Bosques de Bambu: Designed for Family Living

When people move to the Riviera Maya they are most often searching for the same things: a feeling of tranquility, work opportunities, and the chance to live near a beach that has beautiful weather all year long. The Riviera Maya has all of this to offer, but as residents get older, marry and start families other needs must be met, including the most important for a family with kids: owning a home. As clients begin to focus on children as their priority their need to live close to the beach or in the busy tourist areas diminishes. They begin to look for a place to live that offers safety, security and and family oriented areas that are also close to schools, shopping malls, and hospitals.

The Riviera Maya has many such residential offerings, and a lot of them have similar amenities. But there is one new area in development that offers all of these and more, with a uniqueness of character that makes it worthy of its name: Bosque de Bambu. A lot of the best residential areas in Playa del Carmen are in the outskirts of town, far from schools and services. But Bosque de Bambu is much more central,  in the heart of Playa del Carmen, steps from the best schools, shopping centers, hospitals, and only a short drive to the beach.

 photo bambu-2_zps18ckydgw.jpg

Let´s take a look at what this community has to offer.

First off there is an excellent bilingual school right within the neighborhood called Britt Academy. It´s got excellent education from the grades of kindergarten all the way up to high school, all in one place! Next is safety:  If your family worries about being safe then you´ll love the fact that Bosque de Bambu has a perimeter fence and restricted access on each entrance. Only residents or guests will be able to get in to the subdivision. The common areas are great for enjoying your free time, the houses have gardens and there is a dog park being developed as well. This is a great residential area for establish friendships with neighbors and a feeling of community.

Artia Condos: Welcome to the Jungle!

The idea of owning a property near the beach has always been around, but it has become more and more accessible for foreigners to have their own slice of Mexican paradise. With new developments popping up throughout the Riviera Maya, the options are vast and endless, allowing people from around the world to fulfill their dreams.

However, many people don’t know where to look because they don’t know what they’re looking for. Tulum is an excellent place for investing in a place to call home. The town has everything you could possibly need, plus it’s eco-friendly, with a bohemian and relaxing vibe and perfect for anyone whose artist within requires inspiration and tranquility.

Welcome to the jungle! Tulum is home to the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, but have you ever stopped to think about its amazing and gorgeous Mayan jungle? The beauty and nature that surrounds those extraordinary white sand beaches provides the perfect place to call home. That is why Artia is the perfect choice for you.

Within the international community of Aldea Zama is where you will find this new development. It is conveniently located on the Hotel Zone strip, just mere minutes away from the beach and the archeological sites. The community is still developing, and already offering an array of living options. But what really makes it stand out is its soon-to-be pedestrian commercial area set to feature restaurants, shops, cafés, a farmer’s market and a yoga and mediation area.

Artia is different and unique, just like you, which is why it’s focused on living in the jungle, rather than the typical “living on the beach” point. However, that doesn’t mean that one doesn’t come hand in hand with the other. Additionally, living in the jungle does not mean giving up a life of comfort; although nature is the main element, the condos are modern and offer a unique blend for a unique lifestyle. Inspired by the Riviera Maya nature, Artia created a luxurious condominium complex. The place breathes tranquility and peace.

The complex features 21 condos, of which 7 are located on the ground floor and are one-story condos. These are ideal for those who have their feet on the ground and want to take just one step from the comfort of their modern home into the natural world. The other 14 are three-story townhouses designed with luxury and intended for those who dream big. These offer amazing views of the jungle.

The condos feature 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious and high-quality kitchen, closets and even air conditioning. Additionally, the ground floor condos, which are called Bahareque, feature a splash pool. Those who would rather live up high in the Chukum Condos (or townhouses) will enjoy a solarium, a splash pool and a barbeque grill. Ah, sounds like a dream!

However, luxury doesn’t stay within the walls of your home. The common area features an amazing pool and palapa, service bar and bathrooms, a library (it’s all about creativity here!), a multipurpose room and even a bike-port with free bicycles for residents to roll down the road to the beach and back.

Every resident of Artia receives an exclusive membership to the famous Papaya Playa Project Beach Club. Artia is the first complex to include such an important amenity service in Tulum. The beach club is located on the main beach highway, just a few minutes from the comfort of your home. The Papaya Playa Beach Club offers a peaceful space for spending the afternoon, drink in hand, sand in feet and worries all left somewhere else.

Cozumel Lifestyle

Grab a map of the Yucatan Peninsula and take a look at the small islands that are scattered around. The bigger one, just off the coast of Playa del Carmen, is Cozumel; as small as it may seem it offers an array of living options, as well as hundreds of activities to enjoy. A peaceful yet adventurous lifestyle is possible in this gorgeous Caribbean island, so let’s dive right in.

Living in Cozumel

Not only does living in Cozumel mean enjoying its paradise beaches, its delicious gastronomy and the number of activities on offer (we’ll get into that later), but it also means leading a life full of tranquility, peace of mind, relaxation and joy.

Cozumel goes back a long way, with the Mayan civilization being the first to have settled in the island and it was worshiped as a place of fertility. Let’s not get too deep into history, but basically this place is full of life. That is why today it thrives with natural beauty and survives on tourism. But there’s a difference when you’re a weekend tourist in Cozumel and when you are a resident of the island.

The short 30-minute ferry ride to Playa del Carmen allows you to explore the Riviera Maya in a blink of an eye; there’s no such thing as being trapped on the island. And even if you were, you’d have plenty to do in this stress-free paradise.

Things to do in Cozumel

While as a resident you might not be engaging in every tourist-like activity, you are sure to take part in the many things to do while you are there. First and most importantly, enjoying the white-sand beach and crystal clear blue waters. If you’re living in Cozumel, it’s probably due to the beach, so enjoy it! The island is surrounded by beautiful beaches to spend the day, and it even has it’s own little island (Isla de la Pasión) off the north coast.

So, what can you do in Cozumel? You can go snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, strolling down the boulevard, shopping, eating, and going out. Cozumel thrives thanks to the second biggest reef barrier in the world: the Mesoamerican Reef. This provides the most amazing underwater life, including their endemic splendid toadfish, which can only be found in its waters.

You can also visit the beautiful waters of El Cielo, named “Heaven” because of the huge amount of starfish you can find in the area. There are plenty of things to discover every weekend when you’re living in Cozumel. Oh, and don’t forget their fun beach adventure park, Chankanaab, within the National Marine Park.

Additionally, there are Mayan ruins, beach clubs, a handful of endemic animals (birds, mammals, fish and the resident reptiles), a beautiful jungle, and lovely people. Let’s not forget the gastronomy, though! Yucatan cuisine is delicious, and Cozumel refuses to be left behind. Stay away from the tourist area where you’ll find Hard Rock Café and Carlos & Charlie’s, you’re a resident now, go inland and find those delicious small restaurants with amazing homemade food.

Properties in Cozumel

So, have I convinced you to make the big move to this gorgeous paradise island? If so, let’s start thinking about where you will be living. Whether you are looking for a residential lot, a house, a condo or a villa, you are sure to find it in this gorgeous area. You can live the resort lifestyle at a condo-hotel or keep it friendly and local with a single-family home a few blocks from the beach. Whatever your needs and desires are, Cozumel is sure to deliver.

Get local

You’re not just a tourist getting off the ferry or cruise ship to spend the day or weekend in Cozumel. You’re part of the locals now. Make friends, visit small craft-shops, go grocery shopping in the local supermarkets, go to the beaches where tourists rarely make it, and get yourself a car to move around the island and explore it properly. After all, this is your home now.

This month´s Los Cabos International Film Festival put the spotlight on this beautiful vacation spot which has also become a favorite for visiting celebrities and movie stars. Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor, two actors who were in town promoting their films, spoke about how much they love Cabo and of their previous trips to Mexico. Since Los Angeles is only a 2 hour plane ride from here it makes sense that they and other Hollywood residents would choose to come here.  

But Cabo is more than a vacation spot close to LA, it’s a great place to purchase property outside of the United States. And it´s not only movie stars and wealthy people who can afford a second home here. Typical vacation property buyers have a household income of less than $100,000 and you can offset the cost of your vacation property by renting to residents or vacationers. Whether you are looking for a vacation property for personal usage or rental income, Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas real estate is a great investment that can be enjoyed by your entire family for many years to come.

These days people are buying vacation homes at younger ages, with a lot of people in their mid 40’s already thinking ahead to retirement. They are taking advantage of the current housing prices and interest rates and renting to other vacationers while they are not using as a way to offset their expenses. Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas has a long high season that attracts tourists all year, along with average of 340 days of sunshine per year. That´s something to brag about, and with the dry desert conditions it makes for a very comfortable environment. And there are plenty of cheap flights that will bring you here.

There are many reasons why you might decide to purchase a second home in Los Cabos Mexico. Escaping the long, cold winters to live in the warmth and sunshine of Los Cabos part of the year is one. Another is realizing that real estate is profitable. Golfers and fisherman come to Cabo San Lucas year round. In the summer, Cabo San Lucas has become a favorite family vacation destination, while in September and October Cabo San Lucas hosts some of the largest fishing tournaments in the world. This is a year round tourist destination.

When you are ready to make your second home purchase, contact a real estate agent the Real Estate agent that you are working with.  For Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas Real Estate check to see if the agent is a member of the Los Cabos MLS. It´s also good if they have taken classes offered by the Multiple Listing Service and  A.M.P.I. Asking your agent how long they´ve been a broker and selling real estate in the Los Cabos area is important, since you’ll want to make sure they are going to be around for a long time.
