The connection of the Mayan Train and the Tulum Airport generate great expectations in the tourism sector in the south of Quintana Roo.
December 15 marks a key date in the transformation of Mexican infrastructure: the first section of the Mayan Train, which will connect the historic Palenque in Chiapas and the beautiful Cancún in Quintana Roo, will begin operations.
At the same time, travelers will be able to disembark at the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport.
December seems to be a festive month for the agenda of the Fourth Transformation (4T), as the inauguration of projects such as the Mayan Train and the aforementioned airport are celebrated.
In fact, these two mega works will be intertwined, thanks to the connection of the “Tulum Aeropuerto” station on the train itinerary. But what exactly can we expect from this integration? Below we provide you with a detailed overview.

Connection of the Mayan Train and the Tulum Airport
The airport is scheduled to open on December 1, positioning itself as a key driver for the “resurgence of the Mexican southeast,” according to government perspectives.
However, there is a nuance to consider. Recently, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) indicated that a specific section of the Mayan Train, section 5, awaits completion.
It is precisely in the southern portion of this section where the “Tulum Aeropuerto” station is located. Therefore, this connection could materialize, depending on the progress of the works, at the beginning of 2024.
The meeting point, called section 5 south of the Mayan Train, will directly connect the railway with the new airport, located in the vicinity of a military air-naval base.

From an architectural point of view, the “Tulum Aeropuerto” station has been visualized as an entity of organic lines with generous open spaces, favoring air circulation, in accordance with the specifications provided by the Government.
It has been conceived with a strong focus on sustainability and features a mesh roof that instinctively directs visitors towards the core of the station.
Underscoring the national commitment, Mexican authorities highlight that this innovative design is the product of local ingenuity.
It is essential to remember that the Mayan Train, once fully operational, will offer passengers the option of boarding or disembarking at 34 different stations, dispersed among the five states that its route includes: Chiapas, Campeche, Tabasco, Yucatán and Quintana Roo.
