For several decades now, Cancun Real Estate has been a favorite for international property purchasers for enjoying a beachfront lifestyle or a for investment purposes. For Mexico MLS listings, and internationally, Cancun MLS listings have become among the most popular for buyers. Recent events have begun to bring even further attention to Cancun as an international travel hub and business center, which will in turn open up further real estate opportunities in Cancun. This new expanded international status has been highlighted in several events, among which is Cancun's representation in the World Travel Market 2009, Europe's most important tourism fair, held in London, England.
The Governor of Quintana Roo, Cancun's state, Felix Gonzalez attended the event along with the mayor of Cozumel, Juan Carlos Gonzalez, and of Playa del Carmen, Roman Quián. The governor presented the virtues of Cancun not only as the key tourism destination in the Mexican Caribbean, but one of the top destinations in Latin America, many of which also reflect Cancun's appeal as an international real estate destination.
Among the points to which Gonzalez drew attention are the ongoing beach recovery project, which is re-widening beaches in Cancun to expand the enjoyment of visitors and residents. Likewise, the newly opened second runway of Cancun International Airport, which makes the airport the most modern and cost efficient air port in Latin America and the Caribbean. This expansion is one of the key points in converting Cancun to an international business center, allowing the airport to begin its conversion into an international travel hub between North America and South America, and giving larger capacity to the larger amount of business visitors expected in the near future. Besides new real estate investment opportunities, this growth also means more convenience in traveling for Cancun residents.
The event was attended by major wholesalers and tour operators in Europe. The Cancun Visitors Board held about 20 meetings with different wholesale operators, airlines and media, where representatives highlighted the salient features of Cancun, particularly the allusion to the new promotion project being developed called “Cancun and the treasures of the Mexican Caribbean. "
Cancun is an intrinsic part of the rugged competition that exists in the Caribbean region for the tourist and real estate markets of this region of Europe, its unique diversity, quality of service and natural atmosphere; the attractions and activities present value for money, just as real estate, where Cancun is certainly number one.
