The Riviera Maya
Playa del Carmen is the fastest growing city in Latin America , and the world's fastest growing town (by a rate of 26% per annum), according to the Guinness Book of Records.
The Riviera Maya is one of the most popular and beautiful tourism districts in Mexico , covering an 80-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline, and is famous for its all-inclusive resorts, powder white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, and array of recreational activities. As a result, Riviera Maya real estate and the tourism industry are booming.
At $13 US Billion a year, Foreign Tourism is the third largest revenue source for the Mexican Government. The Yucatan Peninsula, which includes Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya, generates over 70% of this $13 billion in this foreign tourism revenue.
For the second consecutive year, condominium construction has outpaced that of hotels. According to the housing consulting firm Softec Mexico , sales of tourist housing in 2007 increased 52.5% as compared to the previous year. Approximately 80% of the beachfront housing was purchased by foreigners, principally from the U.S., Canada and now many European Countries.
The Mexican Government projects a six-fold increase in tourism investments by 2012, to reach 20 billion dollars, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said Thursday.
In a meeting with the business community to promote investment in infrastructure in the tourist sector, Calderon said a record investment of 3.5 billion dollars was reached in 2007, surpassing expectations. "Our wish is, of course, not just to keep up, but to increase the rhythm of investment in the sector this year. By 2012 we want Mexico to have private investment in tourism of at least 20 billion dollars," Calderon said. The Mexican president is keen to promote investment in infrastructure as a way to diffuse the effects of a possible recession in the United States.Click for More on the Playa del Carmen & Riviera Maya Investment Market Opportunity
