Touristic areas in developing countries suffer from a great amount of urban sprawl. Caused by low-income workers of big hotel chains. Resulting in unsustainable housing developments and also, slums. This is a common problem in Mexico, where renowned resorts such as Cancun, Cabos, Acapulco, etc. give shape to a workers’ community, sometimes 5x bigger than the actual touristic area. As they cannot pay the high costs of building by the waterfront, they have to move deeper into the mainland. Creating huge communities with lack of proper infrastructure, great social inequalities, and low resilency to natural disasters.
