The Caribbean Coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula (also known as the Riviera Maya) is for many people the ideal beachfront paradise; yet, many of the communities have a distinct lifestyle atmosphere of their own.   This is definitely true of Cancun real estate, and Cozumel real estate.   Let's take a look at what makes each one unique - a Paradise of its own style.


Cancun - Paradise with a Modern Twist

Cancun is without a question a paradise; the over 30 miles of beaches that make up the famous Hotel Zone reflect the best of the Riviera Maya.   They are wide, with soft, white sand.   They water of the Caribbean is turquoise.


Nice condos can be found that directly overlook these beaches. The condos are generally high-rises with modern amenities such as pools, underground parking, lounge areas, gyms, etc.   The design and space of the units are also modern, often open-concept and always spacious.


Besides the units themselves, Cancun includes a full range of modern services including international stores, large malls, nice restaurants, top-of-the-line hospitals and much more.   On top of all this, Cancun is home to the area's international airport.


Playa del Carmen - Small Town with a European Flavor

Less than an hour down the road is the town of Playa del Carmen.   While Playa del Carmen enjoys the same kind of beaches, the community has grown in very different way.   The city has grown out along the beachfront, so even those living back in the downtown area can easily walk to the beachfront.   Downtown also has small city blocks and low-rise buildings.

Condos can be found directly on the beachfront, and back from the beach, there are condos and homes available downtown, in gated communities and on golf courses - for which the community has become well-known.


Cozumel - Island Paradise, not far from Home

When most people imagine an island paradise, they think of something isolated far into the Caribbean that might take hours to reach by boat, or have no access to anything around apart from the airport.   Cozumel is only 45 minutes away from Playa del Carmen by ferry.   Residents can enjoy an island paradise with easy access to anything else on the Riviera Maya.   The island also has an airport of its own, not to mention all basic services with large stores.   At the same time, there is no doubt that the island is a jungle paradise with ruins of the Mayans hidden away.


This is just a sample of the different communities where people can enjoy life in Paradise.   Those interested should visit to decide for themselves which is their paradise!; Mexico's Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
