Within Mexico Real Estate, Tulum Real Estate has become one of the “new" areas which shows promise of growing into a thriving market over the next few years. As Cancun and Playa del Carmen have established themselves among the top tourism and real estate destinations, buyers have become interested in new Mexico Land opportunities just down the road in Tulum, famous for its awe-inspiring pyramid site, overlooking the beach. As more North Americans and Europeans have begun buying land in Tulum, and the area's importance as a real estate destination has begun to grow, plans have been made for an international airport; Tulum's growth and new attention has also been reflected in significant road improvements in Tulum and on the highways leading to nearby areas.
Over recent years, the roads in the Tulum real estate area have grown and modernized, with additions, signs, overpasses. For 2010 the Federal government has dedicated the funds necessary for continuing with the modernization and continuation of road works, giving a budget of more than 110 million dollars, which are part of the platform of economic and social development in Tulum and the eight other municipalities of the state of Quintana Roo. The efforts of the state's governor, Felix Gonzalez Canto, have been, as he managed to have new levels of federal investment guaranteed for 2010.
In the area of expansion and modernization of federal highways, the stretch from Tulum to Cafetal on the Chetumal-Cancun highway will receive an investment of over 30 million dollars to complete approximately 45 miles. The project consists of upgrading and expanding the existing road's width from 7 to 12 meters at its crown, adding drainage, asphalt concrete pavement, signage, correcting horizontal and vertical alignment, strengthening of the existing layers of pavement and installing ducts for fiber optic cables.
This stretch of highway is of key importance in providing a better link between the northern, central and southern state, a point which is continually being given greater attention, and helping to move Tulum real estate to a more central position, not only in location, but also in importance, in the state's thriving market. The highway is used not only by property owners from the area, but allows for a flow of domestic and foreign tourism as well as local artisans who form an important factor in the culture and atmosphere of Tulum and the Riviera Maya.
In the northern of the state of Quintana Roo (everything north of Tulum, towards Cancun), where the focus of real estate opportunities and development have taken place in the state, infrastructure has been strengthened with the construction and opening of highway overpasses in Chemuyil, Akumal and Puerto Aventuras in the municipalities of Playa del Carmen and Tulum, and in Puerto Morelos in the municipality of Cancun. The section of the federal highway which passes directly through Playa del Carmen is currently under construction, with three new bridges being built over the city's busiest intersections. These are only a few examples of the main road improvements in the area.
While these improvements are on the stretch of highway north of Tulum, they benefit Tulum land investors or other property owners by opening improving access to other established real estate areas nearby; Playa del Carmen is only 45 minutes away from Tulum, and Cancun about 1.5 hrs. As Tulum grows over the next few years, and North American buyers continue to invest in land to build their future dream home, Tulum will continue to offer more services; at the same time, easy access to the services of Cancun and Playa del Carmen will add to the convenience of living in Tulum.
