If you love being in or on the water, Puerto is the place to be! The Meso-American reef here is amazingly beautiful and healthy, comparable to the island of Cozumel in abundance of fish and marine life.
Water activities like snorkelling, SCUBA diving, paddle-boarding and kiteboarding are popular. The water is calm and crystal-clear pretty much year round!
There is great deep-sea fishing to be had! Puerto Morelos is a fishing community, after all. Local guides are ready to take you to the best spots for marlin, mahi-mahi, trigger fish, grouper, snapper and barracuda.
The islands of Isla Mujeres, Isla Contoy and Cozumel are all nearby, as well as several activity parks (Xcaret, Xplor, XelHa, Xoximilco, Xenses). Swim with gentle whale sharks, tour Mayan ruins, or zipline through the jungle for a fun-filled day the family will always remember! For something unique, check out some of the gorgeous cenotes in the area (freshwater sinkholes with caverns). There is also a botanical garden and an interactive zoo to enjoy.
In town there are several souvenir shops with hand-crafted local items like colorful Mayan textiles, Mexican pottery, etc. Cool off after shopping and enjoy the sea breezes at a beach-side bar or restaurant.
