EL TEZCALAME,

 

LOCATED WITHIN THE BEAUTIFUL COSTA ALEGRE, THE MOST AMBITIOUS TOURISTIC DEVELOPMENT IN JALISCO STATE. 

 

After a delay in its progress due to the contingency of the pandemic, tourism in Costa Alegre rebounded strongly. This corridor includes more than 250 kilometers of beautiful beaches, cliffs, jungles, river mouths, estuaries, and mangroves, as well as extremely luxurious hotels such as Four Seasons and One & Only.

Soon you will be able to arrive at the Costa Alegre through the international airport of Chalacatepec. Many investors and celebrities have already set their sights on the area

The subject site is located in the municipality of Tomatlán, within the emerging Costa Alegre touristic corridor, roughly 73 kilometers (45 miles) south of Puerto Vallarta, a major resort market, and approximately 79 kilometers (49 miles) north of Costa Careyes, which is a consolidated and internationally renowned, low-density, luxury resort-residential community. This site is in the municipality of Tomatlán, Jalisco.

El Tezcalame has 451 hectares of uneven rolling hills of varied elevations and flatlands within the internal portion of the parcel, as well as sand dunes along the beach frontage. The shape of the parcel should permit efficient use of the site for building and site improvements, including ingress and egress. With easy access to Federal Highway 200 and its proximity to Puerto Vallarta, the site is well suited for a resort-residential master-planned community.

Primary regional access through the area is provided by Federal Highway 200, which extends along the Mexican Pacific Coast, providing north/south access within the Puerto Vallarta–Riviera Nayarit and Costa Alegre corridors.

On its Jalisco portion, this highway underwent extensive modernization work and was widened between El Tuito and Melaque. Furthermore, a bypass highway (“macrolibramiento”) is planned to be constructed between northern and southern Puerto Vallarta, which would shorten travel time considerably from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, located approximately 80 kilometers (50 miles) to the northeast of the subject site. It should be noted that the subject site is also located roughly 48 kilometers (30 miles) north of the site for the planned Chalacatepec Airport which, initially, is anticipated to be used primarily by private planes and, in a later phase, for commercial aviation..

Primary vehicular access to the subject site is provided by El Gargantillo off the Puerto Vallarta–Manzanillo highway (Federal Highway 200), a road leading from the highway to the town of La Cruz de Loreto. From this town, access is provided by a dirt road. The subject site is relatively simple to locate from Federal Highway 200, which is the nearest major highway. Overall, the subject site is secluded and is not visible from these thoroughfares, a desirable attribute for a resort location.

The project includes the proposed master-planned project, the subject site is comprised of three beach front hotel sites, or macrolotes, three second-row resort-residential sites, or macrolotes, and two land reserves for future development located on a back parcel across the road which divides the subject master parcel into two. A total of eight development sites were individually appraised, which combined, make up for the total value for the master plan as a whole including sites designated for amenities, and non-densifiable ecological reserves.

Location

Costa Alegre, Jalisco.

Primary regional access through the area is provided by Federal Highway 200, which extends along the Mexican Pacific Coast, crossing the states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán, Guerrero, Oaxaca, and Chiapas; the highway’s southeastern terminus is in Talismán, Chiapas, northwest of the Mexico/Guatemala border. Federal Highway 200 is the only highway that provides north/south access within the Puerto Vallarta–Riviera Nayarit and Costa Alegre corridors.

On its Nayarit portion, this highway has undergone improvements, including the relocation of a section of this thoroughfare (near La Cruz de Huanacaxtle along Bahía de Banderas) north of its location to create larger beachfront lots and facilitate travel through the North Shore region; this particular section of highway construction was completed in 2016.

East/west access is considered quite limited as the area lies on a narrow coastal plain at the foot of the Sierras Cuale and San Sebastián, parts of the Sierra Madre Occidental mountain range.

A new west/east highway from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara has been under construction since 2011, scheduled for completion in 2020; reportedly, travel time will be reduced from four hours to two-and-a-half hours. On its Jalisco portion, this highway underwent extensive modernization work and was widened between El Tuito and Melaque. Furthermore, a bypass highway (“macrolibramiento”) is planned to be constructed between northern and southern Puerto Vallarta, which would shorten travel time considerably from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and El Tuito and would have a positive impact on the development of the Costa Alegre corridor.

This infrastructure project was announced by the state and federal governments in early 2019 but has yet to be formalized. The subject market is served by a variety of additional local highways, which are illustrated on the map.
