Playa del Carmen is located on the Caribbean side of the Yucatan Peninsula, just south of Cancun. Because of the wide, soft beaches, with the turquoise Caribbean water behind, Playa del Carmen condos have become a favorite, not only in the area, but on a worldwide level. Buyers from United States, Canada, Italy and Argentina have taken notice of the benefits of living in a condominium on one of the world's most beautiful beaches.
This is why it is significant that although the market is healthy, some owners have reduced their prices for quick sale. Currently price reductions of 20% or more can be found, for savings of close to $ 40,000 USD! For buyers this means two things; one is enjoying life on the beachfront at a lower cost, the other is amazing investment opportunities.
Life on the beachfront in Playa del Carmen is like nothing else. Beside a balcony with views of the ocean and the island of Cozumel in the distance, owners can enjoy walking down Fifth Avenue, the city's main tourism street with shops, restaurants and cafés, that runs between 1-3 blocks back from the beach. A Playa del Carmen luxury condo in Playacar directly on the beachfront, the area's original gated community usually sell around $ 500,000; with a price reduction, one of these could be found for well under $ 450,000. This area is right next to downtown, combining all of these conveniences with the quiet privacy of an upscale neighborhood.
For a price slightly lower, a downtown condos only a block or two away Fifth Avenue (and another block or two from the beach) can be found for less than $ 180,000 USD. Some reductions will bring this price down to less than $ 140,000 USD! Although not directly on the beachfront, a condo in this location will enjoy very short walking distance to Fifth Avenue, the beach, Walmart, many little taco shops and restaurants, and a variety of shops. Rooftop pools and patios also provide views of the ocean and Cozumel.
Whether you are buying luxury directly on the beachfront on a mid-sized budget, or high-quality condo a few blocks back on a smaller budget, Playa del Carmen condos offer much more than just a good property; they offer a lifestyle. Along the downtown amenities, the surrounding area includes many benefits such as golf courses, marinas, large-screen movie theaters that play most movies in English, new malls, high-quality hospitals, theme parks with an ecological focus, Mayan pyramids and much more . There are also some wonderful colonial cities within a couple of hours.
