Daniel Chávez Siqueiro, Director of The Mayan Palace Group, officially inaugerated the new international airport after a $30,000,000 initial investment, according to a story that appeared October 2, 2007, in the Spanish language newspaper, El Financiero.

Last Year 5,000 Vacation Homes Sold In Mexico - Up Fifty Per Cent From 2004 Sales



Last year 5,000 vacation homes were sold in Mexican beach towns, according to Softec, a business consulting firm, and the National Association of Realtors. Four thousand of the 5,000 properties sold were new construction, according to Softec.

The properties were sold in Rocky Point, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa, Loreto, Puerto Escondido and Cancun.

The combined total sales figure came to $1.5 billion, which is fifty per cent above 2004 sales, according to Softec. Non-beach area properties resulted in fewer than one per cent of total sales.

According to Eugene Towles, a partner with Softec, Mexico has the potential to sell 300,000 homes per year with a combined market value of $150 billion dollars.

Mexico has the potential to sell one quarter of all world vacation homes, but significant planning must take place first, according to Towles.

Increased globalization of the banking industry will make buying a vacation home in Mexico simply a matter of dealing with one's home bank, according to Towles.

New Fonatur Marina To Open In Two Months On Fidepaz Property in Baja Sur

Fonatur announced the opening of a new $70 million peso marina in Baja California Sur. The marina is to begin operation in August, 2006, and is part of the Mar de Cortez Project, formerly known as the "Escalera Nautica" (Nautical Ladder).

The huge construction project envisions several marinas positioned along the Baja California coast that will accomodate sailing and motor yachts cruising Mexican waters. The plan is to attract more tourists via sea by opening anchorages along the coast. The marinas will permit extended cruising into areas previously accessible only to the largest ocean going vessels.

The Mar de Cortez Project will create opportunities for small towns along the route to become new tourist meccas. According to John McCarthy, the director of Fonatur, La Paz is considered one of the favorite destinations among cruisers ultimately bound for Cabo San Lucas.

Twenty-nine marinas are to be constructed as part of the Mar de Cortez Project over the next fourteen years, said McCarthy.
