Embark on an unforgettable adventure through the majestic Yucatan Peninsula aboard the Tren Maya (TSÍIMIN-K’ÁAK, or Fire Horse), the latest railway service seamlessly connecting the region’s main cities and tourist hotspots. More than just a transportation solution, the Maya Train is a transformative project enhancing territorial planning and driving the tourism sector, resulting in economic growth and improved connectivity across the peninsula.

Spanning five states in southeastern Mexico, the Tren Maya promises to reduce transportation times and costs for goods, passengers, and tourists. Covering approximately 965.6 miles (1,525 km) of railway tracks across Campeche, Chiapas, Tabasco, Yucatán, and Quintana Roo, this initiative will fuel regional development and enhance residents’ quality of life by fostering connectivity between communities and bolstering the local economy.

Nearly half of the Maya Train route will be electrified, allowing it to achieve speeds of up to 99.4 miles per hour (160 km/h) with cutting-edge technology. This ensures a swift and efficient journey, continuously monitored by internationally recognized security systems.
