The second phase of this hotel received a total investment of $4.2 million USD.

This means you as a buyer can feel confident to invest in Mexico property in Yucatan within the eco-lifestyle trend.
Various places on the Yucatan Peninsula, such as Tulum, have successfully developed this lifestyle atmosphere to a very high extent. The state of Yucatan itself has a good deal of potential in the area, with a large number of biosphere reserves and unique natural phenomena, such as the cave and underground river system, with cool, refreshing pools at their entrance ways known as "cenotes."

With the new expansion, the Eco Paradise Hotel Xixim now offers 32 rooms, three massage cubicles, a gym, yoga room, swimming pool, juice bars and whirlpool therapy area. The hotel combines the rich natural setting of the biosphere reserve with Yucatan's beautiful beaches, and luxury hotel facilities, combining three of the area's most attractive features.
To facilitate access to the hotel, the Ministry of Public Works is working on rebuilding the road to Xixim, which invested 1.5 million pesos (about $140,000 USD), which is expected to be completed in the near future.
This likewise reflects the government's commitment to providing infrastructure investment to support foreign investment into the area.
