On the heels of my inaugural blog (new word of the week: inblogural) that focused largely on beach volleyball in Hawaii and at the risk of reading more like a travel log than business blog, I am compelled to highlight my recent trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
What a scene! Visiting Fifth Avenue, with its remarkable shopping and dining, is worth the trip on its own. Bargains galore, an abundance of beach/ocean activities from which to choose, a very high level of customer service and a great overall vibe in the community will have me going back soon.
It was nice to see the waves crashing from our condo and be 20 metres from the volleyball court, but especially nice was that, thanks largely to a lofty loonie (1.0466 US at last report), my pitches to realtors and developers in Mexico and Hawaii were successful enough to easily justify return trips.
I toured several real estate developments, and given Playa’s ideal climate, relatively low prices and the recent dramatic increase in the power of the Canadian dollar, I truly believe it’s a great time to look at investing in a piece of this Mexican paradise.
I found the locals very friendly and helpful, particularly realtor Lilia Martha Cisneros Muller, who kindly invited me to a Red Cross fund-raiser that provided a fabulous night of live music and dining at Mamitas Beach Club.
