And the rest of archaeological zones?
The archaeological zones of payment they are the most attractive vestiges for the visitor, that is why they are commercialized and preserved in their development. Several of the archaeological zones administered by the INAH they are freely available, like the magnificent Anthill. Other vestiges, once studied, are under the administration of the local ejido, as it happens in The Orangery, where they open the museum to the visitor and take you on a tour. Other so many thousands of minor vestiges that do not have the potential to be open to the public, are scattered throughout the jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula. Up to these places there are sometimes easy accesses and others that are not so easy, where you will have to hit a machete with people from nearby communities. A few Mayan vestiges remain in private lands. All the archaeological zones, except those located in private areas, you can access. In some cases, if they are studying a new site, the entry is restricted by INAH.
