Many real estate buyers like the idea of finding an undiscovered (but appealing) area, especially if that area is up-and-coming.   Many areas like this exist in Mexico beachfront for sale.   Two of the most exciting markets - Costa Maya real estate and Campeche real estate - are located on the Yucatan Peninsula.


Costa Maya

Costa Maya is the southernmost strip of the beautiful beaches which have made the Mexican Caribbean's northern half (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, etc.) Latin America's most important tourism region.   Unlike the north half, however, Costa Maya is virtually non-existent on the international radar.   Any given expat could name all the Americans and Canadians living in the area, and would probably know them all fairly well.   On the beach road that offers access from the main village of Mahahual to the tiny communities scattered along the virgin beaches, you are more likely to have to stop for goats crossing than for traffic.

Real Estate

While it seems fairly likely that Costa Maya is going remain more hidden for the next while, this fact is actually appealing for those looking for a really quiet lifestyle “away from it all.”   It also means that prices for direct beachfront real estate are very low.   Lots condos and homes can be found for surprisingly low prices, even compared to the rest of Mexico that is already very competitive.



Pretty much across the Peninsula from Costa Maya is the state of Campeche and its beaches.   This area is only a short drive south from the better-known and larger colonial city of Merida.   The state of Campeche likewise has its own colonial city (also called “Campeche” just like the state) which is smaller, but (according to many visitors) better kept up.   The city itself is located directly on the beachfront, and a long strip of virtually unknown beaches with soft sand and warm water start about half an hour south.


Real Estate

Lots can be found for extraordinary prices along the beachfront.   Upscale development with golf courses and marinas is already beginning to appear suggesting that this region could be a part of Yucatan's ongoing growth and consolidation as one of the most important tourism regions world-wide; this would be good news for investors!   In any case, Campeche offers a comfortable beachfront lifestyle that is easily accessible for low prices.


Buyers looking for undiscovered beachfronts that offer an excellent lifestyle and low prices will do well to put these two locations near the top of their list.
