Mexico beachfront for sale on the Riviera Maya – the area surrounding Playa del Carmen and Tulum – offers real estate buyers two excellent advantages. One is that it is the golf capital of Latin America; the other is that it offers some of the best beaches in the world.

Both points are attested to fairly clearly. Within Mexico golf course real estate, the area is leading this new and exciting market. The Riviera Maya's claim to fame in golf arises from its offering of a total of 13 courses within an area of a 2 hour drive. These courses are much more than just run-of-the-mill amusements for tourists; they are professional designed courses, boasting names like Jack Nicklaus, Robert Von Hagge, Greg Norman and Nick Price.

One of the courses is also home to Latin America's first PGA event, the Mayakoba Golf Classic. The courses are challenging and interesting, with a variety of options and styles. For golf lovers, the quality of the courses is enough motivation to buy real estate in the area.

Riviera Maya golf course real estate lives up to the reputation of the courses as well. Well designed, comfortable condos, patio homes and villas offer beautiful views of the course, and comfortable living in year-round warm weather. The biggest surprise about the properties is that they are actually accessibly priced.

On the other side of things, many of these golf communities are located directly on the beachfront, or within comfortable walking distance. Those who love beaches will also not me disappointed; in fact, they would be hard pressed to find better.

A recent phenomenon recurring ever more frequently is that the beaches of the Riviera Maya have been showing up lists of top rated beaches around the world.

Most recently, the area showed up at in fourth place in TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice ranking, a selection based on the preference of travelers who use the website. Visitors describe the place as an ideal beach for romance and relaxation, with the charming ruins of Tulum nearby, which overlook the beachfront. Visitors can find traditional Mayan massage, spa treatments and sand baths.

The only point that the travelers on TripAdvisor got wrong is that even better than visiting the Riviera Maya is actually living here.

Those who have any doubt about the quality of golf or the beaches here need only visit, and the area will speak for itself; no internet ranking or international title can really reflect the true quality of life int this area. The problem, those who come on vacation to check if the beaches and golf are really that good won't want to go home.; Mexico's Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
