We slowdown from our usual fast paced vacations and travel South of Cancun along the Yucatán Peninsula to the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos.
- A great barrier reef just over 600 yards from the shore provides ideal snorkeling and diving with magnificent views of sunken ships, tropical fish, sting rays, sea turtles, lobster, and other ocean life.
- Swim with dolphins and learn about conservation, their environment, and welfare at Delphinus Puerto Morelos.
- Faro Inclinado, also known as the Puerto Morelos Leaning Lighthouse, is still active. During Hurricane Beulah in 1967 part of the foundation was destroyed causing the light house to lean.
- Puerto Morelos is the only harbor in Quintana Roo accessible by large ships. The port was booming in the 1920s shipping chicle, a resin used to make chewing gum. The resin was plentiful, a product of sapodilla trees abundant throughout the forests in Puerto Morelos. Unfortunately, the demand of the port was short-lived. A more affordable, synthetic base replaced the resin in the mid 1900’s and Puerto Morelos returned to a sleepy fishing village.
