For retirees, there is a growing attraction to owning Playa del Carmen real estate, either to live in full time, or use at least for the winter. Within the various options, one of the favorites is Playa del Carmen condos on the beachfront.
The main lure behind buying Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale is, of course, the beautiful, wide, sandy beaches which have made this area famous. Being able to go for walks in the sand whenever you feel like, relaxing on a lounge chair in the shade, and even taking dips in the warm water of the Caribbean Sea are an experience unequalled in any part of the world due to the outstanding beauty of the place.
However, in addition to beautiful beaches, Playa del Carmen has grown to offer you as a retiree many other benefits.
One is the variety of properties available. Beachfront penthouses are ideal for those with a bit more cash, but more affordable units can be found a very short walk back from the beach; whichever you choose, you will be getting much more value than on similar properties in the U.S. There are also villas and single lot homes available in excellent locations.
Another advantage is the availability of a large number of services. Playa del Carmen has 2 Walmarts, and 6 similar stores with comparable prices. There are 2 large malls, big-screen theaters with English movies, many restaurants, a large variety of shopping options in clothing, jewelry and furniture, local handicrafts, professional golf courses, full-service marinas and much more. There are also many nearby sights to see, such as old colonial cities and Mayan pyramids.
There is also a number of high-quality hospitals, one of which offers world-class service and state-of-the-art equipment. Another similar hospital is in the planning stages. Prices are much better than healthcare in the U.S., and the World Health Organization has ranked private Mexican hospitals on par with those in the U.S.
A final point is that the advantages of retiring in Playa del Carmen is no secret; there is already a significant community of retirees and other expats from the U.S. and Canada living here. This offers you the comfort of having neighbors from back home, and sharing your favorite retirement activities with them!
