Last Friday a group of members of AMPI Playa del Carmen (Mexico’s NAR) received around 70 realtors from Texas which turned out to be a really nice and productive morning. The trade mission which was lead by TAR’s President Shad Bogany and Bill Gottfried, Director of TAR’s International Comittee was qualified as a very important step to continue the business relations between Americans’ investors and Playa del Carmen’s real estate industry. 70% of the investment in the Riviera Maya comes from foreigners, Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya is one of the top destinations for retirement and many people in Texas have considered this area as the place to buy their vacation home and plan their retirement. The event took place in Cozumel and it is the second of many planned activities between members of AMPI and TAR. Diego Garcia, broker owner for Moskito Real Estate and member of AMPI’s Board and NAR described it as a very interesting way to share with realtors in Texas the different opportunities and advantages of investing in the Playa del Carmen real estate and Riviera Maya real estate.
Mexico is well known for considering children the center of attention, we love their laughter and are in a mission to accomplish this, of course it is not hard with the largest sand bank and natural playground in all of Mexico
The Mesoamerican reef protects our shores making our beaches as calm as swimming pools, lots of “cenotes” natural sinkholes offer their adventurous and fearless imagination a real life movie experience, zip lines, sky cycles, the most colorful variety of fish, boats, canoes and hammocks, even an avatar ride a fast roller coaster type zip line unique to this area.
Staying at a nice house or condominium gives your family the opportunity to explore the culture and add to your memory collection incredible mind prints, with a turquoise blue background, and the most enjoyable sounds of laughter, all possible and easy to achieve here.
