Everything is ready for the Ministry of Public Health and Social Assistance in conjunction with the Presidential Commission for Emergency Care (COPRECOVID) to give their approval, the document details.
It also ensures that the details of the reactivation plan will be presented when that authorization is confirmed.
As planned, the most visited archaeological parks would begin to gradually operate and with enough space to avoid crowds, including Tikal, Yaxha, Tak'alik Ab'aj, Iximche, Zaculeu and El Zotz.
