When choosing to live in another country, Americans and Canadians will usually place very high importance on two factors; cleanliness and safety. For this reason, more and more North Americans continue to buy Playa del Carmen real estate, and live in the city which has been named Mexico's cleanest!
While many Americans and Canadians tend to buy in gated complexes that are very nicely kept up by the maintenance staff, it is also nice to live in a place where you can walk around and enjoy a city that is tidy and visually appealing.
Playa del Carmen has implemented several programs to keep the city both tidy and visually appealing. Daily garbage collection ensures that public garbage cans don't overfill and personal garbage isn't left out on the street. Community programs focus on cleaning up beach accesses, parks and other public areas. Street sweepers are out on a daily basis ensuring that even debris from trees is cleaned up.
This all combines with a very picturesque, provincial small town atmosphere to make living in this town very visually appealing as well. A large number of Italian expats has contributed to a somewhat European flavor.
There is also a specific clean beach program. There are frequent disposal bins on the beach to make it easy to keep the beaches litter free. There is ongoing cleaning work, with workers cleaning both litter and sea-weed from the beach so residents and tourists can make the most of these very wide and soft beaches. The water is constantly monitored, and special efforts are made to prevent any contamination of the sea, keeping it safe for swimming, snorkeling and diving.
Playa del Carmen has also won top awards for having the cleanest beaches.
The combination of these facts mean that you as an American or Canadian can enjoy this city fully while living here. It also means that you have a greater variety of Playa del Carmen real estate to choose from; while there are plenty of excellent gated communities, with beautiful tree-lined streets and nice little parks, you can also choose from a number of downtown neighborhoods which are pleasant and clean.
In addition to being clean, Playa del Carmen is a very safe city – not only is it one of Mexico's safest, but many residents will feel even safer here than in their home cities back in the U. S.
