Beautiful land by the coast in southern mexico, state of Oaxaca. Rolling hills, natural forest, bordering an arroyo with shallow year round water well access, walking path Alon arroyo to gorgeous white sand beach for snorkeling, swimming and fishing. Ocean view from part of the land, as well as hill and forest views.
Unique place awaiting a permaculture land steward to keep this paradise intact and make it even more amazing. Perfect place to create a retreat with horses and live in the wild while also having road access to beach and to both close by towns for pretty much everything you need.
In the 5 years I’ve been living in the area I’ve never seen such a giant property available near the beaches. In pristine condition, for a person with a vision.
I wanted to purchase this myself for creating a permaculture farm and retreat with horses together with a partner from Europe. However, some life plans on my partners behalf changed so that I’m helping  the original and only ever owner of this magical piece of land find the perfect person, so this land may be in the hands of people who care.
As far as ownership here - it’s important to understand that it is not the same ownership as in US, rather, as the “owner” you become the person with the rights of use. This right of use is transferable over generations and does not require property taxes, again, because the ownership isn’t defined in the same way. It does require community taxes at the time of sale, but it is a one-time thing. As a foreigner, you can own “the rights to use” land via a Mexican corporation. There are a few extra hoops and mind bends to get through, but in the long run so worth it.
Also, the path to citizenship isn’t too difficult or lengthy.
Very quiet area and near communities that already have yoga and permaculture traditions, so easy to plug into an existing network.
Also, there is a great need/thirst for permaculture grown produce, so a built in local market for anyone who would like to go that way.
Land price 450,000 (US)

I've lived in Oaxaca for 26 years, the community taxes are not a one-time thing, but by buying this land you basically sign up to be a part of the community and take a share in community projects. Often times when the community says, wants to pave a road, they will get the materials from the state or federal government but the community all has to do the labor to pave the road. Haul buckets of cement or whatever heavy labor is involved.  The community also has a fiesta, usually for a catholic saint and you have to give a cow to be slaughtered or buy fireworks, or pay for the band or whatever is needed for the fiesta. It goes on and on and on. There are benefits to being part of the community, but those benefits come with responsibilities and obligations.
I'm not saying don't do it. Just saying ask lots and lots of questions and make sure its what you really want to do.
