Puerto Morelos, Mexico: Reefs, Snorkeling, and Ancient Mayan Culture
The hotel is located less than a mile from the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos and about a 30-minute drive from both Playa del Carmen and Cancún. Here, bustling markets, Spanish-style churches, and a thriving arts community awaits travelers curious about local life. The resort also overlooks the Puerto Morelos National Reef Park, one of the Western Hemisphere’s largest reefs. It’s a popular snorkeling site thanks to its diverse underwater wildlife.
Nearby, stalactites and stalagmites jut from the ceiling and floor of Aktun-Chen, an underground cave where adventurers can snorkel through an ancient natural well. Eighty minutes from the resort, ancient Mayan culture is on display at the Tulum ruins, where crowds flock to see a well-preserved walled city overlooking the sea.
