We came to Puerto Morelos on December 24th in 2007 for our week long winter vacation. We discovered fantastic little village, friendly people, and great place to snorkel, eat good food and take a day trips to Tulum, Coba, and Chichen-itza.
After few days in Puerto Morelos you feel like not only you know everybody but everybody knows you.

- more fortunate Mexicans who sometimes eat at Tio's

- tourists with the money and lots of make-up who would never eat at Tio's
- tourists whom I call "normal" (from the lack of better word) who eat at Tio's almost every day
- and the hippie population who cooks for themselves
The building is solid and quite new. Hotel has about 9 rooms so it is quiet and intimate. Location was great as it was... more travel advice
