Medicare in Mexico

el faro condos - beach club

Apart from all the great Real Estate Deals in Playa del  Carmen we try always to  keep our eyes open for more  helpful information about living and investing in Mexico.

Yesterday we cam across an email from Deanne, one of our  Realtor Colleagues here in town and what she said, was  definitely interesting and I am sure it is worth digging into  some more background information about this interesting  news.

When thinking about Medicare, Mexico has lots of surprising facts to offer. More than just Sun, Beach and Margaritas, which usually helps to cure most problems, but not all of course 😉

Here is what she wrote : Another great reason to live here part time or retire  here!
Expats can easily qualify for Mexico’s special government sponsored health insurnace program reducing the average US citizens insurance expenditure by thousands of Dollars each year.

Americans may be able to use their Medicare and Medicaid insurance to access Mexico health care within one year, reported Bloomberg news yesterday.

The move would make Mexico real estate even more attractive to Americans looking to buy homes and retire south of the border.

Bruno Ferrari, chief executive officer of Promexico, Mexico’s foreign investment agency, told the news service that “authorities are interested” in the idea.

He said ten US and Canadian companies have shown an interest in building Mexico health care facilities for Americans looking for low cost treatment.

With the US health care debate heating up, the Mexican health care system is hitting the headlines and more Americans are opting for ‘medical tourism’.

“This would be a great opportunity for the industry in this country … There are developers interested in creating new cities,” said Ferrari.

According to Promexico, some forms of health care in the US can cost 12 times as much as in Mexico.

Figures from the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services predict total spending by the insurance programs will amount to $889.1 billion in 2009, about a third of all health care spending in the US.

Some are surprised by the extremely high standards of health care in Mexico, but when they realize that many of the top Mexican medical staff are trained in US universities and hospitals, the reasons become obvious.

Many health insurance companies already offer policies to foreigners buying homes in Mexico and the Mexican government’s IMSS health care program is also available with excellent basic cover at a very low price.

close to Playa del Carmen, where you see most of the real estate sales happening, you can find Xpu Ha, a small, private bay, where many locals enjoy amazing weekends with their families

One of the beautiful things to do when living in Playa del Carmen or staying here on your summer vacation, is to go and visit Xpu Ha. The Riviera Maya receives Millions of tourist since many years, so there is hardly any secret spot, where the locals go on their free time, but Xpu Ha is the closest it gets if you look for a hidden paradise.

Just imagine the most amazing beach with the most unbelievable tones of blue and turquoise in the caribbean waters, a few really simple beach clubs, good ceviche, a metal bucket with lots of ice and cold corona beer, only a few tourist and a lot of sun and blue sky. Actually, just check out this picture, than you know what i am talking about.

Xpu Ha is just 10 miles south of Playa del Carmen and there are only small, almost hidden access roads towards the beach.

You will have to pay a small fee to enter the properties and drive down a dirt road until you get to the beach club, there are actually 2-3 of them to choose. The same bay has small boutique hotels like El Cielo and Esencia, where travelers from all over the world enjoy the relaxed and private atmosphere. O r just click on the picture.

One of the bets things to do there is to rent a snorkel equipment and swim out just a 100 meter to one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the Riviera Maya. You will find amazing underwater landscapes and a wide array of different fishes in all colors you can imagine. Very untouched and even better if you like to explore a bit more, there is a ecopark close by where you can snorkel in a lagoon as well.

There is actually no real estate available for sale in this particular area, but actually, that is a good thing, considering, the beauty and remoteness of this secret location 🙂

Of course we would like to recommend you great spots to buy property close by, like Akumal, Puerto Aventuras and of course Tulum.

Today we walked on Avenida Constituyentes,  towards the spot where the ferries to Cozumel  stop, the beautiful boulevard between The Royal  and Gran Puerto Real Hotel.

It can not be much better than this, and here you  can see one of the reason, why most people living  in Playa del Carmen are always a bit happier than  in the rest of the world.

Real Estate News from Beachfront Community in Playa del Carmen

affordabel beach front real estate

mexico has so many places where one wants to live and invest into properties

Last week I was touring last week a two clients

from Texas,

and we looked for Beachfront Real Estate close

to Playa del Carmen. We drove down the entire

Rivera Maya and saw hacienda style villas at the

Ocean in Tankah and Akumal, luxurious 4

bedroom  condos at the beach for less than 825k

in Puerto Aventuras, went to Tulum and visited

Mansions,where Movie Stars enjoyed the sandy

beach.

But maybe the nicest spot to find great and affordable  Real Estate right at or close to the beach is Playacar Fase 1. Many of my clients just love this relaxed small and private community in Playa del Carmen. It is really easy to miss this tiny entrance between all the pick ceiba trees, between all the shops and tourist you hardly see it, but once you are in, you leave all this behind you and enter in a very unique community with 24/7 guarantee to relax and have a great time.

Because of the smart detail in their construction by laws, every property line has a different height and this most homes have a perfect view over the ocean. The streets are hardly used by cars and you see always a security guard on a bicycle or a gardener maintaining the perfect tropical landscape and sometimes tourist passing by to the beach.

The Real Estate Sales have been very good in this community over the last years as prices are good and the Homes and Condos for Sale very exclusive.

Playa del Carmen Town is right next door, so you can walk to 5th Avenue, the ferry to Cozumel, and start enjoying the restaurants and beach clubs right from the small park, where the little church and the bus station are located.

This proximity to town and at the same time having the tranquil feeling of being away from any civilization and just in the Caribbean, makes it a perfect vacation rental destination and most of these properties cater to very privileged customers all year long.

You can check out one of the featured houses for sale and click on the picture or visit our Playacar Real Estate site.

Of course don’t forget to keep track of all our properties for sale listed in Akumal, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Tankah and Tulum and visit us on Facebook and Youtube.
