During the inauguration of the “Mused” site museum in Edzná, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador highlighted that the Mayan Train not only seeks to connect ancient Mayan cities, but also to enhance the cultural greatness of the Mexican southeast.

This project, which unites the civilizations of the past with modern cities, has the collaboration of workers, construction workers and the civil engineering corps of the Mexican Army.

Accompanied by Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, the virtual president-elect, the president thanked everyone involved in the execution of this work, including the general director of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the governor of Campeche, Layda Sansores San Román.

López Obrador also highlighted the honorary participation of tourism businessman Daniel Chávez and mentioned that the Mayan Train will have 1,250 rooms distributed in six hotels along its route.

Claudia Sheinbaum, for her part, stressed that the Mayan Train is one of the president’s greatest legacies, representing a significant transformation that leaves behind the unsustainable neoliberal model and recovers the role of the State in development.

This project not only includes the well-paid participation of workers, but also seeks to reduce inequality and promote the inclusion and development of communities in the southeast.

Diego Prieto, head of the INAH, emphasized that the Mayan Train recovers the memory, identity and pride of belonging of our people, who forged the great civilizations of Mesoamerica.
