Mexico’s Riviera Maya region is projected to remain one of the nation’s strongest economies in 2019, with a 65 percent investment increase projected for this year according to the regional development and finance institute. Situated in the state of Quintana Roo, the Riviera Maya stretches south from Cancun through Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras and Tulum along Mexico’s only Caribbean coast, so this region is a natural hotspot for tourism, including a wide variety of exciting adventure and eco-travel options.
New investments for 2019 in Mexico’s Riviera Maya will aim to further modernize existing urban infrastructure and will also include a variety of new developments, health-related projects and technology centers. New cell phone towers will advance digital technology throughout the southernmost parts of the region, while a new multi-billion-peso mega mall in Cancun and several new medical facilities will also be developed.
A variety of new mega-projects are also expected to begin in the Riviera Maya this year, including the modernization of the Tulum-Bacalar Highway and two Cancun light trains that will travel from the city center and Cancun Hotel Zone, ultimately connecting with the new Riviera Maya Bullet Train. Other proposed investments for the Riviera Maya in 2019 involve the construction of a bridge over the Nichupte Lagoon in Cancun and beach recovery efforts throughout the Mexican Caribbean, including Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Cancun.
In Tulum, new investments this year will total more than 143 million pesos and 45 separate projects, including rehabbing and repaving existing streets and bicycle paths, as well as building the second stage of the Coba cycleway and adding new restrooms to select public spaces.
“We have clear and concrete objectives where the work will be applied, covering all the important areas, such as development, education, health and public services to serve the local population”, shared Mayor Victor Mas Tah.
