The Train marks progress in less than 1 month. Mayan Train Achieves Record of More than 15 thousand Passengers in 24 Days.
The Mayan Train, the great infrastructure project of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has begun to redefine transportation and tourism in southeastern Mexico.
In its first 24 days since inauguration, this railway project has achieved a notable milestone, transporting 15,579 passengers on 144 trips. This, despite the fact that only two of the three planned stages of the train have been inaugurated.
A Promising Start with Impressive Statistics
General Óscar Lozano Águila, director of the Mayan Train, revealed these impressive figures, reflecting the train’s potential to transform mobility in the region. The first stage, inaugurated on December 15, connects Campeche with Cancún, and the second, which began on December 31, extends this service to Palenque.
The data provided shows that the majority of users are domestic tourists, followed by residents of the five states that the train crosses and international visitors. These numbers not only highlight the popularity of the train among Mexicans but also its appeal to travelers from other countries.

Progressing towards Project Completion
Continued progress in the construction of the remaining sections of the Mayan Train is a crucial aspect of the project. Sections 5 south, 6 and 7 are in progress with the goal of completion by the end of February.
These additional sections will cover a total of 621 kilometers, passing through twelve archaeological zones, and will mark significant progress in the objective of connecting the entire planned route.
General Ricardo Vallejo, head of the “Felipe Ángeles” group of military engineers, detailed the percentages of progress of these sections, indicating that section 5 North has 80% progress, section 6 74%, and section 7 a 73.5%. These figures are testament to the government’s commitment to completing this ambitious project.
More than a Means of Transportation: A Boost to Regional Development
In addition to the construction of the track, the Mayan Train is accompanied by 840 complementary works. The Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) is in charge of the Mayan Train hotels, and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has rehabilitated 12 archaeological zones.
These additional initiatives are testament to the broader impact of the Mayan Train, not only as a means of transportation, but as an engine of tourism and cultural development.
