This website is all about Puerto Morelos, a beautiful Mexican fishing village on the ocean, between the resort towns of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, Mexico. Puerto Morelos is unique because it has maintained it's genuine "fishing village" atmosphere. Here you can snorkel, fish, explore jungle and Mayan ruins without being in a crowded resort town. Our beaches are wide, clean and practically deserted. Puerto Morelos features top restaurants serving great food to all budgets. Our shopping is unique and low-pressure, like our bookstore. A unique collection of 20,000 books  in a small Mexican fishing village. It's quirky and cool...kind of like Puerto Morelos. Sign up for our free newsletter on this page to sample the town, and plan your next vacation to Puerto Morelos.
