Besides the amazing views and the soothing effect of the sound of waves crashing on the shore, studies have shown that spending time by the ocean has numerous health benefits and improves general well-being.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, doctors actually prescribed trips to the beach since the ocean air was considered a cure for almost any illness and had supposed healing powers. Living by the ocean is simply good for your health and can reduce your risk of obesity and lower the incidence of heart disease and other ailments.
More and more foreigners are purchasing Mexican real estate on the coast to enjoy the benefits of living at the beach. What better way to bring relaxation and relieve stress? People that live by the ocean not only report reduced stress, but they live in an environment that encourages physical activity such as walking along the beach or swimming in the ocean. Garza Blanca homeowners with properties in Puerto Vallarta have said that living at the beach is not only luxurious and enjoyable, but it happens to be good for you too!
Recently, scientists have conducted several experiments related to the ocean’s health benefits. One such experiment focused on showing photographs of ocean views, green fields or cities to study participants, and then asking how much they were willing to pay for a hotel room with either the ocean, field or city view. The study revealed that the participants were willing to pay the most for the ocean view room.
