World ? Caribbean & Central America ? Mexico ? Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos: Introduction

Puerto Morelos remains a quiet place -- perfect for a relaxed vacation of lying on the white-sand beach and reading, with perhaps the occasional foray into watersports, especially snorkeling, diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, and kayaking. Offshore lies a prominent reef, which has been declared a national park for its protection. It's shallow and makes for easy snorkeling, and it protects the coast from storm surges. The beaches are great and are maintained by the local government. The water is shallow, calm, and clear, with sea grass growing on the bottom. The town has a good bit of community spirit and a relaxed feel. There is a large English-language new and used bookstore that stocks 20,000 titles that you might want to check out if you forgot to bring beach reading. The ferry that used to depart from here for Cozumel has moved down the coast to the Calica pier just south of Playa del Carmen.
