A Little information about Puerto Morelos
Puerto Morelos is a town in Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula, about 20km south of Cancun. It is both a fishing village and a resort and diving/snorkeling destination. It is located roughly halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen on the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
Puerto Morelos town hosts snorkeling and sport fishing boats while yachts dock in a man-made harbor just south of town. The village Puerto Morelos used to be the embarkation point for the car ferry to Cozumel, but that now leaves from Calica, a major port south of Playa del Carmen.
Puerto Morelos is the ideal location for those who want a quiet beach vacation away from the glitz, but with ample tourist amenities. The Puerto Morelos downtown has just two principal streets and you can walk from one end to the other in about 15 minutes.
You can get by with English in Puerto Morelos, but Spanish is not superfluous. Most places accept US dollars and some accept Credit Cards. Almost all prices are quoted in Mexican pesos and it is generally cheaper to pay in pesos, than in US dollars.
The Puerto Morelos reef just off shore is part of the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef system in the world and the largest in the Western Hemisphere. In 1998 the reef in front of Puerto Morelos became a protected National Marine Park, actually called “Puerto Morelos National Marine Park”; preserving its rich biodiversity and making this area one of the best preserved of the Great Mesoamerican Reef. Buildings in Puerto Morelos are limited to three stories by local bylaws, to preserve the village type of character.
Nowadays Weddings on the Beach in Puerto Morelos are very popular, because its a great place with lots of nature and an incredible view to the Caribbean Sea where you can hold small Weddings to the biggest one.
There are two parts to Puerto Morelos, the former fishing village on the coast, now Hotels, Condominiums, Restaurants and Tourist shops, and the second part about 2 Km. inland and adjacent to Highway 307, on the western side, called La Colonia de Puerto Morelos by locals. The inland portion is mainly single level dwellings for the local workers.
