Mayapán archaeological site remains closed to the public

The Mayapán archaeological zone will remain closed to the public indefinitely because an agreement has not been reached between the INAH and the Ejidatarios of Telchaquillo Tecoh, Yucatan; who demand higher compensation for the lands where the archaeological site is located.

The Ejidal commissioner Rusel Gregorio García mentioned that the INAH offered them 8.15 million pesos for the 16 hectares of the site, while the Ejidatarios requested up to 64 million pesos.

The situation is complicated by the mistrust of the Ejidatarios, who fear that the INAH will not fulfill its commitments, similar to what happened in other archaeological sites such as Dzibilchaltún.

The extension of the Ejido lands in dispute is 14 hectares, although the archaeological zone covers a larger area, including a circular wall with a radius of nine kilometers.

The Ejidatarios reiterated that they will continue blocking access to Mayapán until they reach a solution that they consider fair.
