Riviera Maya, Q.R. — After a work tour in Quintana Roo, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador reiterated that Maya Train project is designed to be an effective and modern means of communication.
He reported that the train will bring the archaeological zones of the southeast of the country closer to national and foreign tourism.
Through his social networks, the president reaffirmed that Ichkabal will be part of the Program for the Improvement of Archaeological Zones (Promeza) promoted by the Government of Mexico through the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).
López Obrador also said that the ancient Mayan city will promote nearby tourist sites such as the Laguna de los Siete Colores in the southern community of Bacalar. AMLO was in the state of Quintana Roo days before the holidays to review work updates on his Maya Train project.
Actual progress reports on sections 5, 6 and 7 which correspond to the Cancun, Riviera Maya and Tulum sections southward, have not been independently reported on.
