Mexican Caribbean, know the reasons to invest

The Caribbean is an important tourist area for the country, so real estate investment has grown in recent years thanks to the tourism sector. More and more foreigners are looking to visit and acquire a property in this area, as well as nationals from other states.

The increase in vacation rentals in the main cities of the Caribbean drives the economic growth of the state and the real estate sector, thanks to platforms such as Airbnb and Vrba, among others.

Likewise, there are more companies of international stature that seek to expand and open offices in this area. The commercial sector is one of the most benefited, in addition to improving the quality of life of the inhabitants and increasing the sources of employment in the state.

In this article Blue World City will talk about the reasons why investing in the Mexican Caribbean is one of the greatest opportunities to do business in the real estate sector with industrial and commercial land.

Reasons to invest in the Mexican Caribbean

Undoubtedly one of the main reasons that drives investors and entrepreneurs to invest in real estate in Quintana Roo, is the considerable economic spillover that allows generating high profits.

The reasons to invest in Quintana Roo are many, however, we will mention the most important ones, for which buying a property in this state is the best investment you can make to protect your capital from inflation and financial bubbles, since the real estate is a stable and secure market.

1. Location

The Mexican Caribbean is located to the south of Mexico and extends throughout the state of Quintana Roo and the southeast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

In addition to tourism, its location allows import and export activities, thanks to the fact that it is in a suitable location near the Gulf of Mexico and the United States, as well as Latin America.

In addition to this, the Cancun International Airport connects the rest of the country and the world with the main cities of the Caribbean, since it is one of the most important in Mexico and receives the most traffic.

The Riviera Maya and Cancun are world-class tourist destinations, considered paradises on earth. Both its location and its tropical climate allow the extensive development of the area in economic matters and, above all, real estate.

In real estate issues, location is a key factor in increasing a property’s equity, and with the many attributes that the Caribbean enjoys, investing in this area is a safe bet, both for companies and entrepreneurs.

2. Tourism

Tourism is one of the main economic activities of the state, and this is because the white sand beaches with turquoise waters of the Caribbean fall in love with anyone who visits them.

The mysticism that surrounds the traditions and culture of the region is a key factor, since the Mayan culture is lived to the surface and the various activities that can be carried out in the area involve elements that enhance it.

An example of this is the great economic benefit that has its origin in the multiple aquatic activities that you can do, from swimming in the sea, to diving in the coral reefs. The rental of equipment and hiring of tours is an important source of income for the tenants.

The Caribbean includes the most important tourist destinations in the country, which are:

  • Carmen beach
  • Cancun
  • Women Island
  • Conroy Island
  • Cozumel
  • Hellbox
  • Tulum

We can also mention Puerto Morelos – a fishing village with interesting attractions – and Grand Costa Maya made up of: Chetumal, Bacalar and Mahagua.

These destinations welcome millions of visitors each year, boosting the state’s economy and fostering local commerce.

The Caribbean has countless natural and tourist attractions in addition to its beaches, such as archaeological zones, cenotes, exclusive beach clubs located in the hotel zone, restaurants, bars and much more.

3. Infrastructure

The government of Quintana Roo is aware that, to maintain the high rates of tourist influx, it must allocate a significant amount of the state budget to improve and strengthen public services.

Thanks to the fact that the Riviera Maya and Cancun are relatively young areas, the infrastructure is more modern than in other states; Furthermore, with the arrival of new companies and the creation of more businesses, it is expected to satisfy the needs of visitors and residents.

The improvement in the infrastructure of the cities that make up the Mexican Caribbean considerably increases the capital gain of the area, making real estate investment more profitable than in other places.

Among the improvements in which it has been invested is the investment of 1,500 million pesos, whose objective was to return to Quintana Roo the state with fast internet through fiber optics.

4. Growth

The high number of visitors that the beautiful Caribbean beaches attract ensures constant growth, as the flow of tourists keeps the local economy in constant motion.

This provides new business and employment opportunities, in order to offer the best products and services, both to locals and foreigners.

This growth is due – in part – to the high numbers of Foreign Direct Investment in the state of Quintana Roo, since the beginning of 2019 an investment of 2 billion dollars was announced during the period 2019-2021 , which augurs a good forecast for years to come.

The fact that foreigners can acquire a property in Mexico encourages the economic and real estate growth of the state, for which changes have been made in the regulations that facilitate the pertinent procedures for this to be carried out.

5. Price

It might be thought that since it is a privileged area with high added value, it is expensive to acquire land in Cancun or Playa del Carmen, however, the prices are more accessible than in the center and north of the country.

The square meter of land, being cheaper, offers the possibility of acquiring more than one lot or land that allows you to diversify your investments, or in any case, a larger budget for building a business.

In addition, the offer of properties is more varied, since being a young area, there is still a lot of space to grow and develop new residential, commercial and industrial areas.

The northern and central areas of the country are struggling to meet the demand for well-located land, since they are already saturated areas.

The real estate sector in southeastern Mexico still has much to offer with land in prime locations at competitive prices for various types of business and industry.

Current economic outlook

Arturo Herrera Gutiérrez – head of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) – declared that the state of Quintana Roo is part of the pillars of the economy and economic growth of the country, since since 2013 there has been an annual growth of at least 3.1% in financial matters, which was an important warning for investors interested in this region of Mexico.

Financial specialists – including Banco de México (Banco) – estimate that the national economy will reach 6.5% progress by the end of 2021 , which augurs good figures for 2022.

Although the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic affected the world economy, especially sectors such as tourism, the economic reactivation is on the right track, so places like the Riviera Maya are adapting to the new sanitary measures that allow to receive the largest possible tourist flow safely.

Among the sectors that participated in the first stage of economic reactivation in the country is the real estate and construction sectors, because their importance as a pillar in the Mexican economy is recognized.

As the vaccination process progresses in the country, it is possible to extend hours and expand the occupancy capacity of hotels, theaters, cinemas, restaurants and other customer service businesses.

As well as large real estate projects such as the Central de Anastos de Quintana Roo based in Playa del Carmen, which will be the largest in the state.

We can say that the economic outlook maintains encouraging figures to end the year with a good rhythm, and that 2022 will arrive with a greater number of investment opportunities.
