One of the strengths of Mexico real estate over other inexpensive expat destinations is its proximity to home, and the easy, inexpensive and frequent travel options back home. In the case of Cozumel real estate, this is especially important, since it is an island. The airport, however, has continued to offer a growing number of direct flight options to the U.S. and Canada to help increase this convenience.
The most recent example of this is a new direct flight option connecting Cozumel to the city of Chicago. The new flight will be especially convenient for Americans from the Midwest who choose to retire in Mexico, buying property in Cozumel to escape from the cold winters of the northern states.
The new flights have been opened both by the demand of vacationers and retirees from the Midwest, who seek warmer climates during the winter season, as well as with the purpose of further promoting Cozumel as a winter vacation destination.
The promotion of the destination also offers benefits to residents, since the arrival of more tourists draws further investment in infrastructure and services, including nature parks, golf courses and marinas.
In addition to implementing the new flight, which will be offered by American Airlines, the municipal government of Cozumel will also be doing follow-up work with tour operators and airline management in order to ensure that tourists and residents are aware of the new possibility, with the primary aim of increasing new visitor arrivals to the island of Cozumel, which is already one of the favorite destinations in the Caribbean.
Cozumel is especially famous for its beautiful beaches and the beautiful coral reef which offers excellent options for diving. There are also several Mayan ruins on the island, as well as the town of Cozumel (San Miguel) which offers many conveniences and services. Retirees also have the option of several upscale resorts, offering the best of a relaxing and modern lifestyle.
The flight will operate once a week, and will begin service on February 12, 2011. For the moment, the flight will be seasonal, operating during the high season until April 2. Operation will continue in November 2011.
