Part 1 of Our 2005 Mayan Riviera Adventure

Part 2 was in Playa del Carmen
Puerto Morelos is a "sleepy little fishing village", about half way between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. After travelling the highway on this coast a number of times, it is hard for me to believe there is anywhere "off the beaten path" on this coast, but Puerto Morelos is just that.

Puerto Morelos beach scene

During our entire stay here, the weather was somewhat off. There were no clouds overhead, but they were off-shore. As a result, even though we were getting sunshine, there was a general darkness that affected the beach. We took this photo on our last day here, when the clouds finally cleared off, and we found that the beach was quite spectacular.

Red-necks, Mexican style

Around where we live, red-necks leave old junked cars at the side of the road. Here, it seemed to be boats. There were a number of them parked on the side streets (does the tide come in that high?)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Not as crowded as Cancun or Playa del Carmen
  • Cons:Not as many services, either
  • In a nutshell:Great, quiet place to just kick back and relax
