Quintana Roo, the state which includes many successful tourism and real estate markets, such as the Playa del Carmen real estate market, as well as those of Cancun and Tulum, has already seen proposals for a fast train serving tourists and residents travelling through the area; most recently, a French businessman has shown interest in investing in this project.
In mid-May, 2011, the state’s Tourism Minister, Juan Carlos Gonzalez, received a visit from the Consul of France in Cancun, Florent Houssais, and the director of the company Vinci, Mainsard Phillippe, who expressed interest in investing in communications infrastructure sectors in Quintana Roo, as he has done in countries like Egypt, Greece and his native France.
The international interest reflects the importance and potential of the project, which is also promising for real estate in the state, especially in areas like Playa del Carmen. Projects like this train continue to develop the area as a single tourism region, rather than a series of very separate areas. Real estate in Playa del Carmen is one of the markets which have benefited most from this kind of infrastructure and the growth of the region’s tourism as a whole.
On one hand, Playa del Carmen land for sale continues to be an excellent investment. As one of Latin America’s fastest growing communities and most successful tourism destinations, demand for new development has offered some buyers an annual return on investment higher than 20%. On the other hand, popular sub-markets like Playa del Carmen condos for sale continue to gain a growing number of services and conveniences.
This tourist-focused fast train, along with the appearance of a new international airport about an hour south in the community of Tulum, which will be the second after the one in Cancun, will continue to place Playa del Carmen in a central location and role in Latin America’s most successful tourism region.
Mainsard Phillippe was particularly interested in investing in the area’s tourism transportation because of the commitment of the current governor, Roberto Borge Angulo, to the development of Quintana Roo for the purpose of keeping it always as one of the best international options in tourism. He also highlighted the area’s natural beauty combined with well-developed infrastructure, all of which are benefits for real estate buyers as much as for international investors.
