The Mayan Riviera runs 72 miles (116 km) along the Caribbean coastline from just south of Cancun, through Playa del Carmen to Tulum. It is located in the state of Quintana Roo in eastern Mexico and is the only Caribbean coastline in Mexico which means, unlike West Coast destinations, the Riviera Maya has warm, clear, turquoise waters all year round! That Conde Naste Magazine has recently named the Mayan Riviera as having the most beautiful beaches in the world? Recall any of those enticing Corona commercials set on absolutely stunning beaches? They are shot right here on location in the Riviera Maya which is quickly becoming a secret hideaway for many celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Leonardo Dicaprio, Drew Barrymore, Fergie, Mick Jagger and others in the know.

Most locals speak English and American brands and comforts are everywhere. 8. Secret vacation hide-away for celebrities like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Tom Cruise. 9. Forever warm (80F/29C) and forever green (lush tropical environment). 10. A hop, skip and jump from your nearest airport.
That Playa Del Carmen, the center of the Riviera Maya, has one of the most diverse cultures of any beach area in the world? Although it has been written up in the NY and LA Times, many people aren't aware of everything Playa del Carmen offers. For example, there are 190 flights a day and people from 47 countries live here...Americans, Italians, Canadians, Argentinians, Spanish, British, Swiss, Germans, French, etc. No other area in Mexico or perhaps the world has such diversity and culture! Picture a beautiful, boutique European village sitting by the sea... that is Playa Del Carmen. The Riviera Maya is an ideal balance of Mexican, American, European and ancient Mayan culture, with all the conveniences and products North Americans are used to from back home. English is commonly spoken here and American Brands and Comforts are everywhere? You'll find Sam's Club, Walmart, Starbucks, and Blockbuster here, as well as movie theaters that are state of the art. They show the exact same movies that are out in the states in English (by the way, most people here do speak English). The physicians here are English speaking, American trained and educated, and the hospitals are new and state of the art. That the Mayan Riviera has some of the best Gourmet restaurants and Couture shopping in the World? The restaurants in the Riviera Maya have been written up in Gourmet Magazine and offer fabulous French, Thai, Mayan, Italian, Argentinian, Brazilian cuisines and some of the freshest Sushi found anywhere, but you can also still find an awesome homemade taco or burrito as well. The Riviera Maya has some of the best shopping in the world with famous brands like Coach, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Cartier. The nightlife here is equally amazing with major performers like Elton Johnperforming at the Mayan ruins, Chichen Itza, (one of the 8 wonders of the world). That Playa Del Carmen is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, yet the real estate prices in the Mayan Riviera are less than half the cost of West Coast properties like Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta? The Riviera Maya is NOT participating in the global recession nor is there a mortgage crisis going on here. There is something more like a modern day land rush and real estate boom currently taking place down here from Cancun, to Playa Del Carmen all the way down to Tulum. Real estate values in the Riviera Maya have doubled and tripled in the last five years yet remain half the cost of similar West Coast properties that one would find in Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. If it was in the U.S., Cancun would already be the 5th largest city after Houston with a population of 1.6 million in the city limits alone. It now has the busiest airport in all of Mexico and Playa Del Carmen is growing even faster. In 2006, the Guiness Book of World Records named Playa Del Carmen as the fastest growing city in the world. With 250,000 residents, Playa Del Carmen is now outpacing Cancun's growth and already boasts more hotel rooms than Cancun (40,000+ vs. 39,000). That some of the largest institutional investors in the world are betting on the growth of the Riviera Maya? The two largest Spanish Banks in the World (Bancaja and Banco de Valencia) and Spain largest private development company (OHL) have recently invested over $3 billion in Playa del Carmen along with huge investments by the Ritz Carlton, Starwood Properties, W Hotels, Hyatt, Mandarin Hotel Group, and Donald Trump Properties and many others. That the Riviera Maya is getting a new International Airport in Tulum in 2012? The $544 million Riviera Maya / Tulum International Airport is projected to open sometime in late 2012 and will service over one million new travelers in the very first year alone. As soon as the first pick axe goes into the ground for the new airport construction, the real estate values in the Riviera Maya will instantly increase. The time to take advantage of the Riviera Maya real estate opportunity is now! What is the best kept real estate secret of the Mayan Riviera and its crown jewel? Approximately one hour south of Cancun, 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, lies what the LA Times called "A Technicolor Dream", Conde Naste Magazine proclaimed to be the "World's Best Beach" and what the Mayan kings simply named Tulum, meaning the "City of Dawn". Tulum is the only Mayan city built on the Caribbean Sea, a world class archeological and environmental park, and periodically protected by the famous Green Peace Ship, Moby Dick. It is simply a one of a kind, international treasure. Although Tulum real estate is protected from high density growth forever, Tulum is actually growing faster now than Playa del Carmen did 10 years ago and faster than Cancun did 20 years ago. Land in Tulum is relatively inexpensive now but values are increasing rapidly. Investors around the world are quickly finding out about Tulum and once the construction of the new international airport begins in 2011, land values will explode and investors will take large profits.
