TULUM, México – In accordance with a recent meeting between Diego Prieto, the head of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), and the ejidatarios of Cobá in Tulum municipality, the official norms for tourism operations have been established. Today, the INAH took to its social media platforms to announce the much-anticipated reopening of the Cobá archaeological zone.

With a warm invitation that reads, “Cobá finally opens its doors to the public, from Monday to Sunday, from 8 am to 5 pm. We eagerly await your arrival in Quintana Roo,” the federal agency informed visitors about the reopening. Admission to the site will cost 90 pesos per person.

The announcement highlights Cobá as an ancient and significant Maya city nestled among lakes, renowned for its extensive network of sacbe’ob, or ancient roads. The rounded Observatory, towering Nohoch Mul Pyramid, and captivating inscriptions have fascinated visitors throughout history and continue to captivate audiences today.

This reopening fulfills one of the key agreements reached with the ejidatarios: the public reopening of this sacred archaeological site. Furthermore, approximately 70 million pesos will be invested in the restoration and improvement of the interior spaces within the archaeological remnants through the Archaeological Zones Improvement Program (Promeza).
