A small Fishermen's village situated to the north between Playa del Carmen and Cancun, Puerto Morelos, is apart of the Riviera Maya tourist corridor and therefore, one of the most exclusive residential areas in the Riviera Maya. Puerto Morelos shines for its exceptional beaches, relaxed bohemian ambiance and its reef (declared a National Park) which, is one of the world's second largest barrier reef, located just 500 meters from the beach. Popular among locals and tourist alike the beaches are wide, free of seaweed and a beautiful environment to relax on the sea. Ideal for swimming, snorkeling tours, diving, kite-surfing on windy days, among other marine activities. Experience great seafood restaurants, souvenir shopping or chatting with locals during your day in this small paradise, just 25 minutes drive from Playa del Carmen. Also, don't forget to visit neighboring Crococun Zoo, a interactive zoo where you can see (and carry in your arms) a baby crocodile!
