Tourist railroad Tren Maya could expand with connections to Belize

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Discussions continue about the possibility of extending Mexico’s tourist railroad project, Tren Maya, into Belize.

The section of the Quintana Roo Maya Train could connect to Belize.

According to Riviera Maya News, Governor Mara Lezama Espinoza said the proposal is being discussed since Mexico’s 7 Tren Maya sections are soon complete.

Governor Espinoza said that there is a possibility of expanding the Tren Maya project beyond Mexico’s borders by extending the route to Belize. 

However, the proposal to extend to Belize would be done after the completion of the track which is scheduled for the end of February 2024.

In addition, the Governor said that the proposal to extend the Maya Train to Belize is already in the hands of the Federal Government of Mexico. 

This project represents a unique opportunity to improve connectivity and cultural and economic exchange between Mexico and Belize.

During a visit to Mexico in 2021, Prime Minister John Briceño expressed interest in connecting Belize with Mexico’s Tren Maya. 

The project would efficiently connect southeastern Mexico with Central and South America through Belize, thus strengthening commercial and tourism ties in the region.
