The development of Cancun was a very conscious choice on the part of the government that launched a major push in 1974 to create a resort town to rival Acapulco. Clearly they succeeded, and now that most of the coastline has been filled in, the city is slowly expanding inland. Cancun South is a growing suburban area full of gated housing communities that has become popular with middle class Mexican families and expats looking for a cheaper, more family friendly alternative to the hotel zone and downtown. Land in the area is still relatively inexpensive and most developments boast large common areas and the opportunity to build your own dream home. The high convenience factor is another plus with several mega shopping complexes in the area like Malecon Americas.
