The reopening is welcomed not only as an opportunity for travelers to visit an ancient monument of Mexico's culture, but also an economic resume for locals who resort to the site to sell souvenirs and crafts.
The location would receive only 3,000 tourists per day and would allow visitors only to the main archaeological site and the Avenue of the Dead. Masks and temperature checks are mandatory for tourists' entrance.
Teotihuacan received an average of 9,000 visitors daily before the pandemic. Despite the economic loss because of allowance reduction, experts consider that it could prevent deterioration.
