A dream for many people is to buy a lot directly on the beachfront and have their dream home built – custom design, pool, etc. The good news is that there are good locations on the Yucatan Peninsula where nice Mexico land for sale can be found for very good prices.
Such locations are usually more “off the beaten track” but can nevertheless hold very high appeal for those who enjoy a quieter, less expensive lifestyle. The following are two examples that buyers can consider.
Campeche is the west coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, next to the State of Yucatan, and sort of across from the Caribbean Coast where locations like Cancun and Playa del Carmen are located. The main city of the state is a small, beautiful colonial city, also called Campeche; the colonial downtown is surrounded by fort walls built in the 17th century. The city has been very well preserved – in fact, they say it is one of the best.
The city of Campeche is directly on the waterfront; the beaches start about 20 minutes south of the city. Tourism has not yet reached this area to any large extent. For this reason, properties directly next to the sand of the beach can be found for surprisingly low prices. Buyers can have a nice, high-quality home built for reasonable prices.
Cost Maya is the other side of the Peninsula on the Caribbean Coast, about 4 hours south of Cancun. It’s separated from the more famous tourist areas by a large, nature biosphere reserve called Sian Kaan. Costa Maya is very quiet, with only a handful of cruises arriving to the main village of Mahahual now and then. The rest of the coast is quiet residential communities and virgin beaches. Mahahual has some restaurants, small grocery stores and other basic services. A more complete range of services can be found about an hour and a half away in the small city of Chetumal.
Since the area is very undeveloped, lots directly on the beachfront, or a row or two back, can be found for incredibly low prices. As in Campeche, prices for construction of a beautiful dream home are very accessible.
Living out a dream lifestyle in a beautiful home on the beach is not only for millionaires; average Americans and Canadians can easily make this dream reality on the beautiful beaches of Yucatan!
