We write a lot about Mexico, because it has a lot to offer, of course. Sun, sea, food, lovely people and it’s a holiday bargain. The country is probably more diverse than you remember and, as you jaunt from city to city, you can see how Mexico is a fascinating patchwork of interconnected history and stories. Recently, though, we have been enthused in the changes in how travelers can get to Mexico. Until just a few months ago, the route was . . . well, fly there. But, excitingly, there are more and different options that make the trek that much more convenient and approachable . . . . and fast.

First of all, there is the now fully operational Tren Maya. We’ve written about it here, but Wikipedia says it best: The Tren Maya (sometimes also Mayan Train or Maya Train) is a 1,554-kilometre (966 mi) intercity railway in Mexico that traverses the Yucatán Peninsula. Construction began in June 2020 and the Campeche-Cancún section began operation on December 15, 2023, with the rest of the line to open later. The railway begins in Cancún International Airport and travels southwest towards Palenque, Chiapas, via two routes that encircle the peninsula. The project aims to connect tourist destinations in the Caribbean with lesser-known sites inland, including historic Mayan sites from which it derives its name. And, it’s fully operational.

But, there’s more when it comes to travel changes in Mexico. A new start-up (which is almost more of a re-brand) is now in the air. Using some of Aeromexico’s former fleet, Mexicana de Aviacion is taking the reigns to offer flights to Tulum, Merida, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Tijuana, Guadalahara and more. Watch the video below to learn about this low-cost carrier. If you love Mexico, this airline may just become your best friend.
