Cozumel Living Supports Beach Clean-up efforts

The April Trashy Little Event cleaned 20 Bags of trash off the beach near Chen Rio on Cozumel's eastern shore. This breathtaking stretch of sand beach is a prime nesting area for the majestic sea turtle. Now, and through the summer months, the mature turtles will be returning to the very beach they were born to lay their eggs in the clean sands we helped prepare at Chen Rio. Mainly home to the Loggerhead and Hawksbill species, it is interesting to note that of the 8 species of sea turtles in the world, 4 of them make the nests here in Cozumel*. Last year's sanctuary officials recorded almost 4000 nests in Cozumel. Sadly, there are many stretches of beach that need more and better attention. If you'd like to lend a hand we invite you to follow the Trashy Little Group - please join us! on facebook. We'd like to see a great turnout for May. Please come join us, make new friends, and help keep Cozumel beautiful for future generations of visitors - both on land and underwater.

The Bag Counter for 2011 rose to 246 bags collected as of the April event! Our next event is May 15th, when we plan on meeting just north of the Rasta Bar which is located on the eastern shore at the southern end. We'll be there around 9:30am, and finish up at approximately 11 am. Then its back into town for brunch at La Cocay! They are now open for breakfast and the selections are fantastic! Gary and Kathy will indulge the group if we are a bit behind, but please try to get there by 12:00pm. It promises to be a great morning - please join us and have fun getting "Trashy" for a good cause.

We welcome new members! Find the Trashy Little Group - please join us! on facebook and join in the fun!

Mexico Real Estate Cozumel Receives New Promenade

One of the key factors benefiting Mexico real estate has been investment into tourist-oriented improvements, which likewise offer an improved lifestyle and more attractive buying options to those considering making Mexico their home. This point has recently been demonstrated by the investment put into creating the new pedestrian walkway area on the north shores of Cozumel.

During recent years, the north of Cozumel has been developing as a favorite for Mexico beach front for sale by expat buyers.

The benefits from investments such as this include helping to improve the image of the island, bringing more tourists that will enjoy the island, and more investment will continue to bring increased services, new activities, and, in general, a higher quality of life.

On the other hand, the new pedestrian area will also improve the lifestyle of this district of Cozumel. Those buying north beachfront real estate will enjoy the pleasant relaxation of an outdoor lifestyle that is modern and comfortable.

The project is part of a larger series of tourism investments throughout the state Quintana Roo. Cancun is the main market within the state that receives the most international tourism within Mexico, They benefit from a good deal of investment from all levels of government.

The entire region, including other locations such as Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and the newer Costa Maya area further to the south, have proven to be one of the greatest success stories in international tourism. A combination of government investment, working in coordination with very strong private initiatives have led the area to become the top area for international tourism in North and South America. The area is also expected to lead the way as Mexico heads towards becoming one of the top 5 countries world-wide for international tourism.

In all areas of this state, real estate buyers from Canada and the United States have benefited from these investments, gaining everything from upscale shopping and dining to areas, such as Playa del Carmen’s Fifth Avenue, to golf courses and new highway bridges

Five safest places in Mexico for travelers

by: Christine Delsol

The last Mexico Mix column looked at why Mexico's drug-related violence has recently spilled into tourist destinations. This time, we'll look at why that shouldn't stop you from traveling to Mexico.

No, we're not recommending a holiday in beautiful downtown Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, or a romantic getaway in Tecalitlán, Jalisco. Even I admit that when I had to fly into Acapulco and drive across the city on my last trip to Mexico, I was just as happy not to be lingering there.

But it's still true that drug gangs are not targeting tourists now any more than they ever were. And even if the barrage of headlines makes it sound as if the entire country were in flames, the violence that feeds Mexico's death toll takes place primarily in just nine of 31 states — mainly along the U.S. border where the smuggling takes place and in places where marijuana and heroin are produced.

The concept hasn't changed: Stay away from the trouble spots and exhibit some common sense, and you're more likely to perish in a tequila-fueled Jet Ski mishap than at a homicidal drug trafficker's hands. What makes this concept more complicated today is that you can no longer rely on the common wisdom about sticking with established tourist destinations.

Until this year, the public had to rely on media tallies of drug-related killings or on sporadic and often confusing numbers compiled by various government agencies. In January, the Mexican government made the task easier by releasing a comprehensive official database of drug-related deaths — including gang members, police, soldiers and bystanders — each year from the beginning of Calderón's term in December 2006 through the end of 2010. In addition to the alarming numbers in those nine states — ranging from 40 (in Michoacán) to 297.5 (in Chihuahua) deaths per 100,000 people — it shows that modest homicide rates prevail in much of the country.

Outside those nine states, the total homicide rate for the four years is a more tolerable 1.1 to 29.8 per 100,000. In 2010, Mexico City's drug-related homicide rate was 2.2 per 100,000. While it is not an exact comparison, since the Mexico database tracks specifically drug-related deaths, Washington, D.C.'s homicide rate for 2009, the latest year for which the FBI's Uniform Crime Report is available, of 24 per 100,000 adds some perspective. California's rate was 5.3; the U.S. national average was 5.0.

If you're looking for the safest places in Mexico, Yucatán and Tlaxcala states had fewer than 1.5 deaths per 100,000 population for the four-year period through 2010 — comparable to Minnesota and Vermont. Puebla, Querétaro, Baja California Sur, Campeche, Veracruz, Hidalgo, Chiapas, San Luis Potosí, the Federal District (Mexico City), Tabasco, Zacatecas and Guanajuato also recorded single-digit rates.

Here's a closer look at the top five:

1) Tlaxcala (1.1 deaths per 100,000): Mexico's safest state is also its smallest, tucked just east of Mexico state like a notch in Puebla's side, with the Sierra Madre Oriental dominating its eastern boundary. It is an agricultural state with a significant tourism industry made up mainly of Mexican visitors and a smattering of history-minded German, French and Swiss travelers. Its primary attractions, barely known to U.S. tourists, are precolumbian archaeological sites such as Cacaxtla and colonial architecture in and around the capital city of Tlaxcala. The state has more than 1,000 archaeological sites, only seven of which are open to the public. It's tailor-made for travelers hankering for an authentic cultural foray safely removed from the hordes.

2) Yucatán (1.3): The land of the Maya is arguably Mexico's most beguiling state, and its safety is icing on the cake. (Drug-related deaths doubled in 2010 — from 1 to 2.) Despite being overshadowed by Cancún and the Riviera Maya in neighboring Quintana Roo, the Yucatán has a well-developed tourist infrastructure, thousands of archaeological sites, refreshing cenotes, grand haciendas, uncrowded beaches, stunning wildlife, widely varied ecotourism and unfailingly gracious people. You could visit every year for the rest of your life and never run out of things to do and see. If you're still wary of going to Mexico, think of Yucatán as a country apart — many of its residents do.

3) Puebla (1.85): It's the home of both mole poblano and chiles en nogada, the ambrosial national dish made of poblano chiles filled with spicy meat and fruit, smothered in a walnut cream sauce and topped with pomegranate seeds. What more is there to say? Well, perhaps that it is also home to the twin volcanoes Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl, site of the battle commemorated by Cinco de Mayo, home of Talavera pottery, 2,600 historic buildings, a wealth of archaeological sites, and virtually nonstop festivals originating in five distinct prehispanic cultures.

4) Querétaro (2.02): Also among Mexico's smaller states, Querétaro is one of the most geographically varied, ranging from desert to tropical rainforest. The capital, Santiago de Querétaro, was designated the "third city of New Spain" in 1531 and is a trove for history buffs. It is best-known, however, for its role in ending Spanish rule. Overshadowing such momentous events as Maximilian's execution or the signing of the Treaty of Hidalgo and Mexican Constitution, its greatest source of pride is being the place where the fathers of independence plotted to overthrow the Spanish. Ecotourism is the mainstay of the Sierra Gorda biological reserve. The state also claims three of Mexico's major wineries and maintains a Cheese and Wine Museum. San Sebastián Bernal, whose Peña de Bernal is the third-largest rock in the world, is one of Mexico's Magic Pueblos.

5) Baja California Sur (2.98): In a classic case of guilt by association, tourists have avoided the southern half of the Baja peninsula in droves because Tijuana — 900 miles away in Baja California (Norte) — was the first flash point when Calderón upset the drug cartels' equilibrium. In fact, Baja Sur has been barely touched by drug violence. If Los Cabos isn't your style, you can hightail it up to artsy Todos Santos, satisfy your urban longings in the authentic Mexican city of La Paz or repair to the East Cape, a still-rugged area favored by divers and fishermen, where active types and fans of primitive, wide open spaces will find hiking, kayaking, surfing and windsurfing, zip-lines, cave paintings and hot springs.

Mexico Real Estate News: Cozumel Marina Construction to Advance

By Thomas Luis Lloyd

The island of Cozumel, located a 45 minute boat ride off the shore about an hour south of Cancun, is currently a favorite for retirees and other expats buying Mexico real estate and living in this country. Significant news for this market within Mexico is that an important step has been taken in moving the island's new Marina toward completion.

The significant step seen in early 2011 was the signing of an agreement with representatives from the hotel InterContinental, to start with the construction of the entrance to the marina. With the new agreement, the Cozumel Marina project could move ahead at full tilt during February 2011. The project is funded by the National Fund for Tourism Development (Fonatur), and is located on the south of the island.

The construction of the new marina in Cozumel will offer a new outlet for high-quality Mexico property on the island. Mexico beachfront for sale often receives added value, and offers buyers a higher level of lifestyle due to tourism-focused infrastructure, especially large-scale projects such as this marina.

So far the Cozumel Marina has seen an investment of over 200 million pesos (about $17 million USD) and has been awaiting an agreement with the hotel in order to complete the final stage of the project.

The conclusion of this marina will mean excellent opportunities for the island in terms of investment, tourism and promotion, since it will be another attraction for the island. The marina represents the potential to attract visitors and real estate buyers with larger purchasing power, and offer events such as international sailing competitions.

The Cozumel Marina also represents the feasibility of having more hotel rooms; larger tourism numbers also means further investment into infrastructure and business, offering real estate buyers more convenience and lifestyle activities.

The marina will have a capacity of more than 300 boats, large-scale condo construction, as well as restaurants and shopping options.

The progress of the marina's construction will be a very important step forward for the island's real estate market.
