Mexico | Agency says it has no powers to remove obtrusive vendors from Chichén Itza WH site

The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) lacks legal powers and has declared itself not capable to remove the street vendors from the Chichen Itza archaeological site main entrance. This is a problem that has not been resolved for more than three decades, and as time goes by, it is getting bigger and bigger.


Interviewed by Notimex, the head of the Department of Legal Procedures of the INAH Yucatan Center, José Arturo Chab Cárdenas, explained that the presence of the vendors in that archaeological zone dates from 1988.
