1. Can you build on the beach?
Yes. The Property faces the sea and has a sand dune area of approximately 80 meters wide where you can build. Normally people build beach clubs, residences and/or high price level rooms.
2. Does the property have mangroves?
As all land in the area, the Property has a 300 meter part of mangrove just back from the beach-side dune. According to Mexican laws, mangroves are protected and no building is allowed to affect them. In fact high standard hotels preserve mangroves as a great attrac- tion for its tropical flora and fauna.
3. What kind of sand does the beach have?
The sand is bright white, which contrasts with the turquoise sea. It is very soft and smooth and has a unique feature: it is not heated by the sun, allowing you to walk barefoot on it without any protection.
4. Can you build a pier to allow boats to dock?
Yes. You can build a pier previously managing a permit at the local Government Office.
5. Is there any way to access by car from the entrance of the Property to the beach?
Yes. The Property has a former built-in rustic road connecting the entrance of the Property to the beach, and it can be accessed with suitable vehicles. Its path even crosses through the mangroves and has got legal rights, so once improved and rebuilt it can be used as the axis of future developments in the Property.
6. What is the average weather in the area?
Weather in Riviera Maya is warm and mild all year long. It has the inherent moisture of the tropics, but the cool sea breeze makes the climate milder and not overly warm. The aver- age annual temperature is 77.9o F (25.5o C).
7. How safe is Riviera Maya?
“A couple of months ago I was on the Mexican Caribbean Coast (Riviera Maya, Cancun,
Cozumel) and all the region was packed with tourists, everyone made a normal life and nobody needed to be escorted by bodyguards to go to the beach or partying out at night. Statistics can say what they want. I can tell you what I’ve seen myself. So when someone asks me: ‘Is Mexico a safe place for a tourist?’ I tell them: ‘Yes, it’s as safe as you and your common sense want to.” (Source: Paco Nadal’s Blog, travel and tourism writer in El Pais journal since 1992)
