Playa del Carmen Real Estate & New Tourist Train

One of the key attractions to buying topmexicorealestate.com/playadelcarmen-real-estate is it's close and easy access to Latin America's largest concentration of tourist destinations, of which Playa del Carmen is geographically central. A new tourist train running from the north of the region in Cancun, down through Playa del Carmen, Tulum and south to the Costa Maya area near the Belize border will be yet another factor in giving residents of Playa del Carmen easy, comfortable access to all of this area.

 

The new train was announced in mid April 2011 by state Secretary of Tourism, Juan Carlos Gonzalez, who also called on investors to find opportunities to participate in growing tourism throughout the region.

 

Besides offering residence new forms of travel and access to everything from Mayan ruins to lagoons for fishing, this kind of tourism infrastructure has also kept the market of Playa del Carmen land for sale very alive and appealing for investment. Besides the new rail coming up, new access roads have been built, a second international airport is underway for the area, and a new highway access heading out of the west of the city (i.e. the part away from the beachfront) is in the plans. With each of these new transportation features, new land investment opportunities are arising, offering buyers the potential for excellent return in one of Latin America's fastest growing communities.

 

Another development of this rail will be to bring growing tourism to the south of the state – the areas of Costa Maya (Mahahual), Bacalar and Chetumal. Growing tourism in this part of the state will likewise bring new Mexico property options for American and Canadian buyers.

 

The town of Mahahual and the surrounding beachfront areas of Costa Maya are already home to a small expat community, and receive a regular stream of cruise ship visits. Bacalar has not yet reached the international tourism or real estate radar in a significant way, but shows excellent potential with a large lagoon perfect for fishing, nature sight seeing and a number of other recreational activities.

 

Both areas show high potential for attractive real estate options, especially as tourism in the south of the state grows and more of the conveniences begin to appear that draw Americans and Canadians to places like Playa del Carmen.

 

The south of the state is also rich in so far fairly undiscovered Mayan pyramid sites attractive to residents from all parts of the region.
