Something many buyers don’t realize about Playa del Carmen condos for sale is that there is actually a good deal of variety in location, atmosphere and lifestyle, appealing to just about any kind of buyer. The following are a few examples of the variety in condos in this area.
Downtown – When most people imagine Playa del Carmen real estate, they imagine one of the comfortable condos in the downtown area, next to or near the beach, a short walk from the quaint shops, cafes and galleries of Fifth Avenue. While condos right on the beachfront offers luxury, very comfortable condos just a few blocks back can be found at great prices, with all the same conveniences.
Playacar – This is Playa del Carmen’s original gated community. It is upscale, with tree-lined streets, relaxing bike trails and an excellent golf course. Again condos include high-end luxury and very affordable, but high-quality and comfortable units.
Puerto Aventuras – This is a very unique community for the area, just 20 minutes south of town. It includes a marina and golf course, as well as full community services, such as a mall, a school and a shopping and dining area; in many ways, Puerto Aventuras is like a town in itself.
Akumal – Akumal real estate presents another very unique option within the Playa del Carmen area. Akumal is a quaint village which offers upscale condos very near the beach in a setting designed to be respectful to nature, and to allow residents to enjoy living in close contact with the area’s natural beauty. In Akumal “back from the beach” means a five minute walk past jungle and beautiful sand dunes.
Little Italy / North End – Heading north from downtown, the north have of the old town has developed with a very European flavor due to the large presence of Italians in the area. A large number of Argentineans have also added their touch.
Xcalacoco Beach – Playa del Carmen’s newest emerging upscale condo and villa area is just north of town (about 3 miles.) New gated communities walking distance from the beach, in the heart of the area’s superb golf culture offer properties at accessible prices, since they are still under development.
Which area sounds best for you? Come visit Playa del Carmen and take a little tour; you won’t be disappointed, and you’ll probably find yourself buying a condo sooner than you’d imagine!
