Mexico is rated one of the best countries for investment opportunities in real estate growth as well as one of the safest for real estate investments (secured under recent changes in Mexican law). Foreigners can own coastline land with Trusts held by Mexican banks. Just like in the United States the owner is the beneficiary of the Trust, administers the Trust and therefore controls the property. He or she may transfer ownership, lease or improve the property at will.
Foreign owners may also enjoy capital gains on sold property and can also instruct the Trust to pass on the property to future generations without the cost of inheritance tax.
