If you are considering investing in Playa del Carmen property, Mexico's growing effort to position itself as one of the world's top tourism destinations are one of the best indicators that its one of the best investments you could make.
You may or may not have heard of the 2011 International Tourism Fair in Spain (FITUR). During mid-January, this convention aimed to reflect and build the recovery of the sector world-wide, which has good prospects in the immediate future, with the condition of a clear effort from the countries and corporations involved. Mexico is certainly one of the countries most involved, and is most certainly "putting in the effort" especially for places like Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area, which were involved in a very strong promotion effort at this fair and otherwise.
How does this help you as a buyer? For one, if you are investigating Playa del Carmen homes for sale, and condos as well, you will probably be looking for an income from vacation rental either while you are not using your property, or on a full-time investment basis. A strong promotional effort from Mexico's governments and investing corporations will help to draw the tourists needed to keep demand healthy and growing.
Growth in tourism also has a longer-term advantage for all types of property investment, including Playa del Carmen land for sale; tourism growth means infrastructure expansion, new roads, more supermarkets and a growing number of activities, ranging from nature parks and golf courses to movie theaters and shopping centers. This type of growth means that new residential areas are likely to increase in value as new services appear nearby, opening up opportunities for investment on many different budgets.
On the other hand, these same activities simply increase the quality of life for those who choose Playa del Carmen as their second home.
As for the specifics on the FITUR effort, Playa del Carmen, together with the surrounding area and many other destinations throughout Mexico aimed to introduce a wider range of tourist to the natural and cultural riches of Mexico.
The promotion was based on the "10 Paths to Mexico" concept, which include sun and beach destinations, archaeological sites, cultural sites, quaint "Magic Villages", colonial cities and dining experiences; Playa del Carmen offers each of these, except the "Magic Villages" and colonial cities; these, however, can be found within a 3 hour drive, making the surrounding are one of the most diverse and complete.
This fact is ideal both for drawing tourism and for a relaxing, enjoyable lifestyle.
