Share This

Tulum begins to displace Chichén Itzá as a tourist attraction as more national and foreign tourists prefer to visit the Mayan ruins of Quintana Roo, rather than spending 2 hours on a bus ride to see the pyramid that is considered one of the seven wonders and best known of the modern world.

Statistics from DATATUR of the Ministry of Tourism indicate that in the first two months of 2018, visitors to Chichén Itzá added 253, 965 against 247, 273 in Tulum, which means a difference of a little less than 3%.

Even when adding the two most visited areas of both states, Quintana Roo exceeds Yucatan, for example, Chichén Itzá and Uxmal account for 277,359 visitors, while Tulum and Coba received 329, 472 (only in the January – February 2018 period).
