A Real Estate Browse, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Puerto Aventuras. (Aerial Map by as displayed outside Puerto Aventuras Properties Real Estate office).

It is not unusual when we travel to randomly visit an open house or real estate sales office to get a feel for the local housing market. We're not serious potential buyers, just curious looky-loos.  This condominium development, Punta Roca (bottom right in the aerial photo above), randomly caught our eye even though they don't have a sandy oceanfront beach but instead, a rocky coral oceanfront. Here's Amy and the realtor on the third floor balcony of the last unit to be sold. It's a two bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, marble floors, high end finishes, all-glass-walls-toward-the-ocean kind of place.  Asking  price $493,000 USD. (Very small bumps on the horizon are cruise ships docked at Cozumel).

Looking the other direction (south).

Amy testing out the hammock on one of the ocean-side decks. The next land masses straight out after Cozumel are the Cayman Islands about 400 miles away, and then Jamaica another 250 miles after that.

I don't know why but, I expected Gollum's head to pop-up from a crevice along this path - I also expected to encounter a few Hobbitses....... but alas, no.
