Mexico condos for sale in Cancun are a market closely tied to the area's tourism industry. For this reason it is important for buyers that the state's new Secretary of Tourism is dedicated to strengthening the hotel sector – a focus which will have benefits for Americans and Canadians enjoying Cancun retirement as well as other expats.
As of mid-April 2011, Juan Carlos Gonzalez is replacing Sara Latife Ruiz in the state government of Quintana Roo (which includes Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Tulum); he has identified his main the task as strengthening promotion and working with the hotel sector.
Both of these points have indirect benefits for those retiring in Cancun. Cancun is currently Mexico's top tourist destination in terms of numbers of foreign vacationers. This fact has also made Cancun one of Mexico's leading locations in terms of foreign investment, activities, infrastructure, and conveniences. In more concrete terms, this means there are excellent roads, international stores, large-screen movie theaters, professional golf courses, organized tours of nearby Mayan ruins, eco-parks and, in general, all the features that motivate retirees to invest in Cancun condos for sale and allow them to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle at a low price.
Increasing promotion and strengthening the hotel sector even more will mean that life in Cancun will only become more attractive.
For this reason, it is also important for expats that places like Cancun have political leaders dedicated to supporting and improving tourism in the area.
The governor of the state, Roberto Borge who recently moved into the role after working as mayor of the booming tourist town of Playa del Carmen just down the road from Cancun, made the move to appoint a new Secretary of Tourism for his state with a special focus on these issues. The governor expressed confidence that the new head of tourism for the state would continue to strengthen the work in key projects and in bringing federal resources to the state.
Both the state's emphasis on these points and the newly strengthened federal emphasis on increasing tourism are promising for the industry, and for the lifestyle retirees can enjoy when living in Cancun.
