PM Wants to Bring Maya Train Close to Belize; Connect San Pedro to the Yucatan

The Prime Minister was ebullient this weekend after what he describes as a very productive five days of meetings in Mexico, as guest of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Among the mutually beneficial projects he says they discussed were bringing the Tren Maya close to the Belize border and hooking up San Pedro directly to the Yucatan.


Prime Minister John Briceno

We had a very exciting five days in Mexico. We had several meetings with several functionaries. We met with Funatur, who is the group in charge of developing the Tren Maya project that connects entire south and southwest of Mexico. And looking at how sooner we can, more sooner hopefully than later, to link up Tren Maya. We discussed how at the moment to bring at least the range to end at the border where we can put the modern facilities for tourists to off load, and again goods that we can bring to the country. We also discussed a very interesting concept—How is it that we can connect San Pedro to Cancun, which is called the Rivera Maya, which is a canal that separates the island of Ambergris Caye from Mexico. So once, you can connect them, you can get in your car from San Pedro drive all the way to Cancun, or from Cancun drive all the way to San Pedro.”
