Yucatan real estate offers a wide variety of property types, ranging from quaint little colonials, to countryside haciendas or modern condos on the beachfront; one option not to be overlooked, however, is that of Yucatan land.

The following are a few of the possibilities.Residential Lots in Merida.Merida is a charming colonial city, with many modern conveniences. Many residents prefer to enjoy this extraordinary combination, but from the comfort of a custom built their own liking and style. The majority of lots are available in the newer development areas on the edge of the city, but distance to the city center is still only a 15-20 minute drive.Commercial Lots in Merida.Merida is also also the business center of the Yucatan Peninsula, and is has a thriving economy.

These towns retain the traditional charm of Yucatan, but have not yet boomed, offering many land options only a few rows back from the beach, and often even directly on the beachfront, for very accessible prices.Large Countryside Lots.An option ideal for a small, personal ranch or simply an estate like the one you’ve always dreamed of, these lots are available for very accessible prices, giving residents innumerable options to create their countryside escape.
