Overview – Playa del Carmen Real Estate

Playa del Carmen is located in the State of Quintana Roo, almost half way between Cancun to the north and Tulum to the south.

Once a small fishing village, Playa del Carmen – often nicknamed Playa – has rapidly emerged as one of the most popular resort destinations on the Riviera Maya on the Caribbean coast of Mexico.

In the early days of tourism in the region, Playa del Carmen was the gateway to the island of Cozumel which lies just off the coast.

Visitors headed to Cozumel to snorkel or dive over the incredible reefs.

Playa del Carmen has since developed into a destination in its own right.

A wide selection of popular hotels and resorts have been developed, there are several excellent golf courses in close proximity, as well as lively restaurants, bars and shops centered on Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue).

Unlike Cancun, which is much larger, the restaurants, bars and shops extend almost all the way on to the white sand beach, making both town and beach very accessible and attractive to visitors.

The most popular beach is Playa Mamitas which is a trendy destination and setting for the Mamitas Beach Club.

The waters also continue to draw visitors from around the world, not only for snorkeling and diving, but also for water sports such as windsurfing, jet skiing and kayaking.

With a flourishing tourism sector, Playa del Carmen and the nearby gated residential neighborhood of Playacar have also caught the attention of international property buyers.

From a real estate perspective, the town is a hive of activity with multiple condominium developments and gated communities in various stages of construction.
