Too Young to Invest?

An acquaintance of mine is selling plots of land a few hours from Cancun, about 15 miles inland from the Mayan ruins of Tulum.

It’s cheap (about $12,000 USD total), the monthly payments are pretty easy, and the properties are big at 2.5 acres.

Negatives: It’s out in the middle of nowhere. I doubt there are any utilities out there at the moment, although who knows in a few years.

The city of Tulum is working on getting approval to build an international airport in the next few years, which could make this an amazing investment.

I dunno. This would be a much easier decision if we had more money.

What would we do with it? Hmmm, nothing right now. In a few years, either build on it or sell.

Anyway, just an idea to toy around with. It would be really cool, but is investing a priority at 24 years old?
