Considerations when buying tickets for the Maya Train

In the “Ruta” section, you select the travel direction on the Maya Train, either from Palenque to Cancun or vice versa. This option exclusively serves to choose the travel direction. In the “origen” box, indicate the place where you will board the train, while in the “destino” box, specify where you are headed.

If the destination does not appear in the corresponding box after selecting the origin, it is recommended to verify the chosen route of the Maya Train, as it is possible that a route has been selected where the train has already passed, and therefore, the destination will not be available.

Currently, there are two available routes for the Maya Train: 1) from Cancun Airport to Palenque and 2) from Palenque to Cancun Airport. Additionally, on February 29, 2024, the inauguration of the new route connecting Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen will take place.
