In Mexico, in the state of Chiapas, some archaeological monuments of the Mayan civilisation have become dangerous for tourists because of the war of drug cartels. 06.02.2024

It is now impossible to visit the ruins of Yashchilan, famous for its sculptures and monumental architecture. Drug cartels have also set up their own checkpoints on the roads leading to the ruins of Bonampak and the Lagartero site. Tourists’ documents are checked and mobile phones taken away, most guides abandon their usual routes and do not lead groups of foreigners to archaeological sites. The Mexican government does not intervene in the war between bandit groups for influence and claims that the territory of Chiapas remains safe for tourists.
