A dream for many of us is to own a piece of Yucatan, which has been made famous through images of luxury condos on Cancun’s beachfront or a beautiful villa in Playa del Carmen. Many people also know about Merida’s colonial Historic Center, or the nearby beachfront property available in the nearby Progreso. The Yucatan Peninsula is rich in many real estate options. But one market which is just now being discovered is the Campeche area, where there is some excellent Mexico Land available at very reasonable prices for those who want to build their own personalized dream home on the beachfront.
Campeche is the third state on the Yucatan Peninsula, shared with Quintana Roo in the east half, where Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel have established a strong reputation of excellent real estate, and places like Tulum and Costa Maya are currently on the rise; the state of Yucatan is shaped like a triangle, wedged between Q. Roo and Campeche, on the north shore of the peninsula, where Merida is the capital, and the main city of the peninsula, and Campeche makes up the western part, on the Gulf shore.
The city of Campeche at the north of the state is the capital, and, similar to Merida about 20 years ago, is a beautiful colonial city with a good deal of character and charm, and even more untapped real estate potential. But this city has something most colonial cities don’t; it’s directly on the oceanfront, adding the charm of seeing fishing boats head out sea in the early morning. Also, because the city was built on the ocean, it was susceptible to raids from Caribbean pirates. Because of this, a castle-like wall was built around the original colonial city, adding a touch of magic. Quaint homes in the colonial city center are a real estate niche that as of yet has received little attention, meaning they are available for very low prices.
The part of the Campeche real estate market that is as currently just starting to receive a little attention from American, Canadian and European buyers is the stretch of beautiful beachfront in the southern half of the state, starting about 45 minutes south of the capital, and stretching down to the state’s second major city, Ciudad del Carmen, where the state ends. Near a town named Champoton a European developer has been investing millions of dollars into a resort / real estate development, where luxury condos are available starting at about $300,000 US. This new development has sparked a “renovation” of Champoton, which is developing and bringing more attention to its quaint seafood restaurants and new boardwalk; turkish citizenship by property Champoton may be place to keep an eye on for real estate possibilities.
A little bit further south of Champoton, there are miles after miles of virgin beachfront. These beaches are wide with warm, soft sand, and, contrary to the reputation of the Gulf of Mexico, the water is a clear, with a turquoise hue. Near some local fishing villages, beachfront land has been turning up for sale, sometimes as low as $55,000 US…
