The island of Cozumel is located about an hour south of Cancun, and another 45 minutes away by boat. This beautiful Caribbean island is usually lumped together as one real estate region – “Cozumel real estate” – but there is a fair bit of variety in location styles. Consider the following options.
Homes In Town – One of the most common options is homes in the town of San Miguel Cozumel. Homes in town are often quaint and cozy one story houses, with a reasonably sized yard and plenty of patio space. The town is small, and residents can walk everywhere – to parks, cafes, restaurants, artisan shops, bars, shopping centers and much more. The town is picturesque and very pleasant for strolling down quiet streets, riding bike or just relaxing.
Beachfront Condos – Just north of town, there is a stretch where Mexico condos for sale directly on the beachfront are very common. These offer an upscale lifestyle with beautiful views of the strait which separates Cozumel from Playa del Carmen – the tourist town where the ferry dock is located on the mainland. Nighttime offers beautiful sunsets and then romantic views of the lights of Playa del Carmen on the horizon.
Resort Complexes – Cozumel is home to a handful of beautiful luxury resorts, many of which are on the north side of the island. These same resorts include residential areas within their complex, offering condo buyers a lifestyle that includes all the benefits of living on a resort – direct beach access, sports facilities, restaurants, pools, beach clubs, etc. It’s like living on vacation, all the time.
South Beachfront – The area south of town is luxurious and upscale. Beautiful, large homes can be found directly on the beachfront with beautiful views, large spaces (in the home, yard and patios) and excellent views. Imagine living in luxury like this with one of the world’s most beautiful beaches on your front yard to enjoy every day …
Eco Lots – Back from the beach, just out of town, a short drive into the jungle (a mile or two) there are ecological lots for sale. Besides an environment-friendly lifestyle surrounded by lush, green nature, these lots are very well priced. Experienced builders in the area know how to build a luxury home that is sustainable and in compliance with environmental guidelines.
This is just a brief overview of some of the options to consider. The island of Cozumel is varied in its real estate options and offers something for everyone.
