TACA airlines, which can boast 78 years in the industry and a presence in 42 destinations in 22 countries worldwide, is using the new Airbus 320 with a capacity for 150 passengers, and expect to transport three thousand 500 tourists per month toward the Mexican Caribbean, representing 70 percent of Central American tourism and 30 percent of South America.
In addition to bring further visitors to Cancun, which in turn will continue to strengthen Cancun's vibrant tourism economy, the new airline also represents the benefit for Cancun Real Estate buyers of having continually expanded options of travelling to other countries with the convenience of easy, direct flights from Cancun.
Concerning the Convention Center, "Cancun Messe," which will be the largest trade fair in Latin America, built with an investment of nearly $ 100 million dollars, will enable Cancun to become "Mexico's first window to the world." The location of the new fair will allow business visitors to have access to the hotel and airport infrastructure, helping to attract a substantial number of international buyers.
Currently, one exhibition has already been planned for March 2010 - the Latin American Food Show 2010, which will take place in the first stage of the compound comprising 25 thousand square meters; this stage will be completed with initial investment of 30 million dollars.

The funding comes from U.S. sources with Mexican partners and "Cancun Messe" will be operated by Latin American Fairs.
The beginning of Cancun Messe's hosting of international events points to the beginning of Cancun's expansion into a center for international business growth. With 'Cancun Messe' international flights will increase, and with the recent expansion of its airport will be able to attract 28 million visitors annually to Cancun area, which undoubtedly will be an opportunity to move in the world of international business and real estate.
