Playa Del Carmen Rentals
Why do savvy vacationer’s choose downtown Playa Del Carmen rentals?
The demand for affordable apartment and condo rentals in Playa Del Carmen continues to boom as more and more happy people from cold climates discover Playa Del Carmen’s appeal as a cosmopolitan, Caribbean destination with modern services and a low cost of living. In fact, recently I have been meeting lots of people living in Playa from warm climates like Thailand, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands who just love Playa for other reasons besides the great weather and beaches.
I have noticed that short term Playa Del Carmen rentals are so popular now that some people are renting on the other side of the highway very far away from the downtown and the beach to save money. I have visited many of these new, cheap developments on the other side of the highway. Some are OK but others are very cheaply constructed and are in areas difficult to access without encountering heavy traffic. It can take 30-45 minutes with traffic to get into downtown Playa or the beach from some of these developments that are only 5 km from downtown. For this reason, I still really like living in central Playa Del Carmen. Rentals are a little more expensive but you can’t beat the convenience and quality of life. I used to waste hours and hours of my life every day driving to everywhere when I lived in the United States. It’s great to have that free time now to relax at the beach and enjoy my life in Playa.
Typically the short term renters come here to live in an apartment for one to three months to “try out Playa”. Some are retired, but many others are people who have work or businesses that can be operated online from anywhere in the world. Many of these renters are choosing to buy a Playa Del Carmen Condo and make a home here.
Airbnb and other vacation rental websites continue to be the most popular option for these short term renters who, like me, prefer to live in downtown Playa to have a more relaxed, car optional lifestyle.
