Known for its pristine beaches, Puerto Morelos is just 20 km south of Cancun. Perfect for a quiet beach vacation Puerto Morelos is a tranquil fishing village, resort, and diving destination. With just two main streets you can walk from one end of the village to the other in just 15 minutes. In the center of the town is a pier where you can find snorkel and sport fishing boats. Just out of town is a man made harbor where yacht's and larger boats can be docked. The main draw of Puerto Morelos is its underwater reef which is part of the Great Mesoamerican Reef and perfect for snorkeling or diving.
Like most tropical regions, the Yucatan Peninsula has a wet and dry season. The region’s wet season (May to November) is hot, humid and rainy with the occasional hurricane blowing in. Despite poor weather, July and August are popular times for foreign and Mexican tourists to visit. However, if you’re dreaming of a sunny beach vacation, head here in the dry season (late November to February) when the weather milder and less rainy. Unfortunately, you won’t be alone on that white sand beach (especially if you’re planning a Christmas vacation: tourism peaks from mid-December to early January, which drives up prices), but at least you’ll get to bask in the sun without it raining on your parade.

New YORK!

My favorite hidden-in-plain-sight town in the Riviera Maya. It still has a nice small-town vibe, it isn't hip at all and it has a bunch of great restaurants. And a fantastic bookstore. Oh, and the reef offshore is in great shape. It's the perfect place to rent an apartment for a week and just chill out.

Puerto Morelos is kinda like what the Big Island is to hawaii. It is touristy enough to draw visitors, but it remains small and quaint enough that it has not become a spring break destination. The town is entertaining at night and the beaches are great 24 hours a day.
