Akumal and Tulum Real Estate - The Next Big Thing on the Mexican Caribbean

When we think about Mexico real estate, some of the first places that will come to mind are Cancun and Playa del Carmen – two extremely successful markets where many buyers found their dream home or ideal investment.  Looking at the pattern of southward movement of real estate growth (i.e. from Cancun to Playa del Carmen,) it’s easy to see that “next on the list” of real estate booms are the villages of Tulum and Akumal.

Tulum real estate, about 2 hours south of Cancun, and 1 hour south of Playa del Carmen, is showing very high promise to become the area’s next boom town.  Tourists have taken interest in the town for some time now, and many investors are beginning to turn their interest southward.

Part of Tulum’s appeal is that it is not just a town trying to imitate what happened in Cancun or Playa del Carmen (which, in fact, each developed on a very unique type of appeal from the other;) it offers a unique lifestyle atmosphere very much shaped by environmental and sustainable sympathies.  The tourism in this town has already been shaped in this way, focused on the “green hotel” district which offers natural cabins and rustic rooms where guests can enjoy the refreshing breeze of the sea in a very natural setting.  In Tulum real estate, “green”, “sustainable”, and “environmental” are not just catch words but ideas that are shaping the development style.

Many new developments have already been appearing, and have been catching the interest of both investors and other buyers.

One of the key factors to consider in Tulum is the upcoming Riviera International Airport, to be built just 8 miles outside of town.  This is expected to bring increased tourism and a large influx of interest in real estate here.

Akumal real estate is defined by similar points as Tulum; environmentalism is a very big factor, and it is likewise a short distance from the future location of the new airport.  The defining point is that Akumal is expected to remain a small village and develop a more exclusive flavor as demand rises in Tulum and the surrounding area.

Buyers who wish they had been on the ball back when Cancun or Playa del Carmen saw their boom will do well to take a look at these two villages where there is good potential that they will be the next big success stories.
