Merida Real Estate – Modern Condos in a Classic Old City

When Americans and Canadians buy Merida real estate, one of the prime motivations is to live in a classic old city with plenty of history, culture and class.  The good news is that this same lifestyle can be enjoyed while living in a beautiful, modern condo!

Merida condos for sale can be found a very short drive away from the city’s historic colonial center which is the second largest in Mexico.  The new development areas of the city are also near modern shopping malls with supermarkets, international stores, movie theaters, and shops of all kinds.  Large sports complexes and parks are also common.  The outer developments of the city are all connected by a large ring-road expressway making access to the other newer services as fast as getting downtown.

Modern condos in the city offer all comforts and conveniences that buyers are used to, and possibly even more.  Elevators, large glass windows with spectacular views, on-site emergency services, underground parking, convenience stores in the complex, pools, terraces, lounge areas, spaces for events and gatherings, granite counters, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and similar items could all be expected in a modern condo complex in this old city.

Merida is one of the few cities in the world that has not lost its value for class; upper-middle class residents – the same whose ancestors built the classic mansions and private estates of the old city – now often choose this same modern luxury while making the short drive to enjoy the class and history of the city they have given its culture to!  The drive downtown is only about 10 – 15 minutes.

People like this, along with other expats, will be the neighbors of Americans and Canadians who choose this modern way of enjoying the colonial world.

Nearby Yucatan condos for sale offer the same balance.  About 20 minutes away are the charming old port and fishing towns of the Yucatan’s north coast.  The towns are defined by a combination of colonial and Caribbean in both visual aspects and lifestyle, with traditional markets and Mexico’s lively festivities.  Modern beachfront condos offer an ideal comfortable way to enjoy the real Mexico very directly!

In short, it is possible to enjoy the best of both worlds; Americans and Canadians can enjoy all the old charm of colonial Mexico while living a fully comfortable modern lifestyle.  The best part is that it is all very well priced!
