The development project offers 1,864 villas and condos with high-end architectural design that are surrounded by an oasis of clear water lagoons and spacious green areas.

“Vacation or secondary homes in emerging markets represent a perfect investment with huge growth potential. Especially Mexico shows high demand for this asset class as the number of middle-class income households are growing. European real estate experience and know how is extremely valuable and make it easier to perform in these emerging markets and has the potential to lead to enormous returns”, says Ralph Winter, W5 Group.
