Las Labradas archaeological site to reopen October 29th


San Ignacio, Sin.- After the closure of the archaeological zone derived from the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in Sinaloa, reported that next Thursday, October 29 at 10 am, the reopening of the Las Labradas archaeological site will take place in San Ignacio.

Through a statement, Servando Rojo Quintero, director of the INAH Sinaloa Center, said that the facilities will open during normal hours but will apply all preventive health measures in order to avoid the spread of Covid-19 infections in the state.

Rojo Quintero urged to comply with the recommendations when accessing the archaeological zone, in order to have a good performance of the activities, safeguard the heritage and give protection to the personnel who work there.

It should be remembered that currently, Sinaloa is in yellow at the epidemiological traffic light and a total of 610 active patients, with a cutoff on October 25, although San Ignacio does not have any confirmed patients with Covid-19.

Las Labradas is a beach that began to gain fame in 2002, when, thanks to tourist promotions, something that locals knew for a long time: the existence of hundreds of engravings in the volcanic rocks that cover the coast.

Enter through the site museum, the Museum of Las Labradas, a simple enclosure that leads to the beach through walkways covered with palm leaves (Playa de Las Labradas, Municipality of San Ignacio, Sinaloa). 

And as you leave, contemplate the landscape of piled-up and almost perfectly cubic rocks, shimmering in the Sinaloan sun.
