                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About: I live in Northern Virginia.

                          Why El Taj Beachside:
                          I have been visiting Mexico almost on a yearly basis for 10 or so years. Finally visited Playa Del Carmen and fell in love with the area and decided to buy a vacation property there. Love the beach, the night life, just walking around the area.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The unit itself and the condo complex are beautiful. There is nothing more relaxing then sitting on the balcony as the day ends and having a cold drink. The unit is close to the beach, restaurants and night clubs. You can walk every where and there is so many different places to visit you never get bored. The ocean is beautiful and always seems to be at the perfect temperature.
