The Mayan Train, an iconic project of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, resumed its activities on Saturday, July 6 after the impact of Hurricane Beryl on the Yucatán Peninsula.

This natural event forced train services to be temporarily suspended, which also affected the Mexicana de Aviación airline, managed by the Armed Forces.

The railway company, operated by the Army, confirmed that exhaustive inspections were carried out along the 901 kilometers of tracks within the hurricane’s range to ensure the integrity of the infrastructure.

Following these verifications, it was determined that operations could be safely resumed. “The service resumes normally as of today on all published routes and schedules,” the company reported in a statement.

The Mayan Train, inaugurated in December 2023, covers more than 1,500 kilometers crossing the states of Quintana Roo, Campeche, Yucatán, Chiapas and Tabasco.

The interruption of its services began on Thursday, July 4 due to the arrival of Beryl, which impacted as a category 2 hurricane.

Impact of Hurricane Beryl on the Yucatan Peninsula

Hurricane Beryl entered Quintana Roo on Friday, July 5 with the strength of a category 2, crossed Yucatán and then exited the Gulf of Mexico, where it is expected to regain strength before making landfall again on the border between Texas and Tamaulipas.

This cyclone is notable for being the first hurricane of the season and for having reached such intensity at the beginning of the year, which caught the attention of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

Fortunately, Beryl’s passage left little damage to infrastructure and there were no victims to mourn. Quintana Roo, known for being the main tourist destination in Mexico thanks to Cancun, quickly resumed its activities.

Governor Mara Lezama announced the resumption of operations at the Cancun International Airport and the lifting of dry law throughout the state due to improved weather conditions.

Preparations and responses to the hurricane

To face the hurricane, trained personnel were deployed throughout the Mayan Train railway network, with the aim of guaranteeing the safety of operations and the integrity of the infrastructure.

The inspections included verification of the tracks, bridges and stations, ensuring that everything was in optimal condition to resume service.

Quintana Roo authorities also prepared adequately, issuing alerts and recommendations to the population, such as identifying temporary shelters and storing food and drinking water.

These preventive actions helped minimize risks and keep the population safe during the hurricane.

Resumption of service and next steps

With the resumption of Mayan Train services and normal operations at Cancun International Airport, the region is preparing to move forward.

The Mayan Train will continue to be a key driver for the economic and tourism development of southeastern Mexico, connecting important destinations and facilitating the transportation of people and goods.
