Although the option is often overlooked in favor of condos, one of the most interesting areas for Mexico homes for sale is that of condos in Playa del CarmenPlaya del Carmen homes for sale can be found in a number of interesting location styles; the following are a few options.

 

Gated Communities

One of the options with the most general appeal is that of homes within gated communities.  These can be found in the prestigious Playacar, or in the new, up-and-coming gated community of El Cielo.  Owners enjoy larger yards, increased security, less traffic, bike trails, green areas, tree-lined roads and many other appealing features.  Most gated communities include basic services (convenience stores, a café or two, etc.) and are near to shopping areas like malls.  Nice homes in Playa del Carmen’s gated communities are available for a variety of budgets.

 

Golf Courses

Playa del Carmen has been named Latin America’s golf capital, and is home to about a dozen beautiful golf courses; many of these are professionally designed.  Homes on the golf courses offer views of the fairways, a natural atmosphere and a very upscale community.  Many homes have a design as prestigious as the golf courses themselves.  These are a very desirable option for golf lovers and anyone who just prefers a nice community setting.

Marina

There are several marinas in the Playa del Carmen area, and homes can be found overlooking the waterways, or a short walk away.  Like the golf communities, these are upscale and often include shopping areas and restaurants.  One marina community (Puerto Aventuras) includes a golf course and offers all basic services, and is more like a village in itself than a gated community.

 

Downtown

There are a few neighborhoods downtown where appealing homes can be found.  These offer a walk-everywhere lifestyle and very convenient access to the shopping, dining and nightlife of Fifth Avenue and modern services like Walmart, banks and good clinics.

 

One community at the north end of downtown is a walk away from the beach and looks very promising to gentrify soon.  Fixer-uppers can be found for very good prices.

 

Homes in Playa del Carmen are an excellent options and buyers will do well to consider a number of locations seriously as viable choices for their upcoming real estate purchase in Paradise.
