Get to know the most charming port town in Quintana Roo. A Caribbean town where you can do a lot of water activities, get to know nature, go to tourist sites, relax on the beach…you have many possibilities to choose from. We tell you all about them.

Puerto Morelos of Quintana Roo

Puerto Morelos is very close to the reef, it is a perfect opportunity for those who like to snorkel (if you are an expert diver you can bring your license and dive into the depths of the sea).

Also, if you are getting to know the different cenotes in the city, we encourage you to get to know the different ones here. These are Cenote 7 Bocas and Cenote Verde Lucero. Another of the cenotes you can’t miss is the touristy Cenote Ik-Kil.

Kayaking or renting a boat is also a good plan. If you like fishing, you can take advantage of this activity to go after different fish such as dorado, wahoo tuna or marlin, how many different ones will you be able to catch?

Lighthouse in Puerto Morelos

Another place you have to go is the tilted lighthouse (here photography is a must) consequence of a hurricane in 1967.

If you are a nature lover, we recommend a visit to the Botanical Garden, one of the most important in the area, where you will see local plants and wildlife.

To take home a souvenir of your visit to the city, you will like to go to the Hunab-Ku handicraft center where unique products and objects that you have never seen before are made.

Finally, you can also reserve a day of your vacation and go to one of the natural parks in Puerto Morelos: extreme Adventure Cancun or Native Park Puerto Morelos. Another of the most popular resorts is Xcaret Park in Cancun, which we encourage you to visit.

Puerto Morelos Beaches

The beaches of Puerto Morelos, being more of a quiet Caribbean town, are not overcrowded, are wide and most of them are publicly accessible. Near the beaches there are also several restaurants and bars where you can eat, without having to bring food from home.

Just 400 meters from the beaches, we find the second largest barrier reef in the world. This is what protects the beaches of Puerto Morelos, turning them into magnificent places for family games, tranquility and disconnection for those who need it.
