Puerto Morelos

4.2

Jewel of Mexican Caribbean

A small seaport at the tip of Yucatan Peninsula, pleasant Puerto Morelos offers a good alternative for visitors seeking a quieter beach vacation with plenty of tourist amenities. Halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, this seaside settlement manages to resist overdevelopment thanks to strict building restrictions and environmental laws, which keep commercialization of picturesque coastal areas tightly controlled. The sea remains the star attraction here, so most Puerto Morelos vacations incorporate swimming and basking on the sand with snorkeling or diving in the marine life-rich Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Visitors looking for land-based activities can explore a nearby national park, protecting a mangrove forest providing a home for dozens of bird species.

Where to stay in Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos tourism focuses on exquisite beaches, with the town's accommodations nestled as close to the coastline as possible. Unlike some of Mexico's other coastal hotspots, however, Puerto Morelos also offers a decent range of budget options to complement the inevitable beach resorts. Only a stone's throw from the beach you can find affordable guesthouses, hotels, condos, and private rentals, with some even more budget-friendly options located a few streets back from the shore.
