There is so much more to Playa than just the beach!!!
Something that those of us who are lucky enough to live here this is very easy to put into words. It’s a feel, a cosmopolitan atmosphere that is not found anywhere else on earth, a mixture of Latin, North American, and European cultures that come together in a relaxed beachfront scene. What we can define is some of the activities that this culture meshing has provided, including world class shopping, dining, diving, sailing, fishing, golfing, adventure, cenotes and of course one of the best nightlife’s anywhere!
For us it truly was love at first sight. We think you will agree….
Yet while the clear turquoise blue water is the star o the Riviera Maya, the spotless white powder sand that will never burn your feet is a extremely strong supporting cast member. It is the textbook definition of “Paradise”
Don’t allow the stars of the program steal the entire spotlight. Present are countless other reasons why so many Americans and Canadians are relocating or calling the Riviera Maya their home away from home.
The secret is quality of life, this is what motivates us to live here, there’s hands down no better place!
Situated on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula precisely between Cancun and Tulum is Playa del Carmen, or “Playa” as the locals refer to it.
Playa has something for everyone. A diverse, seductive town that mixes the Mexican flair with a Caribbean mood inspired from cultures from every part of around the globe. The cultural experiences are copious but what truly makes this city consequently only one of its kind are its people. Anywhere you set out the locals (who can be from North America, Europe, and Latin America or yet even Asia ironically) are extremely welcoming and friendly. You continually get the sensation you are part of the community.
We hate to break this to you but,….the cost of living is 40% lower than anywhere in Canada, plus incredible year-round weather, great food, plentiful golf courses, a budding art community, world-class medical facilities, and an International Airport offering daily flights to the U.S. and Canada (more than any other airport in Mexico), Riviera Maya is one of the most livable areas anywhere for Canadians and Americans. We’re just saying, so why don’t you be the judge for yourself?
