Anyone who loves shopping will know that really going shopping not only means that you go to a great store with lots of neat things, but also that you go to several good stores.  So when you go shopping for Playa del Carmen real estate, the good news is that you can REALLY go shopping and enjoy a few different “stores;” while looking around in Playa del Carmen, you can also check out Cancun real estate less than an hour north, or Tulum real estate just an hour south, not to mention several communities in between. Let’s take a look at some of the great variety you can find shopping for real estate in this area!

 

Cancun – Cancun is the area’s “big city;” full of great stores, restaurants and modern conveniences, buyers can enjoy a beachfront lifestyle in a very convenient way.

 

Puerto Morelos – This village on the beach has made an effort to retain a very local atmosphere where the beach still has individual homes next to it, and relaxation is not a part of your life, but the whole thing!

 

Xcalacoco Beach – Just north of Playa del Carmen, this area has a number of new gated communities and upscale resorts with professional golf courses.  Nice condo complexes offer properties for a variety of budgets.

 

Playa del Carmen – This is the “heart of the Riviera Maya” not only referring to its central location, but also to the romantic atmosphere offered by the European flavor of downtown.  Nice condos near Fifth Avenue’s shopping, dining and nightlife are a favorite.

 

Playacar – This is Playa del Carmen’s original, upscale gated community, a walk away from downtown.

 

Puerto Aventuras – This gated community is more like a town in itself, with a golf course, 3 marinas, shopping, dining and even a school and a church.

 

Chemuyil – This village is a nice place with low-priced, cozy homes.   The nearby beaches are very natural.

 

Akumal – Akumal is directly on the beachfront, and not only very natural, but it also has a culture for environmental care.

 

Tulum – This town is the area’s next booming community. Investors, retirees and vacationers are looking to Tulum for good land investment where they can enjoy life and good investment potential.

 

This overview is very brief, but I think you get the picture; if you like shopping around for real estate, Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area give you a great selection of communities to check out!
