The Mayan Train (Tren Maya) is a visionary project of grand scale that aims to boost the economy and tourism in the Yucatan Peninsula by connecting major cities and tourist destinations through a 1500-kilometer railway line. This mega-project is expected to increase tourism significantly, which, in turn, will have a positive impact on the real estate industry. The Mayan Train is estimated to cost between 120 billion and 150 billion pesos, which will be obtained through a combination of government and private funds.
The Tren Maya project was launched in 2019 and is officially well underway with construction and the first fives segments are set to open in late 2023. The train will have 3 purposes, passenger train for long distance rides, short distance rides and a cargo train. This incredible passenger and cargo rail route will take you all around the stunning Riviera Maya and the Yucatán Peninsula. It is expected to be the epitome of efficiency, traveling in style and comfort, leaving each station every two hours, from 6 am to 10 pm, very ideal for catching that dreamy Mexican sunset before returning to your home station.
It will provide its users top of the line amenities, wifi on board, bathrooms, air conditioning, security cameras and will be fully accessible to disabled passengers. It will become much easier for all travelers to get to their favorite destination. Two of the main stations are located near the international airports of Cancun and Merida and will, in some cases, accelerate by 30% the time to reach your destination. The Mayan train will connect five states together, Campeche, Yucatán, Chiapas, Tabascos and Quintana Roo with more than 1000 km of rails both for passenger trains and cargo.
The imminent arrival of the Tren Maya in Mexico is set to have a positive impact on the Real Estate Market in Yucatan. In fact we have already seen a substantial increase in property prices. The increased accessibility of these areas will certainly generate an increase in housing prices & make investors and property owners very happy in the 5 states that the train will travel through.
