When Americans and Canadians move to Playa, they generally buy a condo Playa Del Carmen. When it comes to the prime locations there are two popular destinations for expat real estate: downtown and Playacar. And the two couldn’t be more unique.
For those who want a hustling and bustling lifestyle—a condo in the downtown core is ideal. But for those looking for a laid-back lifestyle surrounded by greenery and families…then Playacar is your ticket.
Playacar is a gated community where foreigners and nationals alike find solitude—and security for their loved ones. Many of the condos wind around the picturesque golf course, and feature cobblestone roads, walking paths, chic restaurants and cafes and oh so much more.
There are a number of great options for a condo Playa Del Carmen…
The Akoya is one of the newest developments in Playacar—and likely one of the last big ones, seeing as available Playacar land has begun to dwindle. Like many of the city’s top condos it has resort-like amenities, however the Akoya has the large grounds to support that claim.
The 28 two-bedroom units at the Akoya Playacar have a dedication to modern touches that give the Akoya its signature look. The floor-to-ceiling windows and dark-colored wood accents are just a couple of the many lovely touches that help make the Akoya a real estate hotspot.
The Paseo Del Sol is a truly unique Playacar real estate opportunity as it is the only resort-like condo development on the southern side of Playacar. This makes it close to the beach, the beach clubs of all the all-inclusive resorts across the street, and the amenities close to the tourists.
The Paseo Del Sol property has an extremely large pool that weaves around the complex, which is just one of the many features that make you think you’re staying in a resort. Beyond the resort-esque amenities, the Spanish colonial terracotta roof and the white walls separate Paseo Del Sol from its modern counterparts—a fact adored by its residents.
The Vaiven is another recently built development. It combines modern architecture with wood accents that give it you an immediate high-end impression once you step on the grounds. With a gorgeous blue-tile pool that inspires serenity, one look at this place and you’ll be ready to call it home too.
There are plenty of amenities and (over 3,000 square feet of) common areas to keep you busy—and relaxed—year round, and the units are high-quality and elegant.

I used American Realty to help me buy my condo in Playa del Carmen… The first thing that I would like to say is that the whole staff was incredibly helpful. Doing a real estate transaction in a foreign country can be a very daunting experience and I don’t think I would have gone through with it without all the information that I was given as they walked me through the process. From initially explaining my options and the process, to finding the actual condo (that I love) and closing the transaction, they were patient with all my questions and made me feel very comfortable with my decision. My condo is about 4 blocks from the beach and very near the center of town and I couldn’t be happier! My family loves coming to Playa del Carmen and now we have our own place when we visit. A condo in the Caribbean that we can call our own and one that makes me a decent income while we aren’t here. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with my experience and would highly recommend using American Realty to buy or sell any real estate in Playa del Carmen.
I am not one to sit down and do a review unless I feel it was worth the effort. I flew to PDC in hopes of meeting a real estate agent I had set up before flying down. Two days in, no word. I was out walking and stumbled on to a the American Realty office on 5th Ave. American Realty and met Matthew. (this is their satellite office) I told him my price range. Next day bam! Looking at units in my price range and not trying to up sell. Visited a couple buildings under construction and made my decision to buy in PDC. The size suited me best. He made this an incredibly EASY buy for me. He set up the meetings with the lawyer, notary and translator. He picked me up and drove me to the lawyer office and their own office for paperwork. People fear buying in a foreign country. Mexico is fast, safe and secure. Everything is laid out in front of you. Money is incredibly easy to transfer in escrow, this was my biggest fear. What if it disappears?? Well it doesn't. It goes to a US company then back to Mexico. Lawyers act on my behalf to pay the developer as per terms. Matthew made all of this incredibly easy. He is efficient, on time and knows this area. Follow up questions are answered promptly. Many agents get their commission and you never hear from them. I asked Matthew if he could drive to the condo to update me with some photos. No problem for him! That is customer service. I recommend any Canadian or foreigner to meet him if you are planning to invest in PDC or area. Dealing with a fellow Canadian made it much more enjoyable and trusting. I am happy with the end result and happy that I met him. Feb 8 2019

If you are looking for a property in Playa del Carmen, I would highly recommend American Realty! Theo and the office were brilliant in mapping out our needs and found a great property for us! Their services from the very first moment we met in their office on 5th Ave, till signing the contract were outstanding. They picked us up from the place we stayed at, drove us around introducing the different areas of Playa. Were accommodating and patient with our kids when we took them to view some of the properties. We got all the help we needed with the lawyers and managing the different bits of the contracting process. They have been taking care of us like old friends - and even now that the deal has closed they check in every once in a while, which is very nice. 🙂 So all in all - excellent service and great people! Thanks Theo and American Realty. 🙂 Szilvia & Zoltan - Nov 11 2019

My Wife and I worked with Theo during our house hunting trip in September 2019. Process was completed in one day. He showed us exactly what we were looking for in the price range requested. Did not waste our time. Offer made and accepted. Theo worked with us during the entire process lining up the legal team to help us through the process of purchasing property in Mexico. Theo has been there to help us with any and all questions we might have and has been there for us AFTER the sale with questions not related to the purchase of the property (getting a car, setting up WIFI, VPN, TV service, electric, etc). We got a great place and a new friend out of the deal. Highly recommend Theo and America Realty if you are buying property in Mexico. Feb 26 2020

Everyother agency turned us away and said that we could not find what we were looking for in our price range. We believed it until American Realty was recommended to us through a random encounter. Feeling defeated and thought we’d take one last shot we talked with one of the agents from Canada and within ten minutes after walking into his office he explained that he may have something. So we set up a viewing the next day and sure enough he found it! Hit it right on the head. Amazing job! I’d highly recommend their services for anyone interested in real estate in Playa Del Carmen.
