Buyers searching Mexico MLS listings will find a very wide range of excellent properties available, and Playa del Carmen MLS among the forefront of the choices within Mexico. Over the past decade, this town has build a strong and real-to-life reputation for top quality real estate with excellent location. An important part of this is that Playa del Carmen Real Estate offers much more than just excellent properties; buyers here will find a lifestyle to match the world-famous beaches, with high quality restaurants, international shopping and many events and activities. One example of this aspect of Playa del Carmen is its growing film culture.


For real estate buyers who love going to the movies, Playa del Carmen has two new, very modern, large screen movie theaters, which play the latest box office hits in English. However, one aspect which MLS listings might not mention is that Playa del Carmen is also host to two international film festivals each year, for those who like to try out an international film now and then.

The Fourth Annual Riviera Maya Film Festival

The Cancun and Riviera Maya Film Festival is takes place every November, and is shared with Cancun and Mexico City. It is the only film festival with an official competition and a permanent exhibition of movies about "Ecology and Human Development." While this appeals especially to those who are concerned with pollution and related topics, there are many other categories and film types included. The festival has currently been in existence for three years. During the four day festival cultural and environmental activities also take place. In 2009 Japan was the guest country and had the honor of movies by the filmmaker Takeshi Kitano. By June, the 2010 program will be ready, which will include "Experimental Mexico Cancun Lounge."


Another film festival is the "Underground Film Festival," which will hold its fifth annual celebration in October, with four days of festival. At this festival, different cinematic styles are welcomed and encouraged, with competitions in the categories of Animation, Experimental, Documentary, Fiction or Silent Movies, which each bring together hundreds of filmmakers.


Besides the exhibition of short films during the festival, there are film workshops, samples of films, lectures and musical recitals, as was the case last year, the recital of Alex Otaola soundtrack to the silent film "Man With The Movie Camera" by director Dziga Vertov. All programming will be presented in August. The projections are organized in Playa del Carmen and at night there are jazz, rock concerts.


These film festivals are only one example of the many activities and events which take place in Playa del Carmen, which range from fishing tournaments to golf tournaments, to traditional Mexican holiday celebrations. For buyers searching MLS listings in Mexico, Playa del Carmen will definitely offer an excellent lifestyle to match the high-quality properties they find.
