In Yucatan real estate, one of the most popular options is the beautiful colonial Yucatan homes for sale in the romantic city of Merida.  However, another less known but very attractive option is that of a countryside estate.  The following are a few of the reasons why it’s a very feasible option for you to own an estate in the beautiful countryside in the state of Yucatan.


Old Haciendas are available – Yucatan’s countryside used to be divided up between the wealthy, upper-class land owners.  They built beautiful estates with classic, large traditional Mexican homes.  Since the upper class disappeared, their haciendas have been abandoned, used as retreat centers or restored as personal estates.  The good part is you don’t have to be upper class to consider this option.


Yucatan land for sale is affordable – Land in the countryside surrounding Merida is very well prices.  Larger parcels can be found for surprisingly low prices, where you can have a custom home built, set up a hobby farm or simply design your own dream estate to enjoy the warm weather.


There is easy air access – The city of Merida has a well-connected international airport, with well-priced flights to any major airport in North America.  Only 3 hours away is the Cancun international airport which is one of the best connected in Latin America and growing as an international hub.  While you live in your countryside escape in paradise, you’re never far from home.


The weather is warm year-round – Yucatan’s climate is always warm. The vegetation of the countryside balances the warm sun making the air both fresh and refreshing.


You’re near the beach – The beach is only a 20 minute drive from Merida, meaning that it can easily be enjoyed for an afternoon outing.  The beaches are quieter and less crowded than in the famous tourist locations along the Caribbean, and are spotted with quaint little towns.


There are good roads and modern utilities – Even in much of Yucatan’s countryside, the roads are good and there is excellent access to municipal utilities such as water, electricity, phone and even high-speed internet.  This makes it easy to enjoy escape into the beautiful, natural Yucatan countryside, leaving stress, crowds and pollution behind while still having access to comfort and communication.
