The project pipelines for some of the sunniest locations in the Western Hemisphere are booming, as Mexico and the Caribbean enjoy a surge of investments in the hospitality industry.
Mexico, which ranks among the ten most popular countries for tourists in the entire world, currently has a grand total of 77 projects in its pipeline, while the Caribbean region has a total of 91, according to numbers from the TOPHOTELPROJECTS database. This includes properties that are currently under construction or in the planning, vision, pre-planning, or pre-opening phases. The grand total of rooms in the pipeline is more than 17,000, which means that the two regions combined are demonstrating a 24.4 percent increase year-to-year, at least based on the number of coming rooms. However, it remains to be seen what effect, if any, the sizeable hurricanes and earthquakes that have recently beset both regions will have on the booming project pipeline.
Whatever the effect, it’s likely safe to assume that it won’t be long before tourists return to the world class beaches found in countries like Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. With that in mind, let’s take a look at five projects that will soon be making their debuts in the region.
Pageant Beach Hotel – Cayman Islands
