One of the main motivations for you as a retiree to choose a Mexican retirement lifestyle is the rich traditions in culture and history which this country offers. This is why one Mexican retirement community in Playa del Carmen, La Escondida, is including on-site access to tour services as one of its features.
These services are part of a series of features that will help residents in La Escondida enjoy a complete lifestyle without having to leave the comfort of home and also benefit the most from the activities the surrounding area has to offer. This boutique community has been designed to allow residents to form a real “community" atmosphere, getting to know neighbors, providing multiple areas for activities, and most of all spending quality time together with family and friends.
The tour services are an extension of the idea, providing group outings, and a way for you to continue enjoying meaningful experiences with new friends.
Some of the most popular attractions in the surrounding area include:
Mayan Pyramids – Besides the world-famous site at Chichen Itza, which is about 3 hours away, there are over 80 sites on the Yucatan Peninsula. One of the most spectacular is about an hour away, with the main pyramid perched up on a cliff overlooking the beach.
Colonial Cities – The city of Merida is about 4 hours away, and has the second largest colonial city center in Mexico. There are a number of smaller colonial cities as well, some still very undiscovered by tourists with very beautiful town centers, and excellent local restaurants.
Eco-Parks – These are theme parks with a focus on nature and culture. One very nearby park, Xcaret, hosts an annual celebration for the Day of the Dead, a more culturally rich version of Halloween, as well as a number of other events.
Wildlife Reserves – About an hour south begins the Sian Ka'an Wildlife Reserve, which has been named a world-heritage site as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. 2 hours northwest on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula is Rio Lagartos, where there is a natural flamingo habitat accessible by a guided boat ride.
Accessing information about these and other attractions, as well as actually visiting them, will be easy and effortless.
Some other features which make La Escondida attractive to retirees include:
- large green spaces and common areas (72% of the development)
- a tranquil secure community with only one access point providing maximum safety
- lower density of properties providing more privacy and a small-community atmosphere
- clubhouse, pools, putting greens and a gym
- scheduled in town transportation service eliminating parking hassles and the need for rental cars
