Puerto Morelos Corona Beach and PelicanIt's a charming small Caribbean town where the community consists of colorful artists, ex pats, local fishermen and flocks of Brown Pelicans; Puerto Morelos's mascot. You can sit and have a margarita and watch the town square where children play soccer with waves breaking on the reef in the background, and the local fishermen showing off their freshly caught grouper. The town of Puerto Morelos has a unique personality and high regard to the nature surrounding it. The Great Mayan Reef a National Park is only a short 200 yards from the beach and is an ideal place to enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving with a wide array of Caribbean fish.

Puerto Morelos has the advantage of being conveniently located midway between the towns of Cancun and Playa Del Carmen at the start of the Mayan Riviera, making it an ideal location to explore all of the areas nearby attractions. A 18 minute drive south of the Cancun airport.

Puerto Morelos, Mexico - Fishing Boats on beach done for the day.Many of our renters over the years say they just love Puerto Morelos because "It reminds them of what Playa Del Carmen was like 20 or so years ago, a quaint Mexican Beach Town." The difference between Puerto Morelos and Playa Del Carmen is that Puerto Morelos has been able to maintain a low-key residential community; all the huge all-inclusive resorts are set apart from the actual town. Many of Puerto Morelos residents are working fishermen, and you will enjoy watching them arrive back to the pier in the afternoon with their boats full of fish, take an walk on the beach you will see the local fishing boats docked for the night.

Jimmy Buffet cites* Puerto Morelos as a source of inspiration for his famous song, Margaritaville.

Puerto Morelos Church in Town SquareThe Cancun and Playa Del Carmen lack the colonial town setting that most of the rest of Mexico has, however the exception is Puerto Morelos which has a town square surrounded by neighborhood shops, restaurants and the heart of the community the Church. The town square is the center of activity, most any night of the week there is a soccer game going on (Mexican's call it futbol), there is a playground area for the kids and a gazebo that at times have band playing and on Wednesdays the center of town host a farmers market.
