A ruling in mid-May from Mexico’s Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN) has put a halt on development planned for Tulum’s Archeological Zone and National Park.  The halt, however, is not expected to affect key Tulum real estate developments outside of this area.

A ruling in mid-May from Mexico’s Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN) has put a halt on development planned for Tulum’s Archeological Zone and National Park.  The halt, however, is not expected to affect key Tulum real estate developments outside of this area.

The ruling stated that national parks in Mexico are under the regime, protection and exclusive federal control, although there may be coordination with state and municipal administration.  The specific outcome of the ruling is that the Supreme Court also unanimously overturned Tulum’s Urban Development Program Center Tulum Population 2006-2030 (PDDU), which had been approved by the municipal council.  The PDDU had changed the status of the land within the archaeological site of Tulum and the Tulum National Park in order to allow for construction and tourism development.

The good news is that most development in Tulum is not affected.  One major development of Mexico land for sale, Aldea Zama has officially stated in its newsletter that the decision applies solely to the land within the park.  Aldea Zama, like several other high-quality developments in Tulum, is located between the town center and the beachfront, outside of the park area.

Aldea Zama is a modern development, offering the best of road design, underground infrastructure and a trendy, upscale village center area.  The lots for sale in the development offer retirees and other buyers an excellent balance of nature, relaxation, rustic atmosphere and modern convenience.  It is good news for real estate buyers in Tulum that Aldea Zama is expected not to be affected by the court’s decision.

In evaluating the case of the National Park in Tulum, Mexico’s Supreme Court determined that it is the exclusive power of the Federal Government to regulate and protect national parks.  The court voted on a constitutional dispute between the Federal Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) and Tulum’s Municipal PDDU.

However, the court also considered that while the Federation has control over these areas, they can be coordinated with local authorities for their management, because it is not an exclusive authority; the Constitution also gives states and municipalities a say in negotiating these areas.

This part of the decision opens the door for negotiation between Tulum’s Municipal government and Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, offering more possibilities to create an Urban Development Plan for Tulum, acceptable to all parties involved.

The National Park in Tulum and the Tulum Archaeological Zone have been protected federal parkland since April 23, 1981.
