T h e R is e o f a G r e at N ati o n an d A P o p ular To urist De stinatio n . While Mexico is rich in natural resources, cultural history and dramatic scenery, the people of this country have long been recognized for their gracious hospitality. As Mexico rose to one of the world’s Top 10 tourist destinations, the government launched a $223 billion National Infrastructure Plan to make travel more comfortable and efficient, as well as to secure the vitality of an economy expected to grow into the world’s 7th largest by 2050. The government invested billions in Cancún and the Riviera Maya to create a vigorous tourist economy, which contributes to rising land values as more people vacation here: With biodiversity that includes 10% of the world’s plant and animal species, along with sugarwhite beaches sparkling against the turquoise sea, it’s no wonder more and more people are buying vacation opportunities in Cancún and the Riviera Maya. The stage is now set for Mexico to become the largest retirement destination for Americans outside the United States. So Much To Do And a Lifetime to Explore It. Mo r e acti v iti e s than an y oth er C ari bbe an d estinati o n . S ay hello to vacation living in the Yucatán. Ten, twenty or thirty years from now, you’ll still find unexpected corners that will intrigue, excite and delight. I t all starts with the Western Hemisphere’s longest barrier reef, stretching from Cancún all the way down the coast to Belize. These waters teem with beautifully colored tropical fish and exotic coral. F or millennia, the surf has tumbled across this reef, crushing coral and building the Caribbean’s finest beach. It sparkles white and feels sugar-soft underfoot. Owing to its reflective properties, the sand remains cool even at midday. I n this land of abundance the Maya thrived for thousands of years. Carefully excavated cities reflect amazing scientific and architectural advances, as well as artifacts attesting to trade with cultures throughout the Caribbean. R i v i e ra M aya’ s e c o l o gical th em e parks T he Riviera Maya’s ecological theme parks are wonderful opportunities to invest in deeper relationships with family and friends.
