Playa del Carmen Real Estate - Beachfront Properties for Retirement

One of the most attractive property locations in Playa del Carmen real estate for retirement is that of Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale.  The following are some of the variations of beachfront property that buyers could consider for Playa del Carmen retirement and the points that make them attractive.

 

Downtown Condos – Downtown is very attractive for many retirees.  Besides offering views of some of the widest and best beaches in the region, it offers retirees a walk-everywhere lifestyle.  Fifth Avenue, Playa del Carmen’s main downtown street with cafes, shops, restaurants, bars and much more, runs parallel to the beachfront about a block or two away.  Also nearby are stores like Walmart and many services.  Downtown’s European atmosphere with small city blocks and low-rise buildings makes the walk-everywhere lifestyle attractive for retirees in the area.

Condos in Gated Communities – These are one of the favorites.  While there are fewer conveniences within walking distance, they offer a quiet lifestyle with properties surrounded by green spaces and trees.  There are often bike trails and little parks.  Condo complexes directly on the beachfront also offer conveniences like pools and gyms to make it easier to enjoy day to day life without having to leave the complex.  The original neighborhood of this sort – Playacar Phase 1 -  tends to be a little more expensive, but offers the benefit of being walking distance from downtown.

 

Golf Course Communities – Very similar to the communities mentioned above are a handful of golf course communities which offer condo complexes directly on the beachfront, or within very short walking distance.  These communities combine two of Playa del Carmen’s favorite communities for retirees – beachfront and golf.  Besides offering close access to professional golf courses (Playa del Carmen has been named Latin America’s golf capital) the golf community atmosphere is upscale, tasteful and gives properties excellent value.  Those who enjoy upscale living, whether they love golf or not can appreciate this kind of community.

 

Beachfront Homes – While in the central areas and nearby communities of Playa del Carmen homes directly on the beachfront are rare, there are some villages within about 20-30 minutes where beautiful beachfront homes on private lots can be found.  Prices are, of course, higher than for condos, but are surprisingly low considering the quality of the homes and the location directly on a beautiful beach.

 

Anyone who wishes to retire on a beach will do well to consider the variety of options available in Playa del Carmen.
