In spite of the planning of the incoming government to extend the Maya Train route, the private initiative affirmed that the only profitable stretches are those located in Quintana Roo and Yucatan.
During his participation in the Forbes Economic Forum, Braulio Arsuaga, president of Grupo Presidente hotels and Alejandro Zozaya, president of Apple Leisure Group, agreed that it will be difficult for this project to be successful in other Southeastern states.
According to the president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the line of the Maya Train contemplates going through five states: Quintana Roo, Campeche, Yucatán, Tabasco and Chiapas.
Braulio Arsuaga of Grupo Presidente added that “lowering this project to other states is not profitable,” so the route should be properly traced and evaluated correctly.
Zozaya clarified that Quintana Roo will be he most profitable stretch of the Maya Train route, because of the high traffic of tourists, both foreign and domestic, as well as geographically, since the train will run on flat territory and not on a mountainous area.
“Cancun, Tulum, Chichen Itza and even Merida have the potential to be profitable, but I do not see any financial viability on the other stations in the near future, so I will not lose money, and I don’t see any investors willing to enter those other stretches,” said Zozaya.
For his part, the governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín González, informed that Chinese, Canadian and European companies have shown interest in investing in this railroad project that will pass through different destinations within their state.
