If you are looking for an excellent combination of beaches, nature, luxury and ecology, ecological Yucatan properties - especially land - might just be the way to go. Consider each of these features for land for sale along Yucatan’s north coast.
Beaches – The beaches along many parts of the north coast are wide, with soft sand, and warm water. Life on these beaches is very relaxing and time just seems to take on a whole different meaning. Here you can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets! Unlike the busier tourist areas along the Caribbean or Pacific coast, these areas are still very local and relaxation is simply a way of life. Development that does exist comes in the form of small villages where a handful of expats live together in very close contact with the locals.
Nature – A big part of these beaches being less touristic is that they are also more natural. In many areas, the nature remains untouched and intact – lush, green, sub-tropical jungle, palm trees and plenty of wildlife. There are areas which serve as nesting grounds for waterfowl, like flamingos. There are hundreds of species of birds, and hundreds of other animals which can be seen on a regular basis.
Ecological Lifestyle – Besides very large protected areas, near which lots can be bought, the lots themselves are ecological; they are very large, allowing owners to build a home and leave much of the nature intact. Many are also off the grid, and owners rely on alternative power (solar panels and wind turbines) for electricity.
Luxury – There are very experienced builders working in the area who can build within this context, offering a high degree of sustainability combined with beautiful and even luxury homes. With large windows offering broad views of the sea, kitchen bars and open-concept design, these homes do not “feel” ecological even though they are to a very high degree.
Convenience – The north shore of Yucatan is close to both Merida and Cancun. Both of these cities have international airports, the best of modern hospitals and many international stores. There are also always nearby villages offering the basics.
Value and Investment – These combined factors point to very excellent potential for high future value. Protected nature and sustainable design means ongoing appeal to the ever growing generation of buyers interested in living in harmony with nature and caring for the environment.
If these features sound interesting to you, contact an experienced Yucatan agent to discuss the possibility of buying land and having an eco-luxury home built.
