Aldea Zama: The New Heart of Tulum Starts to Beat

11 January, 2015

Aldea Zama offers buyers a unique opportunity to own affordable luxury in Tulum, one of the fastest growing towns in the world.

‘Zama’ (meaning ‘dawn’ or ‘sunrise’) is the ancient Mayan name for the nearby archaeological ruins, so titled as a result of its easterly facing location affording it a spectacular view of the rising sun every morning. The name is apt for this new development which, as it nears completion, promises to become the new heart of Tulum, providing the town with a new dawn.

Tulum has long been a favourite of holidaymakers seeking to combine relaxation with culture. The beaches of the region are regularly featured in travel magazines and the international press as being some of the best in the world and the Mesoamerican coral reef lies within 200 metres of the shore, all of which provides an outstanding backdrop to the nearby Mayan ruins – the most visited Mayan ruins in the world.

The complex itself covers 80 hectares (200 acres) and is positioned between the quaint and quiet Tulum centre, complete with its traditional Mexican eateries and multiple handmade arts and crafts stores, and the aforementioned pristine Caribbean beaches.

Everything inside the complex is designed with both ease of use and the surrounding environment in mind. The colours of the roads and the pathways are sand coloured, and constructions are limited to three floors, well below the existing tree-line. In keeping with the existing eco-friendly culture of Tulum, the entire development features wide bicycle lanes, including one that runs all the way down to the nearby beaches. The new commercial district is designed around a pedestrian high street and is set to house luxury fashion stores alongside high-end restaurants, thus giving residents the chance to experience the amenities of home without the stresses of big-city living.

Now the framework has been completed, the developers are starting to arrive. Demand for units is high, indeed the first development, Zama Village (by Kaua Group),was completed last year and sold out in a matter of weeks. Since then the same developer has repeated this success with the similarly designed Zama Gardens and Real Zama. Typical prices in these condos ranged between $160,000 and $240,000. The latest development, named Prana, is being built by Simca (from Playa del Carmen) and there are 32 units available starting at $200,000. 

From an investment standpoint, buyers will own property in one of the fastest growing cities in the world, and will be well positioned to make a good return on investment in the coming years. The growth is being fuelled by the construction of a new international airport 20km inland. The airport promises to bring further investment to the area and will improve the potential market size for owners who plan to purchase on a buy-to-let basis.

If you are looking to own property in one of the most idyllic locations on earth, you need to look no further than Aldea Zama and Tulum.
