I highly recommend Denis Couture to anyone trying to buy or sell property in the Costa Maya Region.  Even though we have never met I feel like we are friends.  He first helped me move a road that ran through my property, cutting it in half, so the property would be worth more.  Later when I was ready to sell he advertised and helped me with all the details.  He has always been very up front, honest and prompt in all his communications.  I truly value his professionalism, his advise and all the help he has given me.  He will be the first person I contact when I buy property again or want to know what is happening in that area.

Thank you Denis.

I have had the pleasure of working with Denis Couture/MexicoCaribbean off and on for 5 years.  Denis’ intimate knowledge of the Costa Maya was reassuring to me when we purchased our land in Xcalak.  He not only knows the real estate market, but also the best places to travel, where to find trade people, an accountant, lawyer, etc.  These are all important when purchasing property in another country.  He carefully explained the process of buying – what the steps are, where the cultural differences might be frustrating, etc. Denis also has an excellent pulse on the economics, investment potential and related – important factors when investing in a foreign land. I always look forward to his newsletters with a an updated on the Costa Maya.  On top of all of this Denis has always been willing to help me if something related to Xcalak pops up – long after we completed our transaction.


We thought buying land in Mexico would be impossible, but Denis made this dream for us just as easy as buying land in the United States. We do not know Spanish and heard horror stories of other people’s experiences. Denis was trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable, and even helped us after we bought the land and started the building process.

Even though we never met in person, it was great doing business with you.  You came highly recommended from two separate property owners in Mahahual.  As you know, we couldn’t have picked a worse time to sell our property than the actual day that Hurricane Dean arrived, but inspite of that, we received our full asking price and a quick close, with no delays.  We miss the warm and wonderful Caribbean.  In all our communication with you, throughout the sale and close process, you were very prompt, knowledgeable efficient and courteous.

We would do business with you again, in a heartbeat.We were recently down in Mahuhual and felt safe as ever.  We may come to Mexico again soon, and are thinking about reinvesting.
Thanks again for a job well done.

Denis Couture knows the Cost Maya and Lake Bacalar area extensively. His expertise is the quality of real estate and the market. He gives an excellent tour of the area and educates you well on the special features of the property and its value. He helps you navigate through the buying process with special insight into owning land in Mexico. Overall, an excellent experience!

Denis was recommended to us over 5 years ago, and we’ve been working with him ever since. He walked us through process of buying our land, helped us find a lawyer and accountant, and has always been available to give advice whenever needed. His knowledge of the Costa Maya is extensive, but equally important is the network of industry contacts he’s built up over the years. His expertise and connections are, in our opinion, what sets him apart. Buying land as a foreigner can be tricky — it’s certainly not something you want to do one your own. We’ve heard plenty of stories of realtors not tying up loose ends, turning what should have been a dream purchase into a big headache. But with Denis, our experience went smoothly.  We would recommend him to anyone and when the time comes to make another purchase, we know who we’ll be calling.

“Denis was extremely helpful when we made our purchase in the Costa Maya.  He worked tirelessly to help us find the right property, negotiate and the close the deal.  He continues to be an extremely valuable resource, helping us with a number of ongoing services and looking out for opportunities to improve and preserve our property value.  I highly recommend Denis if you are considering a purchase of property in the Costa Maya. He’s honest, hardworking, knowledgeable and passionate about the area and the investment opportunity!”

Residing in the United States fulltime, I was a bit unnerved when I first took the plunge to purchase property in Mexico along the Costa Maya four years ago. Shortly after I purchased my first property, Denis was recommended as a contact and point person for questions about the area and knowledge regarding real estate.  In our conversations, I learned of another property from Denis and utilized him to purchase another lot. Since the close of that transaction,  I have had multiple email and telephone communications and even met him for lunch in Mahahual. This, our first meeting, occurred years after we completed our business. He has given me great advice and has also kept me informed about goings on in that part of the world. It has been wonderful to have someone so well versed in the area, local customs and laws. I highly recommend him and do appreciate how helpful he’s been.
