Where is Puerto Morelos?
Like every Monday, we had the opportunity to take one of our tours, this time we went to Puerto Morelos, one of the newest tours in Cancun.
Early in the morning, a bus picked us up at the hotel to take us to this heavenly place. Puerto Morelos is located 30 minutes from the Solaris Resorts in Cancun, it is the main port of the state of Quintana Roo and is an incredible place to relax, snorkel and especially to spend memorable moments with the family.
What to do in Puerto Morelos.
Upon arrival in Puerto Morelos, the bus left us at Puerto Morelos Fish Market, a restaurant founded by fishermen of the region. Here the Snorkel Puerto Morelos’ staff was in charge of giving us all the equipment and the necessary instructions for our next adventure.
Afterward, we took the boat that would take us to know the Arrecife National Park of Puerto Morelos, where we had the opportunity to snorkel in a part of the Great Mayan Reef, which is the second largest reef formation in the world, only after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. This barrier reef begins north of the Yucatan peninsula on Contoy Island and continues its way south through Guatemala and Belize and ends in Honduras near the Bay Islands.
After admiring a beautiful landscape on the way to the reef and receiving the last instructions, the time finally came to get into the water. At the moment we submerged we could admire a large number of species of Caribbean fish such as parrotfish and barracuda, different species of rays, sea snails, the amazing elk antlers corals and we even had the opportunity to swim very close to one Turtle, which was an experience without comparison.
Before you go:
- Be sure to wear fresh and comfortable.
- Be sure to bring enough sunscreen and water to drink.
- Be sure to bring extra cash if needed.
What to eat in Puerto Morelos.
After this aquatic adventure, we returned to Fish Market Puerto Morelos to taste a delicious buffet of Mexican food while listening to a trio playing “La Bamba” and other beautiful songs of the region.
Without a doubt, it was an unforgettable experience that allowed us to get in touch with nature and admire the natural beauty found in the Great Mayan Reef. So if you are planning to come to Cancun on your next vacation, we highly recommend you to attend!
