Playa del Carmen Real Estate - Why it is Your TOP Beachfront Retirement Option

In terms of markets to consider for Mexico beachfront for sale for retirement, Playa del Carmen real estate is not only one of the best in Mexico, but compares very well internationally.  Consider the following reasons why Playa del Carmen retirement should be one of your top choices.

 

The fabulous beaches

Playa del Carmen’s beaches are not only among the finest in the Caribbean region, but they also compare well worldwide.  The sand is white and soft.  The bright turquoise water is warm – all the time.  Of course, since the weather is warm all year round, you can enjoy the sunny beaches just about any time of year.  The warm weather is also a plus for many retirees who can no longer handle the cold and snow of northern winters (besides simply being tired of it.)

The European lifestyle

Playa del Carmen stands out among beachfront resort towns as having a unique lifestyle atmosphere; buildings are never higher than 4 stories, there are small city blocks, sidewalk cafes, real Italian restaurants, gelaterias and pizza shops and a romantic atmosphere that has gained the community one of the top 10 positions in the world; what a better touch to add to retirement than a romantic spark for a decades-old love?  (Or, depending on your situation, maybe finding that new love …)

 

The low costs

One very important point is that living on or near the beachfront in Playa del Carmen is affordable.  Real estate prices compare very well to other beachfront resort towns, and there is something within walking distance of the beach for just about any budget.  The cost of living is also low; most people say it’s about half of the costs back home.  Budget is always a big consideration for retirement.

Close, easy & affordable access home

Playa del Carmen is 45 minutes away from Cancun International Airport, which is Mexico’s second-best connected airport, and by far its best priced.  Direct flights can be found to all major airports in North America for very low prices, especially for retirees who are flexible for travel times and can travel back and forth during lower demand times.

Perhaps the only reason that you could have NOT to choose Playa del Carmen for your retirement is if you love snow.  (Even then, you could head back for Christmas, but I haven’t come across too many retirees that are terribly bothered by the lack of snow!)
