One of the most important current infrastructure projects for the Yucatan real estate market is the planned "Peninsular Fast Rail" project. The project will benefit tourism and many local economies, as well as bring new opportunities to real estate buyers.
During a recent presentation of the project, the Governor of the state of Yucatan, Ivonne Ortega, stated that the project will bring better and faster transportation to many parts of the Yucatan Peninsula. The first stage of the project will connect the colonial capital of Merida to the Mayan ruin site Chichen Itza, one of the new Wonders of the Ancient World. Later stages will connect to Playa del Carmen in the east of the Peninsula, just south of Cancun, and to Campeche in the west, a new, up-and-coming tourist region, also offering both colonial and beachfront real estate.
The Governor also said the project is one of the most important and emblematic of our time, and emphasized the importance of carrying out the project.
"It is a project committed to developing tourist routes," said Ortega,"and also intended to move goods, building materials and food, economically, safely and with low emissions."
Each of these points to a specific benefit for North Americans interested in Mexico homes for sale in the Yucatan area. An experienced Mexico broker will be able to guide a buyer to a property to take advantage of the following benefits, among many others:
Developing tourist routes – Besides offering the residents of Merida and surrounding Yucatan communities a new, relaxing option to travel to the Peninsula's many tourist areas; enjoying these sites and activities has been one of Yucatan's main attractions for expat real estate buyers.
Economic transportation of goods and food – This means lower prices and more availability and selection – always a good thing! Merida already benefits from large international stores like Walmart, as well as excellent local markets with a wide variety of well-priced products.
Low emissions – The beauty of the area's nature has also been one of the main attractions for both tourists and expat residents. As tourism grows rapidly, having a clean, affordable transportation option will help to protect this aspect of Yucatan.
Developing Merida as a central arrival point for the peninsula's tourism – While Merida is already one of the area's leading arrival points, it's central positioning and proximity to newly developing tourist areas gives it the potential gain an even more central role in the Peninsula's tourism. This means more services, more convenient traveling, and very likely increased property value.
