Puerto Morelos is a pleasant village on the Mayan Riviera which offers visitors a glimpse of the genuine Yucatan. Puerto Morelos is ideal for those looking for somewhere a bit quieter than the busy Playa del Carmen.
Its reef (an official National Park) is part of the world's second-largest barrier reef , and is only 500 m from the beach. This place offers water sports such as diving, windsurf and snorkelling, or more relaxing activities such as bike-riding.
The Mayan Civilisation
The Yucatan peninsula is the natural setting of a people that zealously protected their traditions and ceremonies. The splendour of this ancient civilisation is particularly patent in Tulum, the site of a large number of archaeological ruins belonging to the most important cultures in Mexico's pre-Hispanic history.
