Puerto Morelos Q.Roo, Riviera Maya.
In Puerto Morelos tranquility reigns with open skies, long stretches of beach and a small town atmosphere. This is the place to come and relax: watch the sunrise on the beach, meet the locals, explore the natural wonders such as the coral reef 500 meters from shore, work on your tan, or simply soak up the serenity. Wedged between the bustling cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, it has maintained its peaceful atmosphere of a charming Mexican fishing village living up to its nickname “La Joya del Caribe” (Jewel of the Caribbean). The community, a mix of locals and foreigners, works hard to protect Puerto’s status as a National Marine Park and keep development to a minimum. Its close proximity to the airports and bus terminals makes Puerto Morelos a perfect base for exploring the Yucatan peninsula.
This Perfect Caribbean Location is found along the beautiful Mexican Caribbean coastline in the state of Quintana Roo. Puerto Morelos is on the Riviera Maya, just 25 minutes (18 km / 11 miles) south of the Cancun International Airport. Here you will find a perfect contrast to the bustling cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, located north and south of Puerto Morelos. Life here moves at a slow pace, its easy going and bohemian in the best sense of the word. Puerto Morelos maintains its charm and magic with a low-key atmosphere.
