One of the places with the most foreign investment in Mexico today is undoubtedly Tulum. Thanks to its
privileged location, the constant flow of tourists it attracts, the constant arrival of celebrities, and its
continuous expansion without giving up its roots as a small coastal town and typical Mexican, it has become
in recent years a place where thousands of visitors spend their holidays and many of them end up investing
in this beautiful place by the Caribbean Sea.
Therefore, real estate developments in Tulum have become an excellent investment for both foreigners and
Mexicans who are looking for alternatives for their real estate investments in the Riviera Maya.
In addition to a relaxed lifestyle, the tranquility and security that is perceived in Tulum and the fact of
being in a small place, but in constant modernization, but without losing its origins, Tulum offers you the
possibility to enjoy nature living surrounded by jungle and discover new animal species that you will hardly
see in other parts of the country.
But as an investor, you must keep in mind that one of the things that most attracts foreigners to the Riviera
Maya is the connection between the pre-Hispanic past and the traditions that are present today.
The Mayan culture is completely present in the day to day life of Tulum, in the food, in the clothing, in
the talk of the locals from Yucatan and the Riviera Maya. This exquisite mixture has made this place a
reference in world tourism and therefore, a perfect destination for investment.
Like Tulum, what makes Merida in the unique state of Yucatan is its privileged location. Despite being a
city, it is 20 minutes from the beach, and thanks to its road infrastructure, it is increasingly easy to
reach ports like Sisal, so you can invest both in the city and in the points closest to it.
Currently, Merida is in an explosion of urban growth and investment, both domestic and foreign. And not only
is investment being made in residential development, far from it. Shopping malls, museums, franchises,
industries, universities, and schools are gradually becoming one of the most important cities in Mexico.
One of Merida’s great strengths is the enormous security that has allowed it to become, year after year, the
safest city in Mexico, thanks to the efforts of the state and municipal governments. For this reason, more
and more people from Mexico are moving to Mérida to study in the most prestigious universities in Mexico
such as the Autonomous University of Mérida, Anahuac, or Marista University.
One of the advantages of investing in Merida is that your investment is secure, since, in addition to
residential developments, there is a great demand for offices, shopping centers, and industrial lots, due to
the proximity to important commercial ports such as Puerto Progreso.
Merida is one of the favorite cities for foreigners to retire in, as it is a city that allows its residents
to enjoy the best of city life without the stress of big cities.
Playa del Carmen
Located in Quintana Roo, it is also part of the so-called Riviera Maya, but what makes this city special is
that it has become one of the most exclusive and cosmopolitan cities in the Yucatan Peninsula.
The 13.5 million tourists who visit it on average every year, can enjoy the famous 5th Avenue and swim in
its paradisiacal beaches and go out to its nightlife centers.
Having an apartment in Playa del Carmen guarantees you the opportunity to rent it when the hotels are busy or
for groups of families and friends, who are looking for a certain freedom of movement, outside a hotel
complex that, on many occasions, is far from the urban center.
Playa del Carmen is characterized by a lifestyle and a cosmopolitan population since it is a city that always
has something new to offer its visitors, who come from all over the world.
The wide range of entertainment is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why Playa del Carmen has become one of
the favorite cities of young Mexicans and foreigners who want to rest quietly and at the same time be in a
place with large shopping centers, bars, shops, and clubs.
Now that you know why you should invest in Mexico and which are the best places to invest in Mexico, it is
time to invest.
From Celestun to Progreso to Isla Holbox, Yucatan’s Gulf Coast, also known as The Emerald Coast or The
Flamingo Coast, enjoys miles of undeveloped and virgin beachfront. This coast offers more variety and
opportunities to budgets large and small, than the more expensive Caribbean coastline on the east side of
This entire coast is populated with wild Pink Flamingos that live, year-round in the lagoons and marshes that
frame the beach coasts of the Yucatan Peninsula. You will find numerous small, traditional fishing villages.
In comparison to the Caribbean coast, the Gulf coast of Yucatan has a more “original” feel. The Gulf coast
is not geared towards tourism and does not have a touristy or glitzy attitude as is commonly found on the
Caribbean coast. The towns along the Gulf coast have been here for years. They have their own unique
personality, vibe, and soul.
There is something here for everyone!
Generally speaking, the stretch of beach beginning from the east side of Progreso to Telchac Puerto is the
pricier beach, populated with many luxurious beach homes. Beach prices are generally higher on this stretch,
compared to the beaches on the west side of Progreso.
