I am one of the owners of a house in Playas Palmeras that is not livable. I have lost over 200,000 because the developer is a crook. He is married to a Mexican and he is living off the money he took from all of us. We have no electricity and this is now 14 years. We have all lost everything and we cannot sue him because the Mexican government is crooked too. Beware of what you do. I have been trying for 14 years to get my money back because my contract is a phony but no on one will help me. I am 84 and that was my life savings.

I invested $100,000 in beachfront lots from Playas Palmeras over 14 years ago with the hopes of building a retirement home within 2 years. I am now 74 and, to date, NO infrastructure has been put in – no electricity, no sewerage, no water, no roads, no nothing, has been put in! These people are CROOKS! Do not buy there – BEWARE!!!!!!
