Puerto Morelos Holidays

Holidays in Puerto Morelos – a secluded town between Playa del Carmen and Cancun – are for you to do with as you please. Bathe in the warm sea and sun, eat your fill of authentic Mexican cuisine (and plenty more besides), unwind and forget about work for a while, catch up on a book, or perhaps do absolutely nothing at all. With the Caribbean waters lapping at your feet and the friendly Mexican atmosphere everywhere you go, you won't want to think about booking anywhere else.

Visit the zoo

Croco Cun Zoo in Puerto Morelos is a special place. This is not the traditional kind of zoo with animals in cages and visitors unable to get close. Here, you can enjoy a 60-minute tour where you become the zookeeper, holding or touching many different kinds of animals, including some incredible crocodiles! The aim of the zoo is to show people the true beauty of wild creatures in as natural a way as possible, and it certainly inspires a love of wildlife and an appreciation of the natural world.

Puerto Morelos is also the place where sea turtles come to lay their eggs. If you are there at the right time of year, you'll see the beautiful reptiles venture out of the sea to lay their eggs on the sandy beach. It's an extraordinary sight not to be missed.

Incredible nature

Puerto Morelos Mexico holidays can be many things to many people, but something that everyone will enjoy are the incredible natural wonders that holidays to Mexico can offer.

There is a fascinating Mayan archaeological site there, too.

How about taking a refreshing dip in Cenote La Noria? This water pit has unknown origins, but it is used today as a natural swimming hole and, at 70 metres deep, its clear waters allow you to see almost all the way down.

Unwind on the beach

Of course, what would Puerto Morelos holidays be without some beach time? Relaxing on any of the incredible beaches in the area (the most famous of which are the Ocean Coral and Turquesa beaches) is a must. Golden sands and a calm, clear sea is all you need to really have a holiday of a lifetime, yet Puerto Morelos offers this and so much more. The area is part of Riviera Maya (a beautiful stretch of Caribbean coastline), so there are many different beaches to choose from.
