While the main focus of Yucatan real estate tends to be the charming colonial homes in the capital city of Merida, there are also excellent beachfront options available along the beaches stretching across the north of the Peninsula. Consider some of the benefits of this area.
Very Quiet Lifestyle - The north shore of the Yucatan Peninsula is relatively low in tourism compared to bustling centers around Cancun. This means that you can live quietly on the beach, really away from everything – even away from other people who are trying to get away from it all! The beaches are beautiful, as is the nature. Those who choose an in-town Yucatan home for sale will also find that the villages are small, quiet and neighborly.
Prices are Low – While this is especially true of Yucatan land for sale out along the coast in the small towns and between, it is also true in town, as well as home ready to use. Fixer-upper homes have become a favorite in some of the towns. In all cases, prices are SURPRISINGLY low. The cost of living is also very low, in everything from groceries, to property taxes, from health care to traveling.
Ecological Areas are Available – Further to the east along this stretch of beachfront, actually, there are large protected areas, such as Rio Lagartos, which is a large nesting ground for flamingos. Ecological beachfront lots can be found directly within the protected areas, offering the possibility of living a life in close contact with nature, while still living comfortably. If the other areas offer a quiet lifestyle away from it all, these offer it that much more!
Close Access to Airports – The north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula has close access to two major international airports – Merida (between 30 minutes and 2 hours away) and Cancun (between 1 and 3 hours away.) This makes arrival easy and affordable. Since most real estate attention has been looking southward from Cancun, beachfront lots and homes fairly close to both can be found that are still quiet, undiscovered and affordable.
Close to Modern Services – For this same reason, owners can find a full range of modern services close by, including large supermarkets, sports complexes, malls, movie theaters, state-of-the-art hospitals and golf courses. The communities along the beachfront offer the basics, such as groceries, a few stores and banks.
If you have been looking for your own corner of beachfront paradise on the Yucatan Peninsula, consider the northern coast area for a quiet lifestyle and lower prices.
