Tulum is a beautiful beach town located on the Riviera Maya, Mexico. The town is best known for its pristine beaches, turquoise water, Mayan ruins and bohemian vibe. Tulum is also home to a number of luxury resorts and boutique hotels, as well as chic fashion stores and fabulous restaurants nestled in the jungle.
In recent years, Tulum has seen a boom in tourism. The town has been listed as one of the top travel destinations in the world by numerous publications. In order to accommodate the increasing number of visitors, Tulum is in the process of constructing a new international airport. The airport is expected to be completed by 2024.
In addition to the new airport, Tulum will also be connected to the new Maya Train which is a high-speed rail system that will connect the major cities of the Riviera Maya. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023. The new airport and the Maya Train are expected to have a positive impact on the economy and real estate market of Tulum. If you are thinking of investing in Tulum, this could be the best time to do so!
The new airport will have a capacity of handling 4 million passengers per year, it will become the second-largest airport on the Yucatán Peninsula (after Cancún airport). It will have a multipurpose military air base that will strengthen the security of the national airspace, help the civilian population in case of disasters and attend forest fires.
The new airport will be a game-changer for Tulum. Currently, the closest international airport is located in Cancun. The Cancun airport is about 1.5 hours away from Tulum.
The new airport will be much closer and will make it easier for visitors to reach Tulum, and it will be integrated with the current highway system and the Mayan Train. Everything will be connected, making it easier to move around the region.
The positive impact it will have on tourism will benefit businesses in Tulum and will also lead to the development of new lodging options in the area.
The Maya Train is planned to be a high-speed passenger train that will connect the major cities of the Riviera Maya. The train will travel through 5 Mexican states in the southeast: Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo (in the Riviera Maya); traveling close to 1,500 km (932 mi).
It is scheduled to be completed and begin operations by the end of 2023. The goal of this project is to boost the growth of tourism and economic development in the Yucatán Peninsula. With 19 stations, the train will provide visitors to the region with easier access to several small towns and Mayan villages.
The Mexican government estimates that the Maya Train will attract more than 3 million tourists annually during the first few years and transport around 8,000 passengers daily.
The new airport and the Maya Train are expected to impact tourism in Tulum positively.
The new airport will make it easier for visitors to reach Tulum, while the Maya Train will connect Tulum to the other major cities of the Riviera Maya. This will make it easier for visitors to explore the wonders of the Mayan region.
The increased tourism will lead to the development of new hotels and resorts and more gastronomic and entertainment offerings, giving visitors more options for their vacations in Tulum and the Riviera Maya.
The new airport and the Maya Train are also expected to have a positive impact on the economy and real estate market of Tulum. If you are thinking of investing in Tulum, now is a good time to do so.
Both projects will drive even more money and demand for accommodation into Tulum. They will generate a lot of capital gains in the real estate sector and business opportunities that will make many people come to live in Tulum and require a place to live.
