After months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, archaeological sites in Quintana Roo and Yucatán are open.
The first sites to open in Quintana Roo in mid-September were Tulum, Coba, Muyil and San Gervasio. Sites in southern Quintana Roo including Kohunlich, Dzibanche, Oxtankah and Chacchoben opened in October. In the Yucatan, Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Uxmal, Dzibilchaltun, Mayapan and Kinich Kakmo in Izamal are all now admitting visitors.
New guidelines are in place for visiting the sites, for example masks are mandatory, social distancing is respected and there are limits on the number of visitors admitted per day, at Chichen Itza it is 3,000 and groups are limited to a maximum of 10 people. The evening shows at Chichen Itza and Uxmal are suspended until further notice.
With their ancient grandeur, air of mystery and jungle settings rich in nature, the Yucatan’s archaeological sites invite a moment of reflection. Breathe in the fresh air, close your eyes, listen to the sounds of nature and soak up the energy.
