Playa Del Carmen, Mexico (PressExposure) July 06, 2011 -- Mexico real estate is closely tied to the success of the strength of the country's tourism; for this reason it is important that during May, 2011, tourism numbers increased to Mexico, especially from Canada, UK, Russia, France, Brazil, China, Colombia, Korea, and Australia.
Part of the increases were the strengthening of air connectivity between Mexico and abroad on international flights and increased frequency to Mexico. This also reflects a real benefit for real estate buyers who wish to travel to different parts of the world from the vacation or retirement property in Mexico
Mexico's Ministry of Tourism has also been strengthening the promotion in a variety of markets for the purpose of increasing the number of travelers as well as diversification. In addition to protecting and offering a broader base to the country's booming tourism industry, this same process - i.e. a growing interest in Mexico from a variety of countries - also helps to protect Mexico's real estate market; should one source of buyers decrease, the market will continue to be supported by interest and purchases from a variety of countries around the world.
The Government of Mexico, through the Ministry of Tourism and the Tourism Board of Mexico, has been working to diversify the supply from other nations in both industries and become less dependent on tourism solely from the United States.
In the month of May, the arrival of international travelers to Mexico by air increased from countries like Brazil at 42.4 percent, Russia at 30.5 percent, China at 24 percent, Korea at 18.5 percent , Australia, at 16.7 percent, Canada and the UK, an increase of 15.8 percent each compared to the same month last year.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that Mexico remains the most visited country by Americans; Mexico has a market share equivalent to 14.7 percent for tourism heading out of the U.S.
Companies like Virgin Atlantic, TAM, LAN, Air Europa, Air France, Aeromexico are among those which have announced new flights and increased frequencies to destinations in our Mexico. The British airline Virgin Atlantic announced that it will operate the Gatwick route to Cancun, which will be operating two flights a week. In a recent visit to Brazil, Mexico's Minister of Tourism, Gloria Guevara Manzo, Air Transport Company Mercosur (TAM)-the largest in that country, announced that starting this year it will start direct flights between Sao Paulo and the City Mexico.
Also, LAN (from Chile) confirmed that from July there will be five weekly flights between Lima and Cancun, and by October there will be seven weekly flights between these destinations. Meanwhile, the Spanish airline Air Europa will start a flight between Madrid and Mexico City this summer. This route will have four weekly flights. Air France will soon have a direct flight linking Paris to Cancun.
Not to mention, Mundo Maya, which was launched by President Felipe Calderon will strengthen tourism in the south-east of Mexico, i.e. the Yucatan Peninsula. It is estimated that in the remainder of this year and during 2012, more than 52 million tourists will visit the southeastern states of Mexico. These numbers are certainly positive news for Mexico real estate.
