It’s Playa del Carmen! one of the fastest growing cities in Latin American, in the Caribbean, tourism all year round from all over the world, currency used for vacation rentals is the USD!

If you really want to make a big investment and have over $500,000.00 USD to spend you may get a beachfront property and those have huge ROI because who doesn’t want to rent beachfront! PLUS anything beachfront rents for at least $300 USD a NIGHT at Least that is during low season…which is only a few weeks of the year because we get tourists all year round!!

If you want to buy something a few blocks back price drops considerably to $200-$400,000.00 USD if you want something with two-three bedrooms, remember as long as you are close to 5th avenue and the beach you are set to go!

Reason 2  

Property taxes in Mexico are super LOW!

You’ll pay something between $50 and $350 annually for your property tax. YES ANNUALLY.

Property taxes will need to be paid on your property yearly. These taxes are paid at the municipal offices that correspond to the location of the property. Property tax is called “impuesto predial”. Your property has a Property Tax Account number, which is called your “Cuenta Catastral”. This is the number you need to provide to the municipal property tax authority in order to get your yearly Property Tax Assessment.

Reason 3 

Good weather all year round! this means…Tourism all year round! 



Playa Del Carmen has a subtropical climate, so its weather ranges from warm to hot for most of the year. The average temperature over the year is about 80ºF or 27ºC





Reason 4.

Diversity, culture, and the best food you will ever have!

The food is amazing, there are over 700 restaurants in Playa! so whatever comes to your mind, anything you might be craving, there is a high possibility you will find it here!
