Merida Real Estate is an area known for its traditional Mexican homes near its charming colonial city center, and along with the surrounding Yucatan Real Estate area (of which it is the cultural and economic center), it also offers a broad range of property types – beachfront condos, old haciendas, state-of the-art homes in new gated communities, comfortable homes in small villages and much more. To add to a unique charm and a variety of real estate, Merida and Yucatan enjoy a slew of activities to enjoy as a part of day to day life. Whether you enjoy sight seeing, fishing, diving, sports, history, art, or live music you will find something for your taste in the area.
For history and culture, you couldn’t ask for much more than the rich history of the Yucatan peninsula. Real estate owners have the choice of visiting the landmarks of the Ancient Mayan Civilization, including the world famous Chichen Itza (one of the modern wonders of the world) and numerous other colonial cities, such as the very traditional Valladolid, or the city of Campeche which was built as a fort to protect against pirate raids.
The oceanfront provides many water activities, such as diving or boating, and there is also a very unique flamingo reserve a few hours away where the birds can be seen in their natural habitat.
Almost all Merida options are also close to excellent sports facilities. While private, gated communities will often include their own tennis courts, etc., individual properties also enjoy the benefit of an excellent public sports infrastructure, both for watching the local soccer games, and playing sports of your choice. The rest of Yucatan real estate also enjoys good facilities, and will soon have access to even more; during 2010 the state will be investing about 3.5 million dollars for sports infrastructure in various communities, including Merida.
For real estate owners, these options of activities are a lifestyle bonus for the quality properties available in Merida and Yucatan; in many cases the properties here are priced very competitively. Thousands of Americans and Canadians have already chosen the Yucatan as their home, and as the benefits of living here become more clear, even more will continue to do so.
