation of the vendors who work within the archaeological zone of Chichén Itzá continue their course. The idea is to provide these merchants with a “decent space” where they can sell their merchanidse.
Authorities of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), are preventing that more salespeople enter the site, according to a statement issued by the Board of the Cultural and Tourist Units of the State of Yucatan (Cultur).
The director of Cultur, Mauricio Diaz Montalvo, said that efforts to solve the problem advance in a timely manner, and that they will find solutions to provide merchants with a safe and clean place to sell their goods, improve their economy, and give tourists a good quality service.
He added that the Federal Government, through the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), as well as the state administration headed by governor Mauricio Vila are currently analyzing the options to resolve this old conflict.
“At the moment the archaeological zone has too many vendors; we’re talking about more than one thousand people; and right now the priority is to make sure that no more merchants come to the place,” the official explained.
Diaz Montalvo declared that, as soon as an agreement is reached, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal will be in charge of making the corresponding announcement.
“We are still analyzing all the options in coordination with the federal government, in order to come to an agreement as soon as possible,” Mauricio Diaz Montalvo concluded.
