If you are considering buying real estate in the Playa del Carmen – Tulum area, one of many great options you might consider is buying in a resort. Owning a condo within a resort complex has full set of clear advantages. Bahia Principe real estate near Tulum is an excellent example of this, as this list of advantages will demonstrate.
Exclusive Beaches – The beaches on the Riviera Maya (the stretch between Cancun and Tulum) are all spectacular – they are very wide, with soft white sand, and the uniquely turquoise Caribbean Sea beyond; yet these beaches are even better when you can enjoy them in an exclusive setting set up especially for the taste of those enjoying the resort. Of course, many of those enjoying the beach will be vacationers, but you can be fairly sure that they will share the same high-quality tastes in lifestyle as you.
Excellent Beach Club – Part of what makes the beaches exclusive is the existence of nice beach clubs. These include large beachfront infinity pools, bars (including pool-side bars) and restaurants. There will also be lounge chairs, canopy beds and whatever else you need to enjoy the warm picturesque beachfront to its fullest. Enjoying a beach is one thing, enjoying with service and taste is another.
Golf – Playa del Carmen has been named the capital of Latin America’s golf culture. The area includes 9 excellent courses, many of them professional, and one which is host to Mexico’s only PGA event. Resorts like Bahia Principe offer on-site golf courses; this particular course has 36 holes of quality golf to be enjoyed by both professionals and those who play as a simple pastime. Golf also increases the exclusivity and value of properties on the resort complex.
Resort Activities – Of course, owning a condo on a resort means that you have resort activities at your front door; these include sports complexes with tennis courts and soccer fields, gyms, sailing, diving, kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing and much more. Having all of these activities to choose from makes it easy to be relaxed and healthy. It’s kind of like living on vacation, all the time.
Restaurants, Bars, etc. – Playa del Carmen and Tulum have excellent restaurants of high quality with food ranging from local specialties to international gourmet. However, for days that you’d rather stay close to home, resorts will include fine dining and tasty snacks of their own. It’s also nice to have a convenient and comfortable place to enjoy a cold drink, whether it’s on the beachfront or on the poolside.
Increased Rental Potential – Having access to all of these things is as attractive to other vacationers as it is to you. If you don’t use your condo all year round and you want to generate some income, a condo within a resort complex will hold high appeal for renters looking to stay within the comfort of a resort, but enjoy the added privacy of a rented condo. Some buyers see this kind of purchase as an investment in both lifestyle and finances.
Easy access Outside Services – Unlike other vacationers, you will probably want more frequent access to the conveniences of the nearby communities – supermarkets, the shops and small-town atmosphere of Tulum, the cafes, restaurants and clubs of Playa del Carmen, banks, etc. Resorts like Bahia Principe are a short drive away from town. Driving is easy and straight forward, and there will not be a problem in getting a taxi to come out to the resort to take you into town.
Yes, there are other excellent options in the area, but owning a condo on a resort like Bahia Principe offers the best of many of the features which many buyers are looking for, at prices that may surprise you.
