Investing in Mexico is a Safe Bet According to Forbes Magazine

Investing in Mexico is a Safe Bet According to Forbes Magazine

Investing in Mexico is a Safe Bet According to Forbes Magazine

So you want to purchase property in Mexico. You’re excited by the idea of finding the perfect bungalow in Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya but you’re also nervous. Will buying property in Mexico really be a smart investment?

You can rest assured that it will be. According to Forbes Magazine, it’s safe to invest in Mexico. With an economy that Forbes global economic specialist Sara Zervos describes as, “mostly predictable and rarely volatile”, its movement remains closely tied to that of the United States. Simply put, when the U.S. economy does well, Mexico’s follows suit. When The U.S. economy turns south, so does Mexico’s.

You can credit two main factors the Mexican economy’s overall steady and positive growth. First and foremost are it’s strong ties to the United States. NAFTA has been a big financial boon for Mexico, with many manufacturing jobs moving south of the border. The country has benefitted even more from the technology transfer in recent years and has increased the skills of its workforce to keep up. According to Zervos, Mexican policymakers have also succeeded in, “implementing conservative fiscal policy and prudent monetary policy” further contributing to Mexico’s healthy economy. As a result, the country has survived a number of global crisis as well as changes in presidential leadership.

Because of these two factors, Mexico has experienced 2-4% annual growth over the last 10 years, excluding the Great Financial Crisis. Their stock market has also fared well since 2012 “growing around 22% in local currency terms”, mirroring the growth of the U.S. stock market rather than other South American countries, such as Brazil or Chile.

So with this positive economic growth combined with an all time record low inflation, Mexico appears to be one of the safest countries in Latin America to invest in, particularly in the real estate market. And the situation is unlikely to change anytime soon. Even with the unpredictable U.S. election in November and the Mexican presidential election coming in 2018, Zervos predicts, “economic indicators are expected to remain broadly unchanged, and unlikely to present any significant deviations in current trends.”

As you can see, if there ever was a good time to capitalize on your dream to own a home in Mexico, it’s now. And we here at Living Riviera Maya Real Estate can help. We’ll walk you through the process so you can rest assured your purchase is secure. Don’t hesitate to contact us today with any questions.

Tourism in Mexico Rising at Record Rates

The last two years have been good ones for tourism in Mexico as the industry has experienced record growth. According to the Tourism Board of Mexico, in the first quarter of 2016 alone, tourism in Mexico has seen an increase of 9.9 percent. This rate is currently higher than any other place in the world.


Businesswoman drawing a rising arrow, representing business growth

The agency has stated that of all Mexican beach destinations, Cancun is the most popular with 1.38 million tourists already this year. The Riviera Maya comes in second with 1.3 visitors.


And it’s no surprise that this booming industry is responsible for much of the country’s annual GDP. Figures released by the Ministry of Tourism back in 2014 credit 8.7 percent of Mexico’s GDP to tourism, employing 3.6 million people directly. Now the fourth biggest source of foreign revenue, the Minister of Tourism predicts that tourism will jump to third place by 2018.


Even with the growing number of condos, hotels and resorts that keep popping up around the country, hotel occupancy rates have also hit record highs so far this year. As reported by the Mexico News Daily, from January to March hotel occupancy rates in Mexico’s 70 principal tourist destinations reached an average of 59.42 percent. This figure beat the previous record set last year of 57.8 percent. In 2015, Cancun set its own record of 82 percent hotel occupancy rate for the year.


So what can we credit this incredible boom for the tourism industry currently taking place in Mexico?

Playacar-living in Playa del Carmen

A few factors really. Cost, safety and ease of travel all make Mexico an attractive destination for many tourists, particularly from North America. More Canadian travelers are also heading down to Cancun and Playa del Carmen than ever before. The Secretariat of Communication and Transportation reported an increase of 20 percent of Canadians to the Cancun International Airport so far this year. That amounts to 315,000 Canadian tourists from January to April. Compare that to the 254,000 who visited Mexico in the first quarter of 2014, just two years ago.


And then you have the bonus of the current rate of exchange. In 2016, the peso dropped considerably against the US dollar. This tropical paradise has never been more affordable to North American travelers.


The unparalleled rise of the tourism industry has provided a number of tangible benefits for the country, especially in the Mexican Caribbean area. More and more vacation rentals have become available in both Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You also see improved infrastructure as a result of this escalation in tourism as well as the construction of more condos, hotels and resorts in the region.


The area just keeps growing and for now, there is no end in sight. According to Market Watch:


“In 2007, the Guinness Book of World Records named Playa del Carmen the fastest-growing city in Latin America. Now in 2015, Playa is continuing on that trend.”


So what are you waiting for? Come see for yourself all this country has to offer. And if you’re interested in purchasing your own property in the Riviera Maya, we at Living Riviera Maya can help. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can walk you through the process of buying making it stress-free and more enjoyable than you ever imagined.
