Playa Mundo Maya, Beach Holiday Destination Underway in Campeche Coast
Merida, Mexico, July 23, 2019 --( Isla Aguada has the most attractive white sandy beach in the State of Campeche and this area is set to be the new tourism hot spot: Playa Mundo Maya.

An upcoming eco-hotel zone is planned to be developed in the 12 km-long beach to the north of Isla Aguada. To boost development, in June 2019, The Global Property Service Group, the biggest landowner in the area, was authorized to build the first eco-hotel resort and marine life observatory. Several projects will be following. Eco-bungalow hotels, spas, retreats and luxury eco-resorts will be built during the coming years. Both the government and the GPS-Group aim to transform the island into the most attractive sustainable tourist destination in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The eco-hotel zone will be a huge benefit to local people as the land price is expected to increase and residents are opening their businesses to serve all the visiting tourists. Local people can run every type of business to respond to the growing market’s demand. They will feel delighted with more job opportunities which ultimately raise their standard of living.

Investors have turned their attention to Playa Mundo Maya, as, at the moment, the land price on the island is much lower compared to the other beach areas in Yucatan Peninsula, where the huge demand from international hotel companies has been pushing prices much higher in recent years. Regarding the local real estate company: Campeche Realty, the average oceanfront linear meter price on Isla Aguada beach now is $35,000 USD to $55,000 USD per linear meter compared to over $190,000 USD per linear meter along the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo coastline. Furthermore, the beaches of Isla Aguada are some of the finest in the region. Playa Mundo Maya has a unique original white sandy beach in Campeche state. The water is relatively shallow, which makes the coastline appear turquoise.

For many hotel owners who have faced last year's nasty seaweed problem in the Mexican Caribbean coastline, Playa Mundo Maya presents a natural choice to build their second eco-hotel as the millions of tons of seaweed have been piling up in Cancun, Riviera Maya and nearby beaches in Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Holbox.

The Playa Mundo Maya is located on another side of the Yucatan Peninsula on the safe side of the Mexican Gulf, which is away from the sargassum path and the high-risk of the hurricane impact.

The new Mayan Train railway (Tren Maya) is expected to bring 3 million tourists to the area. The $6.5 billion rail project would link towns, cities and tourist attractions in five southern states. It is expected to transport 8,000 passengers per day. The train project will trigger real estate investment of at least 150 billion pesos (US $7.9 billion), according to the chief of the National Tourism Promotion Fund (Fonatur). The government says that the construction and operation of the Mayan Train will generate employment and economic prosperity in the whole southeast of Mexico.

Isla Aguada and the state of Campeche have all the same ingredients for success as Playa Del Carmen or Cancun had 20 or 30 years ago, including pristine beaches and lagoon, Mayan ruins, and world-class fishing to name a few.
