If you want to have a quiet and relaxing day just listening ocean sounds with more private beach areas, Puerto Morelos is your option.
It is a village located halfway between Playa del Carmen and Cancun. The beach here is not crowded and there are no rocks, seawater is quiet and there are no big waves crashing so it is perfect place to swim, to build sand castles or just take a walk for the seashore and enjoy the amazing view. There is a spectacular reef called Puerto Morelos national Marine Park, it offers you an awesome snorkeling experience, you will see the sea life like corals, tropical fish and sea turtles. The tours for the reef are around $300 per person, the tour takes around three hours and it is absolutely worth it, if you don´t want to spend too much in tours, you can do it by your own but you will need to bring your own snorkeling equipment, because there is no equipment rentals here. After the tour you can eat some appetizers and enjoy a cocktail in one of the beachfront restaurants, they are delicious and also they aren´t expensive. Once you are here, remember visiting Playa del Carmen (it is just 30 minutes for Puerto Morelos) you will fall in love with the beach and surely you will want to live here so we recommend you to visit us in our Real Estate office, we will be glad to assist to you and share our experience with you.
Enjoy Riviera Maya!!
