Negotiation to acquire land in the archaeological zone of Uxmal advances

The official noted that care must be taken in the land acquisition process.

The director of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), Diego Prieto, reported that progress is being made in the negotiations for the Mexican State to acquire the land where the archaeological site of Uxmal is located, in Yucatan, since it belongs to a private individual.

During the morning of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Prieto pointed out that all the archaeological spaces are property of the nation, but not the land on which they are located, hence, in the case of Uxmal, they are in negotiations with the owner, that it accepted an official appraisal to sell the space, and it is expected that it will be released next week.

In this sense, he explained that it is relevant that the INAH advance in resolving this legal duality, seeking the gradual regularization of the land where areas of archaeological monuments are located.

That is, he affirmed, what is being done in the case of Uxmal, which is located within the route that the Mayan Train will run.

“It is being done for the first time because INAH has never had the support of the Mexican government with this level of commitment to achieve it.”
