From January to last May, archeological tourism to the 15 of the 17 sites of the entity was one million 260 thousand 674, with a decrease of 10.49 percent with respect to the same period of 2022, which totaled one million 408 thousand 361.
Nationally, the number of archaeological and museum tourism visitors was eight million 129 thousand 85, with an annual increase of 40.08 percent.
