Although the favorite in the Playa del Carmen real estate area are the condos on or near the beachfront, an alternative real estate type in the area is Mexico land for sale; an area of special interest is the nearby Tulum real estate market.
Those interested in buying land in the Riviera Maya (the area stretching from just south of Cancun, down past Playa del Carmen to Tulum) might consider a variety of different options throughout the region. Some of the more noteworthy ones include:
Golf course lots – These lots are among some of the most desired, where buyers can build their dream home overlooking the fairways of the area’s beautiful course. One community to consider is Puerto Aventuras, about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. This gated community includes all services of a small town, 3 marinas and its golf course. From the golf course lots, residents can walk comfortably to the many services in the community, as well as to the beachfront.
Upscale land developments – Tulum is home to a handful of developments which offer lots for sale supported by a full community design, complete with a village center area with stores and restaurants. Buyers can have a comfortable home built in a contemporary community and enjoy walks to downtown Tulum, the beach and future golf course and resort areas. This kind of lot is a nice balance between the flexibility of buying land to have your own home built, and the comfort of a planned community development with services and a clear, visually appealing design concept.
Eco-friendly complexes – Near Tulum and Playa del Carmen there are developments offering land for sale in eco-friendly settings. These developments use natural and local materials to build roads, parks and community areas. Sometimes they are also off-the-grid. A culture for home building that incorporates sustainability (i.e. solar pads, wind turbines and alternative water disposal) into luxury is a growing trend among buyers of this kind of lot, and there are a growing number of services to build and construct such homes, as well as to equip them with the necessary equipment.
Gentrifying communities – Some communities near downtown and the beachfront have been entirely overlooked by the international real estate market since they have been traditionally lower income. Their location, however, has made a few investors and buyers looking to save money begin to take notice. Lots are still available for reasonable prices.
Real estate buyers considering the Playa del Carmen and Tulum area should consider land for sale as a viable and attractive option. An experienced agent will be able to help decide if land is right for them, and to select an ideal lot.
