Buying Mexico Land for Sale in the Riviera Maya – Choosing Your Beach

In my years as an agent, I have seen many different methods/motivations for choosing to buy specific Mexico land for sale, such as investment potential, price, size or trendiness of the neighborhood.  All these are fine; yet, if you are planning on buying land in the Riviera Maya, I want to recommend a different approach; start by exploring the top beaches in the area, choose your favorite one, and then find a nearby lot.

This approach is made easy by means of websites dedicated to presenting you with the area’s top beaches and giving you tools to see which one you like best.  They can include complete photo galleries of stunning pictures, HD videos, maps and descriptions.

This means that you will quickly get a good feel for what beach is like; is it a trendy beach club in the heart of downtown Playa del Carmen, or is it quiet, rustic beach with only a hut marking a dirt-road entrance from the highway?  There are many other beach styles in the Riviera Maya to choose from.  In all cases, each beach has a strong appeal for different buyers.  I’m sure you know what you prefer, and it’s just a matter of knowing which beach is what style.

Using online sources will allow you to identify beaches that are probably appealing to your tastes without having to take a trip down and visit each one in person.  Some beach websites will even include a list of nearby properties for sale.

This approach has the advantage that you are starting with your main motivation for moving to the Riviera Maya – the beaches.  This way, when you find your lot and build your own custom dream home, you already know that it’s close to your favorite beach – one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Even if you are looking from an investment perspective, this approach allows you to look for a beach area with good potential and plan your investment according to the style and demand for the given beach and community.

Choosing land for sale in the Riviera Maya by other criteria is most certainly valid; in fact, our recommendation is to combine important criteria.  Yet, if the style of the beach is important to you, why not start with this aspect, and then go from there?
