Last week I spent some time trying to point out the highlights and benefits of living in Playa del Carmen. I often run into clients who are trying to make comparisons about different locations for real estate in the Mexican Riviera; which is why I want to point out the differences of each area, and how each feature may fit differently into your lifestyle.
Every city and town in Mexico and in the Riviera Maya holds something wonderful but different! Asking questions and doing the research is good! You should always do your homework and find a location that is best for your own personal needs.
Today I want to touch on Cancun living! Cancun is definitely bigger in comparison to Playa del Carmen. There are many attractions, restaurants, entertainment and shopping options.
It differs from Playa del Carmen in the fact that in many cases you will need to use motorized transportation to get from one place to another. This does not mean you have to travel far to get from point A to point B but it may be a matter of taking a five minute ride by car, taxi or bus.
What you can expect in Cancun!
Cancun has two major shopping malls as well as some smaller plazas with shopping and restaurants available. The restaurant options, all over Cancun, are very international and you will see many well-known
Cancun was an original tourist destination for people from all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe! And because of this, it continued to be built with Americanized comforts in mind.
Cancun is also big on entertainment! Located right in the hotel zone you will find many major nightclubs, bars, and entertainment venues which operate on a daily bases! Also, some of the major resorts have theaters which are venues for shows and concerts.
In comparison to other big cities all over the globe, Cancun has a city living feel while still having the pleasure of being on or near the beach. You will see many high rise buildings and condos in Cancun which is not likely in other areas of the Riviera Maya!
If you are looking for property that is directly overlooking the ocean, Cancun has plenty of possibilities for you! There are some nice and affordable condos directly on the beach including resort style amenities! Places like Amara offer high quality beach front living at a fraction of the cost!
Cancun is one of the most recognized tourist destinations in Mexico. Because of this you will expect that there will always be plenty of travelers heading that way, keeping the buzz and business of Cancun plentiful! If you like the city life and to be in the action, Cancun is a nice option for you! Lots of tourism means you are likely to always meet new friends!
Easy airport access!
With an international airport located right in Cancun, getting in and out is that much easier! Whether you are going on vacation to a different destination within Mexico, or you are traveling back to your home country to visit friends and family, getting to the airport quickly is a very nice perk!
Why else do you go to Cancun in the first place? Cancun has gorgeous beaches and is known for its perfectly blue and clear waters! Also, right from Cancun you have direct ferry access to the beautiful Isla Mujeres which has more incredible beaches! If you dream of living on the beach Cancun certainly has plenty to offer!
