Puerto Morelos, near Cancun in Mexico, is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Find out all about where to go, how to get there and more!
A few days ago we took the Collectivo (Mexican type of public mini bus) from Playa Del Carmen to Puerto Morelos. 30 minutes and $20 MXN (equivalent of £1) later we arrived at the end of a 3km road leading to the beach. Rather than risking melting in the midday heat, we opted to take a taxi to the seafront.
We relaxed on the beach for a while and saw a protest march by locals who were campaigning for the protection of the reef, and greater environmental awareness.
Puerto Morelos is a gorgeous place to visit for an afternoon and is a lovely escape from the tourist areas of Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Don’t forget your camera!
