These days, American’s nearing retirement will often wonder if they can still afford to live in the comfort they had been planning on; one way of making this possible is through a Playa del Carmen retirement.  Besides the fact that Playa del Carmen real estate - topmexicorealestate.com/playadelcarmen-real-estate is very affordable, the cost of living is also low, and the quality of life is high.  Here are some factors to keep in mind in considering Playa del Carmen as a retirement destination.

 

The Beaches

Of course, one of the items which most attract retirees to Playa del Carmen is the beautiful beaches; these are very wide, the sand is soft and the water is warm.  Besides the fact that they are comfortable, the beaches are also very beautiful with white sand and turquoise water.  There’s something to be said for retiring near the world’s most beautiful beach – especially when this retirement saves you money.

 

Prices

Playa del Carmen beachfront for sale can be found for surprisingly low prices; for those on a tighter budget, properties a few blocks back from the beach can be found for even lower prices.  Because of Playa del Carmen’s layout, even properties back from the beach have easy walking access – and the walk is nice!  The cost of living is also low.

 

The Warm Weather

While for younger vacationers and expats making Playa del Carmen their home the year-round warm-weather is a nice luxury, for retirees it is a necessity.  The aches and pains that become ever more frequent in northern winters become more than just an inconvenience.

 

Excellent Healthcare

Speaking of health, Playa del Carmen also offers state-of-the-art health-care facilities; again, prices are very low and insurance can also be found for much better prices.  One hour away in Cancun, there are even more facilities with a large number of specialty services.

 

Plenty of Activities

The year round warm weather can be enjoyed not only biking, walking and having cold drinks on a beautiful terrace, but also on boat tours, fishing, sightseeing, traveling in general, snorkelling, playing golf (which is excellent in Playa del Carmen) and many other outdoor activities and events.

 

Easy Access Home

Cancun International Airport is only 45 minutes away; this airport offers well-priced, direct flights to all major locations in North America.  A growing number of discount airlines are offering very cheap direct flights.

 

The question for retirement in Playa del Carmen is not if you can afford this luxury, but rather if you can afford NOT to live in this luxury; life is better, and the cost is lower.
