Community View: Amapas

Finding the right neighborhood for your lifestyle is the first step in securing your ideal property in Puerto Vallarta. One of the things that makes Vallarta such a popular destination for real estate investment in Mexico is that there is truly an area ideal for every need, be it a family home close to schools, a private turnkey vacation getaway, an income-generating rental property in a prime tourism location, or your dream retirement abode with the views and amenities you’ve worked hard to deserve. This week, we’re talking about the popular, upscale area of Amapas.

Amapas offers some of the most desirable real estate in Puerto Vallarta with a location close to Old Town, popular Los Muertos Beach, and its own lovely and more serene Amapas Beach. Nestled into the Sierra Madre and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, Amapas is comprised of Upper Amapas – the section located above the two-lane coastal highway – and Lower Amapas, which is along the ocean.

With some of the best ocean and sunset views in the region, homes in Amapas consist primarily of private homes and condos, alongside many impressive luxury villas featuring traditional Mexican architecture as well as ultra-modern design.

Because of the close proximity to Old Town and quiet environment, Amapas is a favorite location for both vacation and retired homeowners, as well as for investors as it is a popular area on the vacation rental market. With the Puerto Vallarta real estate market continuing to be extremely active, properties in this area move quickly once listed because of strong buyer interest.

A new project, Las Verandas de Amapas, will soon be released by Playa Lifestyle, the developer behind the hugely successful URBAN and URBAN II developments. A pre-launch release of some of the best of the developments’ 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom residences, all featuring oversized terraces and most with panoramic vistas, is available for a limited time exclusively through Tropicasa Realty. During this special pre-release, those registered for the project will have preferred access to homes at the lowest prices ever offered by the developer.
