December is seen as a great month for Tulum, the Tulum Airport and Mayan Train will have connection in the military air base. These two mega works promise to boost tourism and economic benefits throughout the south of Quintana Roo.
Starting December 15, travelers will be able to experience the first phase of the Mayan Train, which will connect picturesque Palenque in Chiapas with beautiful Cancun in Quintana Roo. Furthermore, this milestone coincides with the long-awaited inauguration of the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport.
December promises to be a significant month for the Fourth Transformation (Q4), as two infrastructural titans will be presented: the emblematic Mayan Train and the Tulum Airport.
These two pillars will converge at a crucial connecting point: the Tulum Airport station of the Mayan Train. So how will this connection materialize? Let’s dive into the details.
Tulum Airport and Mayan Train will have Connection
The airport’s grand opening is marked on the calendar for December 1. The federal government is confident that this project will be a catalyst for “the economic renaissance of the Mexican southeast.”
However, there is one important update. On October 6, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) announced that section 5 of the Mayan Train still has work to do. It is in the southern section of this section where the Tulum Airport station is located, and the completion of this connection could extend until early 2024, according to current projections.
Section 5 south of the Mayan Train will be the central axis that will connect the train with the airport, strategically located at the military air base.

The essence of the design of the Tulum Airport station is an organic architectural mosaic, with generous openings designed to facilitate air circulation, according to government sources. The structure has been conceived following sustainability guidelines, with a reticular roof that will instinctively guide passengers towards the heart of the station.
The design of this station is a sample of national talent, a masterpiece created by the brightest minds in Mexico.
As a Mayan Train traveler, you will have the freedom to board or get off at any of the 34 stations spread across the five regions it covers: Chiapas, Campeche, Tabasco, Yucatán and Quintana Roo.
