In 2022, 700 million pesos were obtained for the payment of admission to Chichén Itzá, according to the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

The director of the Archaeological Monuments Zone of Chichén Itzá, Marco Antonio Santos Ramírez, indicated that an average of 7,123 tourists arrived every day, and the payment for access was just over two million pesos.
