Playacar is the original gated community in the Playa del Carmen area, located right next to downtown. This combination of benefits makes it one of the top choices for a Playa del Carmen home that is safe, quiet and pleasant, while still be close to all the tourist activity of downtown. The following are the top 10 reasons to buy a home in Playacar:
1. Safe, Gated Community
Playacar has only 3 entrances and all are gated and manned at all times. Besides general safety, this also means that traffic is low, with only residents and employees entering – no through traffic.
2. Tree Lined Roads
These same roads are lined with large trees providing shade for the roadways, also making them a pleasure for walks.
3. Bike Trails and Green Areas
A bike trail running along the entire main loop makes it easy and safe to enjoy a bike ride on these shaded roads. Green areas, wildlife sanctuaries and Mayan ruins are all nice little places to stop, look and relax.
4. Pools and Big Yards
Playa del Carmen homes in this community usually have large, well-landscaped yards, and if not a private pool, a shared pool in a villa complex. Because of the high level of safety, kids can play in the yard.
5. Large Expat Community
The entire area is home to about 12,000 American expats, plus Canadians and Europeans. Playacar is one of the main focal points for this community. Residents will find it easy to get to know neighbors from back home.
6. Walk to Shopping and Dining
A home near the north entrance will be within walking distance to Fifth Avenue, Playa del Carmen's tourist pedestrian walkway, where there are many stores, dining options and a vibrant nightlife. There are also nearby plazas and shopping like Walmart.
7. Walk to the Beach
Just past Fifth Avenue is one of the world's most beautiful beaches, which was the original and stil the main motivation to enjoy life in Playa del Carmen.
