Here we share how you can get to the Emerald Coast of the Yucatan this season.

If you are ready to explore the Mexican real estate market in the Yucatan, take time this summer to travel down and see where an affordable luxury beach lifestyle is available.  No need to travel to Cancun and drive up. You can fly into Merida, Yucatan state’s cultural capital.

We have beautiful panoramic ocean view properties for sale. Chicxulub Beach and Chelem are located in the Peninsula of Yucatan north of the city of Merida and 45 minutes from the Merida International Airport (MID).
