Cobá ejidos reach agreement with government for archaeological zone

Tulum, Q.R. — Ejidos from the community of Cobá met with government officials to reach an operating agreement for the archaeological zone. The two sides met Tuesday.

Ejidos held a meeting with the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) General Director Diego Prieto Hernández, Governor Mara Lezama and Tulum Mayor Diego Castañón Trejo.

Both sides met to iron out an agreement for the operation of the archaeological zone that will also see around 70 million invested from the federal Promeza Project.

Both sides have agreed to publicly open site in the coming days with new rates and that through the Program of Improvement of Archaeological Zones (Promeza), around 70 million pesos will be invested to rehabilitate the spaces inside the enclosure.

The Ejidos, who have been charging an entry fee of 100 pesos since November of 2021, will move their ticket office to the main entrance of the parking lot from where the INAH will reactivate its standard fee of 90 pesos per person.
