VALLADOLID (Times Media Mexico).- The union between two cultures, the Maya and the Inca, was sealed with the signing of a twinning agreement between the mayors of Tinum, Yucatán, Natalia Mis Mex, and Darwin Baca León, representative of the district municipality of Machu Picchu, Peru, which took place on Thursday December 12th, in the “Villas” of Chichén Itzá. The objective is to exchange strategies for a better management of their respective archaeological zones.

Chichen Itza and Machu Picchu are two of the most important archaeological sites in the Americas, and wonders of the modern world, that represent two of the most notorious ancient cultures, the Maya and the Inca, so they considered it vital to seal a pact of brotherhood between the authorities of both communities.

Darwin Baca León spoke of the similarities between these two cultures, and said that both the Maya and the Inca reached a very high level of knowledge and culture, before they were conquered by the Spanish in the sixteenth century.

The signed agreement states that these two ancient cities wish to consolidate their relations of cooperation and friendship in order to strengthen mutual understanding and establish a better relationship between the two indigenous ethnic groups.

They stated that they will exchange strategies, focused on external tourism, in such a way that the South Americans promote the Yucatan; and reciprocally, the Maya region will promote the famous Peruvian attraction of Machu Pichu.

Both sites want to develop new activities and strategies in different fields such as culture, education, sustainable development, environmental protection, citizen participation, municipal development, health, public security, among other things, that influence the development and prosperity of their communities.
