There are many features that most Americans and Canadians are looking for when they choose a Mexico retirement.  The Akumal real estate and Puerto Aventuras real estate communities on the Riviera Maya are 2 villages that represent many these features at their best, including the following.


The beaches of the Riviera Maya are becoming legendary worldwide; it’s not that anything’s becoming better about these beaches (you can’t improve perfection!) but it’s just that the reputation is finally spreading and people are realizing that these gorgeous beaches are here.  The sand is soft and white, and the water is warm all year and a bright turquoise color  both in Akumal and Puerto Aventuras these beaches are especially wide, and retirees can enjoy them as a part of day to day life.


Quiet, Small Village Lifestyle

Most retirees look forward to living a quiet lifestyle in a village or small town setting. Although the atmosphere is distinct in each of these villages, they both offer this kind of setting  in a very pleasant way.  Akumal is an ecological village that lines several beachfront areas and bays.  It’s “town center” is 2 grocery stores with some nice rustic-style restaurants, and a few handicraft shops.  Life is very calm and in close contact with nature.  Puerto Aventuras is a marina and golf community with gated access.  There is no unnecessary traffic, and residents leave their bikes out on their front lawns without fear of theft.

Conveniences and Services

At the same time, retirees never want to be (and often can’t be) far from modern services.  In addition to the basics that each of these places includes (groceries, restaurants, cafes, etc.) each is within a 20 minute drive of larger supermarkets, banks, movie theaters, good hospitals and clinics and shopping malls in the city of Playa del Carmen or the town to Tulum.

Affordable Living

More and more retirees have to make budget their first priority.  With very well priced property options, and a low cost of living, Akumal and Puerto Aventuras make it easy for retirees to live within an average or even more limited budget while still living comfortable and enjoying life’s little luxuries.  Retirement is that much more relaxing when you don’t have to think about the budget all the time.

Any retiree interested in these 4 features, and enjoying them with a nice community of other expat retirees, will do well to consider Akumal or Puerto Aventuras.; Mexico's Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
