We just spent a month in Maui and were going to purchase a condo there, however, you are looking @ 300K minimum for a 1 bdrm condo. We are now entertaining the idea of buying a condo close to the beach in Playa del Carmen. Wondering if it is safe and if any other Canadians have purchased a condo in Playa del Carmen. We are working with a realtor from Investment Properties, Mexico. Please, we would welcome any feedback. Currently, you can buy a 2 bdrm condo in Playa del Carmen for around $195K USD.
