“The Maya Train is a project that is not being done anywhere in the world today. It is a source of pride for our civil and military engineering,” said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador while supervising construction of this project.

In Tulum, he verified the alternative implemented by the National Defense Secretariat with the aim of respecting the ecosystem in the section in that area. It is an elevated viaduct that will have minimal impact on underground rivers and caverns.

In a video on social media, the president said that "the purpose is not to cause any damage to the environment, to nature, to the environment."

He added that the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) is responsible for rescue and preservation of the archaeological heritage located along the 1,550-kilometer route.

He endorsed the commitment to inaugurate the Maya Train in 2024 with all the stations and infrastructure necessary for its operation, in addition to the Tulum International Airport.

The president was accompanied by the Governor of Quintana Roo, Mara Lezama; the Secretary of the Environment and Natural Resources, Maria Luisa Albores González; the Secretary of National Defense, Luis Cresencio Sandoval González; the general director of the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (Fonatur), Javier May Rodríguez; the general director of the INAH, Diego Prieto Hernández and the undersecretary of Expenditures of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, Juan Pablo De Botton Falcón.
