Playa del Carmen Condos – Are There Still Choice for an Average Budget?

We all like to look at pictures of luxurious condos on the beach, or even homes with indoor-outdoor living, etc.  But those for those of us on an average budget generally see this kind of option as a fairly distant dream.  The good news is that beautiful Playa del Carmen condos are available for an average budget, meaning that all of us can imagine life near the beachfront.

While condos directly on the beachfront tend to be pricier, there are excellent condo options just a little back from the beach that offer an excellent lifestyle.  The following are features you can expect:

Walk to the Beach – Playa del Carmen’s beaches are among the most beautiful in the world.  The sand is soft and the water’s warm.  The white sand also contrasts beautifully to the rich turquoise color of the water.  Living a relaxing walk away from these beaches is well worth it.

Gated Community – If you prefer, there are definitely well-priced condos available in gated communities.  New gated communities that are just beginning to take form offer low prices in their earlier stages.

Bike Trails, Green Areas – Features you can look for in the community include plenty of nicely preserved green areas as well as bike trails to enjoy the outdoors all year round!  Nicely planned roads and picturesque landscaping also aren’t too much to ask for.

Nice Complex – Pool, Gym – Complexes for an average budget can be nice as well, offering pools, comfortable lounge areas and even gyms.  An overall pleasant visual appearance can also be expected.

Plenty of Terrace Space – Individual units usually have large balconies and low-priced penthouses (yes, the do exist!) include very large rooftop terraces.  The view is usually of the pool, lounge and greenery of the common area.

Open-Concept Design – Design is usually a modern, open-concept lay-out with features like a large kitchen bar or island.  Spacious bedrooms (2 is typical) with private washrooms and large closets can often be found.

Top-of-the-Line Finishes –Nice tile-work, brand-name appliances, air conditioners, etc. can still be expected for well-priced condos.  Often appliance packages are available for reasonable prices.

All of this can be found in Playa del Carmen condos for an average budget.  Preconstruction discounts, etc. can make already low prices even more accessible.  Don’t imagine just because your budget is more limited, that you can’t enjoy a comfortable lifestyle near the beach!
