Playa Del Carmen Real Estate – Sustainability and Variety
One of the main growing attractions for North Americans buying Playa del Carmen real estate recently has been the increasing emphasis the area is placing respect for the environment and sustainability. This trend has been gaining momentum in both the tourism and real estate industries.
One prime example of sustainability in the tourism industry has been the nearby eco-park named Xel-ha. This park is the first natural park in the world to receive the Green Globe Sustainable Tourism certification, granted by Earth Australia Check, and has become the first company in Quintana Roo to report its “carbon footprint” generated, meaning that the park is showing a public and transparent commitment in the fight against climate change. The park is said to exceed most international environmental standards.
This same trend is becoming more apparent in the Playa del Carmen real estate industry. Mexico’s professional association for real estate agents (AMPI) has recently taken on a green approach, defined by its “Green AMPI” program. In the nearby town of Tulum the upcoming real estate development and investment forum, sponsored by AMPI, is focusing on sustainability. The forum for Playa del Carmen is focusing on diversifying the area’s economy, while still maintaining green focus; one idea is to build a recycling plant.
Playa del Carmen properties also provide an opportunity to participate in this growing movement. Many developers are now including sustainable principles in their design, such as energy efficiency and resource management (sustainable water treatment), and many new developments are preserving natural vegetation, integrating it into the over all design.
Condos and homes can most certainly be found in sustainable developments. Playa del Carmen land is also available in nearby areas, with green-focused developments, leaving a large amount of the original trees standing, and again specifying construction which brings minimal disturbance to the environment.
Regardless of your angle on environmental responsibility, Playa del Carmen offers suitable properties.
