The Charm of Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos is one of the oldest communities on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Though it’s still a fishing village, Puerto Morelos’ proximity to Cancun and a National Marine Park just offshore have made it a popular spot from which to explore the Great Mesoamerican Reef.

Do some snorkeling, snap some photos of the town’ fishing pier and famous leaning lighthouse, then browse for a few souvenirs. It’s a great place with friendly locals. And don’t forget to check out my video on where to eat in Puerto Morelos!

      You can snorkel all along the coast of Cancun and the Riviera Maya! The Mesoamerican Reef runs along the coast, making for fantastic snorkeling excursions. You can also snorkel in most Caribbean destinations.
