Playa del Carmen Real Estate - Locations for Your Dream Home

If you are interested in Playa del Carmen real estate, one excellent option for property types is Playa del Carmen homes for sale.  There are a variety of good locations which you can consider for your dream home, including the following:

 

Playacar

Playacar is Playa del Carmen’s original upscale gated community.  It is located directly next to downtown (you can walk there from much of the community) and it is divided into two sections – Phase 1 and Phase 2.  Phase 1 is directly on the beachfront, and there are beautiful homes with pools directly next to the sand of one of Playa del Carmen’s most beautiful beaches.  Prices are higher, but still much lower than similar communities in the U.S. or other parts of the world.  Phase 2 is centered on a beautiful, professional golf course, and homes can be found overlooking the fairways.  There are also beautiful villas in nice complexes and plenty of very nice, upscale individual homes.  The prices in Phase 2 are quite accessible to the average budget.

 

Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras real estate is a unique gated community, defined by marinas and golf.  There are 3 marinas surrounded by beautiful upscale condos, and beachfront stretches in between.  Between the marinas, there are beachfront stretches with large oceanview homes with direct access to the sand.  Between the marinas and golf course there are residential and shopping areas.  A favorite is the homes directly on the beachfront.

North End

The communities just north of the heart of Playa del Carmen have typically not been an expat area, however they are very close to the beach, and a few Americans and Canadians have begun investing in fixer-uppers in the area.  With new, upscale hotels going in on the beachfront, it looks like the area is ripe for gentrification.

 

Xcalacoco Beach

This area is just north of town, and is home not only to one of the most beautiful beaches, but also to upscale resorts, professional golf courses, and very nice gated communities.  Homes, villas and condos can be found for all budgets.

 

Puerto Morelos

This beautiful fishing village is quaint and very original.  Both upscale modern homes in complexes and classic Mexican homes directly overlooking the beach are available.  The town has preserved the image of the old Riviera Maya – the fishing villages on the beach before tourism became large-scale.

 

While condos tend to get the most attention, there are excellent locations to consider for homes for sale in the Playa del Carmen area as well.
