The Izamal Tren Maya Station Guide

If you are heading to Izamal on the Tren Maya, here are some details about the station, transportation and other details. We are writing this guide as of March 2024. Currently not that many people use this station, and it is still being worked on. 

The station boasts an expansive open-air design, complemented by a substantial flat roof that provides ample coverage. Adjacent to the station lies a modest courtyard adorned with flora and designated areas for artisanal vendors and retail outlets. Towards the terminus of the primary station structure, there appears to be plans for a forthcoming water feature. Given Izamal’s typically warm climate, the absence of cooling fans within the station is regrettable. Presently, amenities such as vendors, water fountains, and vending machines are notably absent from the premises. So, if you are going to be waiting at the station, be prepared. 

The station itself is open air but with a large flat roof covering everything. There is a small courtyard of plants and spaces for artisans and shops to open. At the end of the main part of the station is what looks like a future water feature. As you might know, the weather is usually on the hot side in Izamal. It is a shame there are no fans in the station. Currently there are no vendors, water fountains, or vending machines in the station. 

In the center of the station is a ticket booth and information booth.
