Mazatlan, Sinaloa .- The new vertical real estate developments that are being built in Gaviotas, El Dorado and Ferrocarrilera subdivisions will operate under the Airbnb scheme, a vacation rental system.

He commented that in international destinations it does not affect the over-demand they have, but in a destination where it is barely repositioning itself, under the uncertainty of the tourism sector, where there is zero federal support, where many investors are already holding back their development plans and increasing new properties.

For his part, the representative of Capsa Developments, Carlos Escobar, confirmed that these works will enter the Airbnb scheme, which does not pay the Tax on Lodging and services such as water and electricity with domestic rates.

“The majority, and in fact, we are very happy, I believe that like all Mazatlecos we must be very happy because the Airbnb scheme has come to bring thousands and thousands of new tourists to Mazatlan,” he said.

Representatives of the real estate guild that develop projects in these settlements, offered a press conference to face the complaints of neighbors, and ensure that they have everything in order to build towers in a residential area.

They expressed that they comply with the regulations that the municipal government indicates to build condominium towers in Gaviotas, Lomas de Mazatlán and others, and ask the non-conforming neighbors to support and understand them.

They said that if they get sued and their projects are canceled, Mazatlan would lose the opportunity to have a great economic impact and jobs.
