Real estate in the area includes some of the best options in Playa del Carmen Condos, ideally located between Fifth Avenue and the beachfront, which include roof top patios with pools and ocean views. Some luxury level condos developments are currently available in the pre-construction phase starting as low as $250,000.
Those who buy condos in Little Italy will enjoy a uniquely tasteful design, not only in the condo development they are buying, but also in the area as a whole. The large number of Italian residents and business owners in the area have given the neighborhood a European style and elegance. The neighborhood also includes many stylish restaurants, not only Italian and Mexican, but also Argentenian, Lebanese and Thai, to give only a few examples. There are also cafes and many little shops, such as home decor stores and wine shops.
In addition to beachfront condos, buyers can find Playa del Carmen Homes in the surrounding areas, again only a short walk away from all the benefits of living near Fifth Avenue. The homes range from traditional Mexican style to modern, contemporary styles.
To complement the interesting lifestyle presented by the shops and restaurants of Fifth Avenue, the community also hosts a large number of Playa del Carmen’s annual events. Among the most famous is the Riviera Maya International Jazz Festival, which takes place directly on the beachfront, specifically on Mamitas Beach, which is about a 5 minute walk away. Several new programs include a live music festival with dancing; for any non-dancer, there will be dance classes as a part of the event. Every Thursday there is a display of local art, including photography, paintings and sculptures; at the end of April and early May 2010, the first anniversary and Earth Day will be celebrated through a special contest. Another new program is Family Sunday, which is an integrated project that combines tourism with education, fun, and family activities.
As is the case with many Playa del Carmen communities, buying real estate in Little Italy is much more than just owning a property; it’s a lifestyle that defines the comfort, relaxation you feel in your condo and in the surrounding neighborhood.
