The Mexican Caribbean is one of the most popular vacation spots in the world, and for a good reason. With its stunning white-sand beaches, turquoise-blue waters, fascinating Mayan heritage and vibrant atmosphere, it's no wonder that millions of people worldwide flock to this fascinating coastal area year after year.
If you are thinking of investing in the Mexican Caribbean, there are two things you should keep in mind. First, you must ensure that the property or land you buy is located in one of the best destinations in the area. Location is everything in real estate investment. And secondly, be prepared to invest a little more than in other parts of Mexico, but remember that you are investing in your property in paradise, which translates into a much higher return on your initial investment.
Don't know where to invest in the Mexican Caribbean? Here we tell you about the 4 best places to do it. They are very different destinations, all with paradisiacal beaches, but with different infrastructure, atmosphere and lifestyle.
Without a doubt, Cancun is the most famous destination in the Mexican Caribbean. It was the first to grow considerably and put Mexico's beautiful beaches on the world map. Today, it is a city with more than one million inhabitants, still growing, with an extensive tourist offer, world-class gastronomy, and endless entertainment options.
It is an excellent place to invest if you want a more modern city lifestyle, with a touch of glamour, like a Mexican Miami. Due to its constant growth, it also has many development opportunities, and its international airport is the second busiest and most important in Mexico (after Mexico City).
There are several reasons why Playa del Carmen is one of the best places to invest in the Mexican Caribbean. First of all, its location is excellent. "Playa", as its inhabitants affectionately call it, is located one hour south of Cancun, in the Riviera Maya, one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Mexico (and the world). The area is known for its clear turquoise waters, white-sand beaches and fascinating jungle setting. It is a fast-growing tourist destination with a strong economy. Its infrastructure is good and there are many opportunities for businesses that cater to the thousands of tourists that come here each year. Also, there is a lot of potential for real estate development, as demand for vacation homes and hotels continues to increase.
30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, locates this small beach town that is an underwater paradise with a coral reef and beautiful turtles swimming near the beach. In fact, "Akumal" in Mayan means "place of turtles", so they have been its inhabitants for thousands of years.
It is a destination with a very relaxed and local vibe, which has seen growth in its real estate sector in recent years. Akumal is a perfect place for those looking to buy a property in a quiet and uncrowded environment. Its tourist and living infrastructure is a bit limited, but that hasn't stopped investors who see great potential here.
And, of course, we have Tulum, the Mexican Caribbean's tourist and real estate hotspot. It is the place where everyone wants to be and be seen. Not only for its beaches, natural beauty, and Mayan history but also for the incredible food, art and music scene here. The city is constantly growing and expanding, with new hotels, restaurants, boutiques and activities popping up all the time. In addition, its infrastructure is excellent, with roads connecting to the entire area, medical services, schools, shops and everything you need to have a high-quality life. As expected, there's a great demand for lodging in Tulum, which is why it has become one of the best places in Mexico to invest in properties to convert them into vacation rentals. Now is the best time to invest in Tulum because, with mega projects such as its International Airport scheduled to be completed in 2023 and the Mayan Train, the value of properties will grow, providing an even better return on investment than it already has.
If you are interested in investing in the Mexican Caribbean, specifically in Tulum, you have come to the right place! At Riviera Tulum, we have residential and commercial homes and lots in a private development with 24/7 security, located in the middle of the beautiful Mayan jungle, just a few minutes from the beach.
