How Does Playa del Carmen Real Estate Compare to the Rest of Mexico?

Mexico real estate has many excellent market areas to choose from.  Why should you as a buyer choose Playa del Carmen real estate?  The truth is, a good deal of this choice depends on personal preference.  To help you decide if Playa del Carmen is the place for you, consider the following points.

 

Playa del Carmen is distinguished by:

 

  • European Atmosphere – Playa del Carmen has welcomed a large number of expats from Italy, who have opened hotels, restaurants, cafes, bakeries and gelaterias, and have given a distinct flavour to the north half of downtown.  This atmosphere has been that much more notable because of the area’s restriction on building height.  As the town has grown into a small city, this fact has helped not only preserve but also develop the small-town, provincial atmosphere of Playa del Carmen.
  • Modern Conveniences – Over the past decade, Playa del Carmen has become home to two Walmarts (as well as a number of similar modern stores), 2 shopping malls, 2 large-screen movie theaters, a Home Depot, a large state-of-the-art, international hospital and many other features of a comfortable, modern lifestyle.  The balance of a “provincial” lifestyle and modern conveniences appeals to many buyers who prefer real estate in a picturesque area with a relaxed lifestyle, but still like to enjoy the comforts they know from back home.
  • Ease of Travel – Playa del Carmen is only 45 minutes away from the Cancun International Airport, Mexico’s second busiest airport.  This airport not only offers real estate buyers direct flights to any major North American airport on a very regular basis, but also excellent prices.  Many Canadians from Toronto, for example, find they can fly to Playa del Carmen cheaper than to Halifax on their own east coast, or to parts of Mexico that are geographically closer.   Cancun’s connections throughout the world are also growing, making it easy for real estate owners to see the world with Playa del Carmen as their base.

  • Unique Natural Features – The two most outstanding features of the area are the Mesoamerican Coral Reef, which is a very unique and beautiful biosphere where people can dive and see the bright, living colors, and the “cenotes,” which are cool, fresh pools at the entrance ways to the area’s underground cave and river system. They are beautiful and perfect for a refreshing swim on a hot day.

 

While other parts of Mexico share some of these features, the combination of them defines Playa del Carmen as unique.  Those interested in a lifestyle including these features will do well to consider Playa del Carmen real estate.
