TOP Playa del Carmen properties offers a variety of property types and locations; the most "visible" choice is the many condos which line the beachfront and surround the main tourist areas. While these are excellent choices, it's also good to know where to look for other property types, like homes or land.
Playa del Carmen homes for sale can be found in a variety of locations. One of the classic choices is the community known as Playacar, at the south end of downtown. It is an upscale, gated community, centered around a golf course, with bike trails, green areas and walkways shaded by tall trees.
Newer gated communities both north of town, along the beachfront, and near Playacar surrounding one of the city's new malls also offer homes for sale, both on single lots, and as villas in complex settings.
At the north end of downtown, there is a quiet residential community which was the area's original working class area. It is within a very short walk to the beachfront, where nice, new hotels are just staring to go in. In this area homes can be found for very low prices as fixer-upper projects, and some nicely renovated homes are also available.
Another option for those who want a home is, of course, Playa del Carmen land for sale. This same community at the north end of downtown offers some well priced lots for those who wish to build near the beach at a more affordable price.
One of the most noticeable options for land in the area has been the new golf course in Puerto Aventuras, which is a full marina and golf community, offering shopping, dining, school, a church, and a number of activities. These lots are reasonably priced, and offer buyers an excellent way to enjoy life in a community that balances gated security and exclusivity with convenience and activity.
There are also a variety of new land developments in the area, which are gated communities, with roads, modern, underground infrastructure and lots ready to build on. Land in Playa del Carmen continues to be an excellent option both for those who want to build their dream home, and for investment. The key is to know which part of the city to look in.
This is just a brief overview. Interested buyers should consult with an experienced agent to help them find the home or lot ideal for their needs.
