Part of the attraction of buying Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale is the lure of living like you’re on vacation – all the time. For this reason it is important that the area’s resort complexes, which share many of their amenities with Playa del Carmen condos for sale within the complexes, are winning international awards.
A specific recent example is that the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization (WTO) has recently granted its annual Ulysses Awards, giving fairly high recognition to the Mayakoba Resort complex in Playa del Carmen. OHL Developments, the master developer for Mayakoba was given the top award for the business innovation category, for development of sustainable and responsible tourism.
Several leading condo projects are located within the Mayakoba development, as well as the golf course which has played the most central role in earning Playa del Carmen the title of being Latin America’s Golf Capital. The course is El Camaleon, and hosts the annual Mayakoba Golf Classic, Latin America’s first PGA event. The area’s 9 other golf courses offer a variety of golfing as well as upscale golf course real estate.
The award also reflects that the direction that the developments in the area have taken, offering innovation and creativity in what they offer both tourists and real estate buyers. Grand Coral, another resort complex near Mayakoba at the north end of Playa del Carmen, has likewise combined a professional golf course, designed by Nick Price, with high quality golf course condos and several excellent developments of beachfront condominium complexes.
Part of the area’s lure for both tourism and real estate is the variety of styles. About 40 minutes south, Akumal real estate combines luxury properties with a quaint village that has carefully respected the natural surroundings.
Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area has won numerous tourism awards, and is likely to keep doing so; real estate buyers can gain confidence from this fact that they are indeed buying their home in an area that offers the ideal combination of beachfront paradise modern lifestyles.
The ceremony for the WTO awards will be held at a gala dinner during the WTO Forum on Tourism in Vilamoura, Portugal, from in June 1-3, 2011.
