Our apartment and live in Cancun
At the beginning I should mention that the living standard is not comparable to the German standard. What I personally miss a lot, however subtle it maybe sounds, is the cellar, beloved by almost every German. The basement does not exist in Mexico and we do not even have a proper storeroom.
The buildings are not only different from their appearance, the construction is not comparable to the Germans. I do not mean to say that the regular houses and flats are terrible, I prefer to call them ‘getting used to’. Anyone who has ever been here will understand what I mean by that. However, there are also some good areas where you can find really nice property.
My boyfriend and I live for the local conditions quite “luxurious”. In my eyes very European and normal as I know it from Düsseldorf.
We live in the “Malecón Towers“. The condominium is still relatively new, modern with lots of glass and kept in white. Each tower has a communal pool and a gym. We also have, like the hotels, a reception with security staff. That sounds a little strange, but this is normal. Almost every residential complex has that. Visitors must give a legitimation on entering and sign up in a kind of guest book, with time and signature. When they are leaving the building, the visitor signs out and gets back his legitimacy. What is practical for me, that there are taken all my packages and waiting for my online orders is eliminated.
We live in a spacious 3 room apartment with two bathrooms and a large balcony. The balcony with its view is my personal favorite place in the apartment.
We look directly at the “Laguna Nichupté” and the “Malecón Tajamar”. On the other side we have ocean view and we can look up to the “Isla Mujeres”. At night we see the skyline of the “Zona Hotelaria”.
What should I say, I love this view and that’s why I really wanted to live in these towers.
The infrastructure is perfect for me, because I do not have my own car here in Mexico.
We live directly above the shopping center “Plaza las Americas”. There we have everything, gym, cinema, several shops and a supermarket. What is the highlight for me, of course, that I can drive with the shopping cart to my apartment. Bye bye carry bags!
Oh, and i live directly about Zara, how happy I am, i probably do not need to explain in more detail. Daily browsing goes without saying.
To the beach we need about 15 minutes by car or bus. This is convenient at the weekend, as on Saturdays always we have “beach day” and on Sundays always we have “pool time” in our program.
