January 5th, 2013 by ejalbright

With the new year the price of tickets to get into Chichen Itza has increased to 187 234 pesos for non-Mexicans.

The increase is five pesos over last year. Based on current exchange rates, this means citizens of the United States and Canada will be paying the equivalent of more than $14 $18.33 to enter the archaeological zone.

The Diario de Yucatan reports that Chichen Itza is being swarmed by visitors, more than 2,000 per day, and that lines getting into the archaeological zone are long. According to state officials one reason for the long lines is that the computer systems are old making the sale of each ticket take longer.
