Playa del Carmen Real Estate Tips - Top Communities for Condos in the Riviera Maya

When Americans and Canadians buy Playa del Carmen second home, one of the most attractive options is to invest in Playa del Carmen condos for sale.  The following are some of the top communities to consider for a condo purchase.

 

Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras real estate almost stands out as a market of its own; it is a gated community that is more like a small town in itself with all basic services.  It is focused on 3 upscale marinas that have luxury condos overlooking the picturesque waterway.  There is also a nice golf course and a residential community in between that have condo options with beautiful views.

 

Playacar

Playacar is the area’s Beverly Hills; it is an upscale gated community located right next to downtown.  It is built around a very nice, professional golf course (designed by Robert Trent Jones II.)  The streets are lined with trees and there are bike trails running throughout.  There are many excellent condo options in a surprising variety of price ranges.  There is also a very exclusive beachfront portion.

 

Little Italy

This is the north half of downtown.  Low-rise buildings (as in the rest of the region), narrow streets and small city blocks combine with the Italian flavor brought by many expats from that country to offer a taste of Europe.  There are good cafes, excellent restaurants, sidewalk patios, Italian goods shops, local markets and nice bakeries.  It is also home to one of the largest concentration of condos to be found in the area.

 

Coco Beach

At the very north end of downtown, nestled between the trendy Fifth Avenue and the beachfront, this little residential community is very hip and looks like it’s the next happening place in Playa’s central area.  The tourism activities, shops, restaurants and bars are just beginning to appear on the part of Fifth Avenue that defines the west border of the community, and most of downtown is a walk away.

El Cielo

This is a newer gated community just north of town, about 3 miles away from the heart of downtown.  It has plenty of green areas and bike trails running throughout; the beach is a reasonable walk away for avid walkers, or an easy bike ride for everyone else.  Prices for nice, large condos are also surprisingly low.

 

Of course, there are nice condos available elsewhere, but these communities are among the most attractive to consider.
