Mexico’s top 3 foreign exchange earnings sources are Oil, Remittances, and Tourism. As of today, Mexico has become a major international player in the tourism industry. Its proximity to the USA and Canada are key factors to this achievement, but its natural beauty also attracts an ever increasing quantity of Europeans and tourism from all over the world.

Just in the first three months of 2017, Mexico reached a historical peak in international arrivals, registering 9.3 millions of visitors, and an income due to tourism of five billion dollars.

International tourism in Mexico is projected to continue its aggressive rate of growth for the next 10 years or more, and Cancun and the Riviera Maya (Playa del Carmen is in the heart of the Riviera Maya) are Mexico’s number one tourist beach destination.

Tourism has become a new priority in Mexico. The government is quite aware of its competitive advantage in the global vacation and retirement markets and wishes to strengthen its overall economy with increased infrastructure development and investments.

Private investment has closely followed these trends in Mexico, which can be seen in the many major developments up and down the Riviera Maya coast: major 5 star hotel resorts, golf courses, shopping malls with renowned brands and many service companies are establishing their presence in the region. Wal-Mart, Mega Comercial Mexicana, Soriana, big shopping centers, and privately owned and operated hospitals have either opened their doors or have broken grounds in Playa del Carmen. These new industries have brought many new jobs to the region, which has also brought record number of people moving into the city putting pressure on the long term rental market as well as the Playa del Carmen real estate market.

Most real estate markets have unique factors that make them ideal for purchasing. A few of these factors influence strongly on maintaining or increasing your overall wealth. We can help you identify stable regions for purchasing property considering your budget, investing goals, and also your personal taste.

"Thomas’s site Realty executives was the only one that took time to search for what we were looking for and
not what they wanted to sell. The properties offered appeared to fit the bill perfectly at a sensible budget... We are now about to start altering the property downstairs which will entail getting the builders in, once again Thomas is there
offering his assistance to monitor the works for us and sending photographs of progress. This speaks volumes about his integrity as most agents disappear in the dust when the property is bought, whereas Thomas is helpful to the end."
