In Yucatan real estate, there is a little-known option for owning cheap property on the beachfront; it is the small towns on the north coast, starting just 30 minutes away from the capital city of Merida. In this area, Yucatan homes for sale and Yucatan land for sale can be found at very reasonable prices. The area offers beachfront paradise lifestyle to many American and Canadian buyers not only because of its low prices, but also because of its quiet, out of the way lifestyle atmosphere.
Consider some of the benefits of living in this area.
Beautiful Beaches – The beaches on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula are beautiful, with soft sand. The water is also warm. They are ideal for swimming, wind surfing, beachfront volleyball, or just a quiet walk in the sand.
Low Prices – One of the most attractive features is that nice real estate is low-priced. Nice homes and large lots are available for very low prices. The main reason for this is that the area remains somewhat “undiscovered” in contrast the east, Caribbean shore.
Low Cost of Living – Like in all of Mexico, the cost of living is very low; this is true about everything from groceries to healthcare, from eating out to travelling. Again, being less known helps to keep the prices lower.
Small-Town Relaxation – Besides the simple fact that being less known means lower prices, it also means that the towns are quieter. Those who already live in the area often chose it for just this reason; it is quiet, with minimal tourism, and people here live a life of complete relaxation as they have for centuries.
Close Access to Services – Even though the towns are quiet, relaxing and fairly undiscovered, they are only 30 minutes away from the city of Merida, which includes all services, including large malls, international stores, excellent hospitals, big sports complexes and much more. Those who choose these beachfront towns usually do so to avoid the city, but it is nice to have a large city a short drive away.
Close Access for Arriving – Merida also has a well-connected international airport. Expressway access leads directly to the beachfront area. Flights to the U.S. and Canada are usually between 2 and 5 hours, and are also well priced. As a back-up option, Cancun International Airport is only 3 hours away.
For an affordable beachfront lifestyle it’s worth consider homes or land on Yucatan’s north coast.
