    Just go to the small downtown of Puerto Morelos and ask who will take you out to the reef - there are middle men who will call the guides and you can usually go right away - you need to pay $5.00 USD ...  more »

    Gentle, boat based scuba diving, beautiful Caribbean reefs with all the usual suspects on show. A good place to learn or photograph, the C56 wreck aside the main dive sites are 15m or shallower.  more »

    Saw plenty of fish and coral. Quite shallow - good for snorkeling and entry level scuba diving. Stingrays and barracuda also in the area.  more »

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.
