One of the main attractive points of Mexico beachfront for sale is the variety available in property and location styles. Two communities very close to each other on the Riviera Maya – Puerto Aventuras real estate and Akumal real estate - demonstrate how different community styles can be and how broad the options for buyers are.
Puerto Aventuras is a gated marina and golf community that is in many ways more like a small town in itself. It includes three beautiful marinas, a nice golf course, shopping areas, restaurants, a church and even a school. The streets are lined with trees, and the gated entrance makes it even more secure than the rest of the area which is already one of the safest in Mexico and even safer than many parts of the U.S. Residents leave their bikes parked on the lawns without locking them, and the atmosphere is very laid back and relaxed.
As for beachfront properties, homes and condos on the stretches of beach between the marinas can be found directly next to the sand with spectacular views. Also very attractive as a waterfront option are the marina-front condos. The condos on the third marina are considered to be some of the most luxurious and exclusive in the entire Caribbean area. All residents have comfortable walking or biking distance to the waterfront, shops and golf course.
Akumal is just a little south of Puerto Aventuras; it shares the beautiful white beaches, the turquoise Caribbean and the year-round warm weather, but offers an altogether different lifestyle. The main defining factor of Akumal is care for the surrounding nature. The village includes an ecological center, a number of protected sand dune areas, a number of quaint, thatched-roof restaurants and shops that sell local handicrafts and artwork. There are also two small grocery stores that cover most of the basics.
As one might expect, one of the most popular real estate types here are beachfront homes in the village, and out along the nearby bays; many of the homes include ecological and sustainable features, such as natural “marshland” gardens that act as water purification systems. There are also regular beachfront condos that offer close contact with the surrounding nature.
It’s easy enough to see the difference in the lifestyle between the two communities. Both offer a low cost of living and close access to the Cancun international airport. Both are beautiful beachfront locations.
