Puerto Morelos has managed to retain its quaint, small-town feel despite its proximity to tourist-heavy towns of Cancún and Playa del Carmen. This seaside town lies on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico and its influences are obvious in locals’ slow-paced lifestyle and local cuisines. Travellers flock to this fishing village to enjoy its peaceful beaches and excellent snorkelling.

    The 2nd largest barrier reef in the world can partly be found near the shores of Puerto Morelos. The shore and the reef are beautifully separated by striking bands of dark blue and light green –a sight that many divers and snorkelers rave about. The town is separated into 2 by a protected mangrove – one side ideal for lazy days on tranquil beaches and the other for exploring local culture through markets and street food stalls. If you’re seeking adventure, roam further inland, where you’ll find magical cenotes like Las Mojarras and Verde Lucero.
