Real estate investors are turning toward the breathtaking beauty of Mexico and are opting to invest in the Mexican real estate sector for the many advantages it delivers.

Some investors buy a property for their own retirement, while others prefer to purchase a second home to enjoy vacations, and there are still others who see their investment as a rental property for the tourists who visit these remarkable beach destinations on the coasts. Real estate in Mexico is undeniably profitable, especially if you know how to choose the best investment locations.

The four investment destinations that we recommend below are excellent options, delivering a valued ROI since each one is in the heart of a highly developed tourist destination. Their residents enjoy an elevated quality of life with nearby airports, highways, and all the services needed to live comfortably.


Best Real Estate Cancun and Riviera Maya | Tao Mexico


Destination: The Riviera Maya

First on our list is the Riviera Maya since it is the number one tourist destination in Mexico. The Riviera Maya has become the best place for investors to buy properties in the country. The return on investment in this area is the highest in Mexico.

This charming region is located on the Caribbean coast. It’s overflowing with Mayan culture and heritage with the unparalleled natural beauty of the underground rivers, cenotes, mangroves, jungles, nature reserves and its breathtaking white sand beaches and turquoise waters.

Destinations in the Riviera Maya such as Tulum, Akumal, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras, are experiencing unprecedented increases in development and infrastructure. For this and more, they’re ideal Mexican locations for those seeking a getaway in paradise that is quiet, but without neglecting the comforts and luxuries of the good life.

Best Real Estate Los Cabos | Tao Mexico


Destination: Los Cabos - Baja California 

With world-class golf courses, luxurious resorts, untouched beaches and a spectacular coastline, Los Cabos is one of the favored beach and golf destinations in all of Mexico.

Los Cabos is a popular travel destination for people from the West Coast of the US. Numerous Hollywood celebrities have fallen in love with Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo for all its charm. It’s a great destination to live - with a solid infrastructure, a great housing market, international cuisine and friendly locals. It’s the perfect place to buy luxury real estate in Mexico either for retirement or for a vacation rental.

Best Real Estate in Puerto Vallara | Tao Mexico

Destination: Puerto Vallarta

The appeal of Puerto Vallarta lies in the charming combination of a typical Mexican atmosphere with a world-class gastronomic offer alongside long stretches of golden sand beaches.

Downtown Vallarta is known for its colonial-style architecture and cobblestone streets lined with boutiques, art galleries, and renowned restaurants with gourmet chefs. 

It has received several international awards such as, "The friendliest city in the world", "The best gourmet destination", "The best place to retire", and "The best vacation destination in Mexico" -- awarded by renowned international publications and magazines such as Condé Nast, Food & Travel and USNews.com. 

In Vallarta, you’ll find charming properties overlooking the third largest bay in the world, the Bay of Banderas, all encompassed by the towering green mountains of the Sierra Madre.

Real Estate La Paz Baja California Los Cabos | Toa Mexico

Destination: La Paz

La Paz is located two hours from Los Cabos along an unforgettable scenic route. Although its name is not so well known, you’ve surely seen its beaches in a list of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

La Paz is the capital city of the state of Baja California Sur. It’s a prime real estate location where residents enjoy a comfortable, relaxed lifestyle. The calm, crystalline beaches are spectacular and locals enjoy a variety of sea-faring activities to pass the time.

The cost of properties here is lower than those in Los Cabos. La Paz still has a low profile, and is lesser known among real estate investors, so now is an excellent time to buy a retirement or vacation home.
