This Destination Is Set to Explode…

I’m a few days into my scouting trip to Puerto Escondido, a stunning beach town on Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Already I’ve seen enough to know what will happen next here…

This destination is set to explode.

Touring the beaches around Puerto Escondido, I was blown away by what I found. The coast here is beautiful, unspoiled, majestic. I had one of my top five scouting days in my more than 20-year career as an international real estate investor and scout.

I recorded a video to show you…

Money is pouring into Oaxaca state, where Puerto Escondido and Huatulco—the other destination I’m scouting here—are located.

A major Path of Progress is moving along this coast. (A Path of Progress is anything that makes a place easier to get to or more desirable, like a new road or 5-star resort.)

Last year, the government committed $4.6 billion to new infrastructure in Oaxaca state.

Thousands of miles of new roads and highways are in the works. And the international airport at Puerto Escondido is being expanded and remodeled to serve an expected surge in visitors. The new facilities are scheduled to open this summer. Plans for the airport are to quadruple passenger numbers in the next few years.

Work is continuing on a new international terminal for Puerto Escondido airport. It’s a sign of the Path of Progress that’s set to transform this area…

Those ambitions are big…the plans, impressive.

Of course, lots of destinations have big ambitions that don’t work out. This is why I put boots on the ground…

Only by meeting with local contacts…driving the roads and highways…seeing the beaches and the towns for yourself…and putting your toes in the sand…can you get a sense of how truly desirable a place is. And how achievable the progress is.

I’m calling it on Puerto Escondido. As I say, this place is set to boom.

I can’t remember the last time I came to a place this beautiful and had lunch at a palapa overlooking beaches this spectacular.

All across Mexico’s Pacific and Caribbean coasts, frontline real estate on beaches this beautiful and accessible has been taken over by resorts, hotels, high-end communities, top-class restaurants. But this coast has been overlooked.

To find palapas with plastic chairs on beaches like this is incredible. This is a rare find.

Plus, these beaches are on the edge of the vibrant town of Puerto Escondido. And the state of Oaxaca has one of the world’s great food cultures.

Here’s another very short clip I recorded of the beaches here…

The beaches along this stretch of coast are truly breathtaking…they feel unspoiled and undiscovered.

I’m here looking at land and projects, and meeting with developers and local contacts. My goal here is to assess whether there’s a deal to be done for members of my Real Estate Trend Alert group.

This is how RETA members get ahead…

We find destinations like this on the cusp of a major transformation and we use our group-buying power to negotiate an exclusive, off-market deal with a best-in-class developer, at prices that ordinary investors never see.

My Real Estate Trend Alert group was ahead like this in Cabo, Portugal, Spain, Costa Rica, Panama, on the Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. And we’ve seen huge gains as a result…

  • Uplift of $388,844 in Cabo—Our first RETA deal in Cabo was in 2015 in the 5-star Quivira resort. Our RETA-only price on a two-bed, two-bath ocean-view condo in the best-in-class Copala community was $336,156. I bought one alongside RETA members. An identical condo to mine two floors above me later listed for $725,000. That’s $388,844 more.
  • $309,018 More in Playa del Carmen—In 2021, RETA members had the chance to buy two-bed condos from $265,304 in a community called Singular Dream in the city of Playa del Carmen, along Mexico’s Caribbean coast. In early 2024, a two-bed condo in Singular Dream was listing for $574,322.
  • $234,900 Uplift in Tulum—I brought RETA members a deal in the chic beach destination of Tulum, also along Mexico’s Caribbean coast, in 2019. Members could own two-bed condos in a community called Gran Tulum from just $175,000. The last time I talked to the developer, they said two-bed condos there were listing at retail for $409,900.

Is there a deal to be done in Puerto Escondido? A lot has to happen before we reach that point. But the potential is there.

Next up, I’m scouting the coast of Huatulco. After Puerto Escondido, it has a lot to live up too.
