Playa del Carmen Construction Update - November 2008
The high season for vacation rentals is nearly upon us and several developers are putting the finishing touches on their projects while some seem to be a bit behind. This entry should be of as much interest to those of you who have booked one of these condominiums for your holiday vacation as to those of you who have invested in these properties. Some of you have asked why we show some of the same properties in every installment. The reason is two-fold. First we show the properties where many of our customers have invested. The other properties are shown by request from our readers. If there is a project you would like to see represented in these updates, just let me know!
The star of the show this year, Azul Fives in Xcalacoco, is exceding all expectations. We toured the property again this week with Buyers looking to pick up an additional unit and we were just blown away. Take a look for yourself! Are we looking forward to Phase 2 of this resort project? Yes, yes we are.
Akoya, in the Pakal enclave of Playacar Phase 2, has reached completion and looks great inside and out. This is a developer we have been very pleased with and will follow with interest in the future. The quality of the finished product is excellent and the level of professionalism shown by their sales and administrative teams is refreshing.
Several downtown projects by the Akoya developer are coming together quickly in the Shangrila/Coco Beach area of Playa del Carmen. Haab, Deva and Arena are all either complete or close to completion. Well priced units are still available.
Just a few hundred meters away, right on Playa del Carmen's beautiful Coco Beach, The Elements and Casa del Mar are also nearing completion, putting finishing touches on exterior elements, pools and landscaping.

From the same developer as Casa del Mar, Rioja is a reasonably priced residencial development at the quiet, far side of Playacar Phase 2. It is a mix of townhomes and condominiums. This is a nice option for a young family making the move to Playa del Carmen. The area is safe and quiet yet just a few minutes drive to downtown Playa and the beach!
And finally, by request, El Faro Condominiums in downtown Playa del Carmen. It seems they have completed many of the units in some sections but parts of the complex remain unfinished. Fingers crossed, the common areas will be completed and any heavy (loud) construction will be done by the Christmas/New Years holidays.
So there you have it. This is where we are in mid-November 2008. What would you like to see for the next update?
