Customs changes coming soon to Mexican airports

Pressing the button as you go through Customs in Cancun Airport and anxiously waiting to see if the green light flashes or the red light indicating that you need to step aside for an inspection may soon be a thing of the past. The Mexican government has announced the implementation of a pilot project in which international passengers’ luggage will be inspected by Customs agents using x-ray scanners in the luggage claim area, thus eliminating the traffic light system and customs declaration form.

Passengers who have items to declare will pay the customs duties after their luggage is scanned.

The pilot program was launched in Terminal 2 in Mexico City and will be implemented in Terminal 1 and in Cancun International Airport later this year. Los Cabos, Guadalajara and Monterrey will follow in 2018.

New park for Cancun in the pipelines

A growing city like Cancun needs parks and green spaces for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike and while we await the first phase of Parque Cancun, in the area behind the schools and universities on Bonampak Avenue bordering Nichupte Lagoon, news comes of another park planned for the heart of Cancun.

The green area in question is located in Supermanzana 5 between Tulum and Nader Avenues, behind the Fonatur building, in the zone of the old Ki Huic craft market. The project would include installation of streetlights, walkways, benches and garden upkeep and is part of an initiative to restore Cancun city center.

City Hall is waiting for funding for this project and, subject to approval, work is slated to begin some time in May.

New discovery at Chichen Itza

Archaeologists working for the Mexican Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) have discovered that the Ossuary, another of the ancient temples at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Chichen Itza, is aligned according to the precise calculations of long lost astronomers. Like the Pyramid of Kukulcan, famous for the serpent of light and shadow that forms along the staircase on the days of the spring and fall Equinox, the Ossuary is also the site of a light and shadow occurrence twice a year, although less spectacular.

Located half way between the Pyramid of Kukulcan and The Observatory, the Ossuary is a 12-meter-high temple pyramid built over a cave. On May 23 and July 19, when the sun reaches its zenith and objects cast no shadows, the mouth of the cave is illuminated, possibly showing the path to Xibalba, the Mayan Underworld and the home of the gods.
