Icon of art déco, Belmond breaks the mold again with the world’s most famous train. Its design features polished wood and vintage upholstery and accessories; the elegance and glamour from the Golden Age can be breathed in each ride.
It offers traditional cabins (suite, individual, and twin) and the Grand Suites, a true ode to luxury, a collection of living rooms under the name of Europe’s most romantic cities: Paris, Venice, and Istanbul. (Each one of them represents the city whose name it bears).
This is not a hotel train, but it travels across one of Mexico’s most popular destinations. It features six passenger cars (with capacity for 340 people), a dining car, a terrace, and a bar car. The route is 350 kilometers long and you can get off the train in El Fuerte, Divisadero, and Creel stops.
