13 Culinary Delights of Yucatecan Cuisine

Typical Yucatecan dishes are made with an exquisite mixture of numerous native ingredients and flavors, as well as the elements brought by the Spanish during the time of the Colony, and later influences from the Caribbean, the Middle East, South America and Asia. For this reason, most dishes have its own fascinating story.

Yucatecan cuisine maintains its international reputation due to a unique collection of condiments and spices, such as pumpkin nuggets, oregano, purple onion, sour orange, sweet pepper, lime, annatto, xcatic chili, habanero chili, coriander and others, which when combined give a very distinctive flavor to the food of this region.

Here are some highly recommended dishes to try if you visit Yucatan:

Ancient Mayan ruins in Riviera Maya and Yucatan

Deep in the Yucatan jungle lie the cryptic remains of ancient cities, left by a civilization that spanned the Mesoamerican continent for over two thousand years. Today, the Mayan civilization is known mostly for their hieroglyph writing system and their impressive astrological and mathematical knowledge, which produced a very sophisticated calendar as well as a detailed (though incomplete) record of their history. Their rulers built vast cities with sky-high pyramids, ornate palaces and lavish plazas, filled with amazingly sophisticated works of art and engineering, leaving behind artifacts that you can experience first hand.

Chichen Itza

On of the new 7 wonders of the world!

Chichen-Itza. Souce: travelettes.net

The Sacred City of the Itza is a widely famous Mayan ruin, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. Chichen Itza is quite a big place, where you can spend a good amount of time exploring the different buildings. There are three buildings worth mentioning here: Kukulkán pyramid (aka El Castillo), the Great Ball Court where the Mayas used to play ‘Juego de Pelota’, and the perfectly circular waterhole Cenote Sagrado where large-scale human sacrifices were performed honoring the God of Rain. Also, you’ll be surprised of what happens when you to clap in front of the steps of the Kukulkán pyramid or right in the middle of the Great Ball Court. Try it!

Tulum

Unique Oceanfront ruins!

One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum was the only Mayan settlement to be built just besides the beach of the Caribbean, on a cliff facing the rising sun. The ancient city contains about 50 buildings between temples, palaces and houses. It features the Temple of Frescoes, which contain works that are a magnificent depiction of beautifully conserved Mayan art. Moreover, some of the original coloring of the pictures is still there, which gives archeologists invaluable information about Mayan temple decoration.

Coba

The tallest Mayan pyramid!

Coba means ‘waters stirred by the wind’, because the settlement is surrounded by two large lagoons. One of its main attractions is the ancient pyramid of Nohoch Mul, which is still open for the public to climb the 130 steps up to the top, unlike the Kukulkán pyramid which is closed to visitors. Additionally, visitors can use the original sacbéob (Mayan ceremonial ‘white roads’) which converge at Nohoch Mul to explore different groups of structures such as the Coba Group, Conjunto de Pinturas, Macanxoc Group and Coba Stelae, each of which has unique buildings depicting different aspects of Mayan life.

Ek Balam

Not completely unearthed yet – my personal favorite!

Ek-Balam Ruins - Source: locogringo.com

Ek-Balam Ruins – Source: locogringo.com

Ek Balam (meaning ‘glorious jaguar’ in Mayan) is a small (1 km²) and relatively new site for tourists, which only began restoration in 1977. It was at its peak between 700 and 900 AD, and is thought to have been founded between 100 BC and 300 AD. Only the center of the site was excavated, where the Acropolis Temple is found. It is the most impressive building, measuring 95 feet tall. It has a stucco front with magnificent patterns and spectacular three-dimensional sculptures, which can be found on the six levels of stairs visitors can climb to enjoy the view.

Although the Mayan ruins in the area are some of the most wonderful constructions Mexico has to offer, we have a set of wonderful buildings of our own to show you.

What if you actually decided to do just that? Move there, buy a property, change your life and start working there? What if you turned your dream into reality?

But all in all, with the help of an immigration lawyer, you should have no problems starting your own business there. Especially if you intend to hire locals. And remember, even if you have limited means, in Mexico, your money goes a long way if you are careful.

 

– Of course, Spanish is the national language, you will need to learn it. However there’s no need to be perfectly bilingual to consider moving to Mexico, especially if your business targets fellow expats or tourists. Actually, your English will be a huge advantage.

 

– Last but not least, finding the perfect home…It’s an extremely important part of your relocation. The success of your experience in Mexico greatly depends on finding the house of your dreams. In addition you might end up using part of your home as office space to reduce the costs. This part of your life-changing adventure needs careful planning.

10 reasons to choose the Riviera Maya:

How do you plan to spend your retirement? Is moving South an option? Have you considered relocating to a warmer region for this new phase of your life?

If you’re not sure where to settle, you may want to consider the Riviera Maya as your #1 destination choice. Offering the perfect combination of entertainment, quality of life and profitable investment, there are many reasons why this paradise makes the perfect retirement home:

1. Entertainment:

The ultimate dream location for outdoor enthusiasts, the Riviera Maya offers multiple beach and aquatic activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, diving, swimming, fishing and sailing. The area also provides opportunities to explore natural and historical treasures including Mayan ruins, cenotes and eco-parks. And let’s not forget all the great bars, restaurants, boutiques, and golf courses! Without a doubt, the Riviera Maya gives you plenty to do for many many years!

The Good Life:

2. With more than 300 sunny days annually, a healthy diet of local fresh tropical food, a laid back lifestyle and beautiful surroundings, your quality of life will greatly improve. Your retirement may just be some of the best years of your life!

3. Mexico has all the familiar comforts and commodities you have back home. You’ll find all the major brand name stores such as Costco, Wal-Mart and Home Depot. Mexico also has excellent health services for a fraction of the price. Now that should really ease your mind!

4. The average cost of living in Mexico is 60% of that in the U.S. and Canada. As a result, you’ll enjoy a much higher standard of living!

5. In addition, property taxes are almost nonexistent compared to the 3% that you have in the US and Canada. That means no bad surprises at the end of the year!

6. You may be thinking that Mexico and the Riviera Maya sound wonderful but that it’s just too far from your home and family. Well, no worries because the Riviera Maya is extremely well connected to the US and Canada with over 50 non-stop flights daily.  That, combined with one of the best airport and highway transportation systems in the world makes every traveling experience smooth and trouble-free. The distance won’t feel quite so far from your loved ones.

Profitable Investment:

7. Mexico’s economy is booming and currently one of the strongest in Latin America. Surpassing China for quality and price, Mexico is now the world’s top producer of manufactured goods.

8. Mexico’s tourism is booming and it’s even more the case in the Riviera Maya. Of the millions of tourists who travel to Mexico annually, 70% choose the Riviera Maya as their final destination. As a result, Real Estate sales and the demand for property continue to grow.

9. Thanks to its great weather, beautiful beaches, incredible hotels, world-class golf courses, and ecological and archaeological treasures, tourism and investment in the Riviera Maya keep increasing. It currently is the fastest growing region on the planet. You’ll find great infrastructure, amenities, creature comforts and as a result, a thriving Real Estate market. You can expect on average a 25% equity gain on a pre-construction condo purchases upon project completion. In short, you just can’t lose when you invest in property in the Riviera Maya.

10. Due to the booming tourism, there’s a 100% occupancy rate in the Riviera Maya during the busy season. Demand often exceeds availability. So if you plan to rent your property, you don’t have to worry about finding enough renters. The average investor can expect to see an 8% ROI annually from rental income alone.

 

Bank Trust – What is it? When is it needed?

Mexico Bank Trust and how to Purchase article

Bank Trust – What is it? When is it needed?

Mexico is a beautiful country and economically booming. You might have been thinking about either buying a property (or several properties as vacation rentals ) or developing a business here.

Good news! It’s a very good idea and totally feasible.

There are a few rules to respect, though.

This article will guide you through the various steps and explain two different schemes that will come in handy when you decide to make it happen i.e. setting up a Bank Trust (Fideicomiso) or a Mexican Corporation.

 

First of all, you have to know that a while back, it was impossible for Americans and Canadians to buy property in Mexico that was 50 km from any coastline or 100 km of a neighboring country (called the restricted zone). Only Mexican nationals were allowed to invest in land and properties located in this zone. The Mexican Constitution still stipulates that no foreigner is allowed to acquire land directly in this zone…However…some things have changed.

 

You can now invest in this zone through a Bank Trust:

A bank trust is a property interest held by a Mexican bank who´s sole purpose is to manage the property for the benefit of the owner. It is essential to remember that although the bank legally acts as the trustee and holds the title, your property is not an asset of the bank.

   It is valid for 50 years and can be extended for another 50 years.

You will need to set up one Bank Trust per property. So if you buy 2 or 3, you will end up with 2 or 3 bank trusts.

There is, of course, an annual fee that you’ll have to pay (the fee can vary between 400-800USD per Trust, depending on the bank and each particular case). You will be the main beneficiary but the Trust allows you to designate two beneficiaries (whoever you want: your spouse, children, partner…) and if anything is to happen to you, they will     automatically become main beneficiaries. The beneficiary has every legal right to occupy, rent, modify or inherit the property, and this is protected by the Mexican Constitution. The big advantage of this scheme is that there is no paperwork, you pay once a year and you are done for the next 12 months.

 

The other way to become a titleholder is through a Mexican corporation:

This scheme is advised if you are thinking of buying several properties (you can have as many properties as you want) for commercial use or if you are going to create another business. Indeed,  you can operate a business through it, work from home, or run an internet business. It is actually quite simple to set up (it shouldn’t take more than a week) and you can incorporate under whatever name you wish. You need a minimum of two shareholders, though. This option has many advantages (tax wise for example) but on the downside, it involves a lot of paperwork and administrative work. This scheme requires you to pay on a monthly basis and probably to deal with an accountant (that you will have to pay as well).

 

   You now are a little bit more aware of the different options offered to you if you want to buy in the restricted zone, but the best advice no matter what is always to ask a real estate professional.

At Living Riviera Maya Real Estate, we can help and guide you through each step. We have the experience, knowledge and we will find the solution that works best for you!

 

Buying Property in Mexico- How to Do it Safely and Profitably.

Properties purchase in MexicoSo you just got back from vacationing on the coast of Mexico. After days spent by the Caribbean Sea you have fallen in love with the place- to the point where you now want to buy property in this little bit of paradise.

And who could blame you? Mexico really is heaven on earth…

The great news is that buying property south of the border is possible! The laws have changed considerably in the past 10 years allowing foreigners to purchase property in Mexico. Even the areas along the coasts and borders, formerly designated as the “prohibited zone”, are now available to foreign buyers.

You will need to abide by a few rules, however, if you want to avoid any unwanted hassles. To make a safe and secure purchase in Mexico, be sure to follow the below procedures:

  • Before you do anything, you’ll need to set up a trust called a “Fideicomiso”. A qualified and licensed bank administers real estate through this trust on behalf of the beneficiary, (the owner). The term of this trust is 50 years but can be renewed for another 50 if needed.
  • You’ll also need to ask the seller for the legal title and certificate of no tax liability upfront.
  • Always be careful to NOT give earnest money to the seller! This concept does not exist in Mexico. Neither does escrow. Real-estate agents are not licensed and won’t have a separate account for earnest money. You may be able to find agencies in your country to provide these services.
  • The closing deal will have to take place in the office of a Notario Público. A specialized attorney, the Notario Público acts as a key person in the purchasing process. His duties include: (i) examining the documents of the selling party to ensure their accuracy and legitimacy; (ii) verifying the title; and (iii) searching the public records to determine the status of the seller’s title to the property and the existence of liens against the property.
  • Last but not least, foreign buyers should always be advised to consult counsel in their country of origin or a Mexican counsel regarding real estate transactions. They also can contact title companies in their home country to answer questions about conveyance issues, title searches and title policies for a prospective property as well as escrow account considerations.

The procedures for buying property in Mexico will be different than they are in your country but there are some similarities. Always proceed with caution and educate yourself on the rules and regulations before investing your money to make a secure and profitable purchase in Mexico.

An Insider’s Guide to the Top 10 Beaches in the Riviera Maya

Map of Riviera Maya

Map of the Riviera Maya from sac-be.com

No trip to the Riviera Maya is complete without a visit to one or more of the idyllic beaches in this tropical paradise. But where to go? Surely most beaches in this popular destination are filled to capacity with resorts, sunbathers, and tourists.

Not so. The Riviera Maya still has a few undiscovered gems that have yet to be claimed by developers. Believe it or not, you can still find uncrowded and unsullied beaches in the Riviera Maya.

Whether it’s seclusion you seek or a rocking beach party, these top 10 beaches are worth checking out during your stay:

  1. Maroma Beach. Known as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Maroma Beach is just 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen. If you want a luxury resort or hotel vacation where you can enjoy stunning views of the Caribbean, Maroma Beach may just be what you’re looking for. Many of the resorts and hotels on this beach make respecting the natural environment of the area a priority.

  2. Akumal. Translated to mean, “the land of the turtle”, sea turtles love to lay their eggs in this small Mexican village. Located 60 miles south of Cancun, the clear water and reefs of Akumal beach make for a perfect day of snorkeling and diving.

  3. Mamitas Beach. If it’s a party you want, look no further than Mamitas Beach. It boasts the best nightlife in the area and hosts a number of concerts including the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival and the BPM Festival. Enjoy great music and company overlooking a stunning beach backdrop.

  2. Canibal Royal (aka The Reef Coco Beach). A little harder to get to, but worth checking out if you want a gorgeous, less crowded beach in Playa del Carmen. But bring your own amenities- you won’t find too many shops or restaurants nearby. Located around 48th Street.

  3. Playacar Phase 1. If you’re staying in Playa del Carmen, be sure to check out the beach at the Playacar Phase 1 residential development. You’ll find a wide, expansive and relatively quiet beach with fine white sand.

  4. Paradiso Beach. Located in the bohemian town of Tulum is one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. On a trip to Tulum’s Mayan ruins, be sure to stop by Paradiso Beach to enjoy its brilliant turquoise water, soft white sand and tranquil waves.

  5. Xpu-Ha. If it’s solitude you seek, be sure to visit the Xpu-Ha beach in the Riviera Maya. Located just 15 or 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, this beach typifies the ultimate remote, tropical paradise. Its calm, shallow waters are perfect for a day spent kayaking, swimming or just lying under the sun.

  6. Puerto Morelos. Halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, you’ll find the small fishing and residential village of Puerto Morelos. The town’s quiet white sand beaches are set inside an offshore reef, creating calm waves for swimmers and snorkelers to enjoy.

  7. Punto Bete/ Xcalacoco. Travel just north of Playa del Carmen for yet another isolated beach. Its white sand, swaying palm trees, rustic beachfront housing, and breathtaking views are definitively worth the visit.

Mexico: A Country with an Economy that Continues to Grow

 

Mexico economy Green Economic Growth

For those of you worried about Mexico’s state of the market and the economic slowdown between 2009 and 2012 as a result of the international financial crisis, I have some good news for you. The forecast for Mexico’s economy not only looks promising, it looks great. Since mid-2012, Mexico has been thriving on an international level, particularly in the Riviera Maya.

International companies as well as the Mexican government continue to invest massively in Mexico. The country has shown real determination in laying the foundations to cooperate with private institutions. These international companies as well as financial institutions include mutual funds, insurance companies, pension funds, foundations and sovereign funds. The aim? To foster strategic areas for economic growth and social development. Mexico has conducted studies, amendments, and regulations to the laws in order to accommodate the changes in this growing market. As a result Mexico overtook Brazil as the Latin American country receiving the most foreign investment capital.

 

Mexico economy flagMexico is one of the world’s most attractive countries to investors right now.

Because Mexico’s reputation as a hotspot for tourism continues to grow internationally, the government has decided to spend billions of public and private investment dollars on massive infrastructure spending programs. The extensive plans focus on upgrading roads, ports, telecommunications, water and energy facilities to sustain the country’s growth in tourism and travel.

The country also plans to invest in airport infrastructure, theme parks, marinas, golf courses, healthcare facilities and retirement communities. In total, the program will include 27 major tourist destinations spread across 17 Mexican states. These projects will create more than 100,000 new jobs and will further support domestic tourism by giving more citizens higher incomes as a result.

The Riviera Maya is a prime example of Mexico’s success in development and investments in Tourism. Over the years the Yucatan Peninsula has seen the number of tourists increase exponentially. In light of its international appeal and the high number of flights coming into the Cancun airport, it’s become a hotspot worldwide. An average of 4 million visitors per year choose the Riviera Maya as their holiday destination. The wind of economic optimism continues to blow over Mexico and has settled over the Riviera Maya. In the last 4 years, the area has become a great place to buy, especially for foreigners.

New project developments, remodeled homes, occupancies in hotels and rental condos are constantly on the rise. The market in Mexico couldn’t be in better shape. If you’re interested in buying in the Riviera Maya, there has never been a better time than now!
