Welcome to Pisté

Pisté is a small yet somewhat "cosmopolitan" town of approximately 5,000 persons that forms the central hub and service center of the tourism economy of the nearby archaeological ruins and tourism destination of Chichén Itzá. There are more than a half dozen smaller towns and villages – including Yaxuna, Xocempich, Xkalacoop, Yokdzonot, Popolá – that form the socioeconomic and political periphery of Pisté-Chichén. These villages are often much more traditional in the sense of greater incidence of monolingual Maya speakers, greater reliance on traditional agricultural production for the household economy, more dependence on traditional cultural activities, and underdeveloped urban infrastructure. These communities have been connected to Piste as the social, economic and cultural center of the region for over thirty years.
