May 27, 2011 – Recently, Playa del Carmen real estate has been the focal point of various transportation infrastructure projects, including new highway bridges, an upcoming international airport, and a proposal for a new tourist-focused fast train. Each of these projects likewise benefits the Cancun real estate market and/or the Tulum real estate market.
On May 19, 2011 Juan Carlos Gonzalez, the Minister of Tourism for Quintana Roo (the state which includes Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Tulum) received a visit from the Consul of France in Cancun, Florent Houssais, and the director of the company Vinci, Mainsard Phillippe, who expressed interest in investing in transportation infrastructure sectors in Quintana Roo, as they have done in countries like Egypt, Greece and his native France. The project in which he is specifically interested is the new fast train proposed to run from Cancun to Tulum.
The project is expected to benefit real estate markets in the area by allowing residents further transportation options to enjoy the activities and services throughout this thriving real estate region. It will also bring more tourism flow to the area, attracting further investment, which in turn offers residents – local and expat – a higher quality of life.
Phillippe, the French investor, asked the state’s Secretary of Tourism to convey road infrastructure projects, port and the fast train to the governor Roberto Borge Angulo, who has shown commitment to the development of Quintana Roo to maintain its growing world status as one of the best options for tourism.
The Ministry of Tourism also highlighted the benefits which Quintana Roo has for tourism, not only because of its natural beauty but because of its major infrastructure;
