The Secretary of Tourism, Juan Carlos Gonzalez announced recently that there is to be a new tourism train in the works that will act as a huge boost to tourism in the region. The train will carry passengers between Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and even further south to the Costa Maya near the Belize border.
The new train means improved ease of access to everything the region has to offer. Whether it be fishing, Mayan ruins, water parks, diving or hitting Cancun for a day of world-class shopping, the train provides simple, inexpensive and direct connection to get there. This is especially true for those ex-pats now living in Playa del Carmen, as it the central destination between these locations.
In turn, the train means a huge benefit to the real estate market in the Riviera Maya as areas that may have seems a tad isolated are now very much connected to the central hubs and the largest concentration of tourist destinations opening up many more options for investors. Juan Carlos Gonzalez, also called on investors to find opportunities to participate in growing tourism throughout the region as further construction continues for new access roads, a second international airport (Tulum) and new highway access out of Playa del Carmen, further proof of its being Latin America’s fastest growing location.
