Roughly midway between the sprawling resorts of Cancún and the bustling vacation hotspot of Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos is worlds-apart. A still-active fishing village, it’s small and quiet, with a main plaza lined with cute little cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating…a malecon, or seaside promenade, that runs along the beach…and a distinct lack of large-scale development.
You’ll find mostly homes and small condo buildings…local shops…and a traditional Mexican feel. You can even still buy fresh catch at the local fishing cooperative. Its charms have attracted a small but loyal group of in-the-know expats. Some stay year-round, enjoying white-sand beaches and swimming the clear turquoise Caribbean. But there is also a sizeable snowbird contingent, especially Canadians, who make “high season” quite an active time in Puerto Morelos.
There is a three-bedroom home listed that also has a one-bedroom guest cottage—perfect for visiting friends and relatives. There is a private pool, as well as large, well-landscaped garden area.
