The Tren Maya

An extension of an originally planned Cancun to Palenque train in Quintana Roo and Chiapas, the Maya Train is also going to also include the states of Campeche and Yucatan. The railroad project, also known as the Transpeninsular Tourist Train, will cover more territory than initially planned, spanning 1,500 kilometers (930 miles). The train contributes to the regional development of the Northern Zone, considerably improves urban and tourist mobility, integrates labor markets and generates an alternative for the distribution of inputs for the economic activity of the Riviera Maya.
