Entering the Playa del Carmen Real Estate area, the sight you see currently as you approach downtown is closed center lanes of the highway, with several concrete posts finished, and a few more under construction at the main intersection with Juarez Avenue. While the sight isn't very attractive at the moment, it's demonstrates the speed and efficiency that Playa del Carmen Real Estate owners enjoy in infrastructure improvements. Within the larger market of Mexico Real Estate, Playa del Carmen is one of a few privileged areas that enjoys a large amount of government investment to move improvements quickly and make sure that property owners enjoy convenience without much delay.
The concrete posts, some of which are under construction, and other which are quickly being finished, are the first step in the construction of a series of three bridges which will ease traffic at the city's main intersections with the federal highway, which connects Playa del Carmen with Cancun to north and Tulum to the south. Since the project was announced less than three months ago, the work has moved along quickly. These three intersections with the highway so far have not seen heavy traffic problems, but the project reflects the governments' dedication to addressing such problems before they get out of hand. With the current level of traffic, which even at peek hours cause maximum delays of 5 to 10 minutes, there are not any large difficulties for travelers, even though the center lanes of the highway are closed.
As outlined when the project began, the bridges were planned in order to offer a continued easy flow of traffic not only on the three main roads in question, but also with the effects seen through the city. Currently a car can cross from one extreme of Playa del Carmen to the other in about 20 minutes. The bridges should help to keep things this way.
For many property buyers in Playa del Carmen an attractive element is the small town atmosphere found on Fifth Avenue and the nearby areas. Infrastructure improvements have helped to maintain this atmosphere, allowing the pleasantness of a relaxing, pedestrian area, while combining this with easy access to larger shopping centers with large, international stores, as well as to the conveniences offered by other nearby cities, such as the international airport and further shopping available in Cancun, and the Mayan pyramids and beautiful eco-parks towards Tulum.
Playa del Carmen is a growing real estate market, and includes many opportunities for buyers. But for property buyers it is also important to know that as Playa del Carmen grows, infrastructure improvements are made to keep up with the growth, and likewise the convenience of life in the area continues to attract diverse international residents, which in turn allows Playa del Carmen's unique international, European-feeling community to offer even more to its residents.
