Puerto Moreles is located on the north east tip of Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula. As with most Mexican destinations on the Caribbean coast, Puerto Moreles boasts a spectacular white sandy beach to laze the days away on. If you want something more active, however, there are a number of tours to take part in.
Visiting the 150 acre Botanical Gardens 2km south is an enjoyable day out as you work your way along the 3km of winding paths in the beautiful grounds. Make sure you bring the mosquito repellent, however and watch out for the inquisitive monkeys.
Crococun Zoo is a little more exciting. Located along the highway it is an ecological crocodile farm and interactive zoo. Take a one hour guide from one of the zoo's experts and you will be able to feed, touch and hold a variety of species from snakes, deer, spider monkeys and real life crocodiles. The park opens daily at 9am and it is advisable to get there early to avoid walking around in the midday heat. Prices are 276 pesos for adults and 168 pesos for children.
The nightlife in Puerto Moreles centres on many of the local restaurants who host live jazz music. Some of the picks of the town include David Lau's, an oriental restaurant that is strangely famous in the area for its pizzas! Dona Triny is a small restaurant offering traditional Mexican food and is a must if you are interested in the local cuisine. The restaurant is open daily from 7am through to 11pm so why not grab yourself a Mexican breakfast whilst there. One for the view is the Hotel Ojo de Agua located on the beach next to the Villa Playa Sol. The food is not as recommended as the view is but it still serves a healthy choice of cuisine and drinks. A great spot for lunch.
For all those with a picky palate there is always L'Oazis, a restaurant specialising in grilled international food. This place is located in the town square so is easy to find but note that it is shut all day Monday. For dessert pop over to The Ice Cream Bar next to David Lau's. It serves more varieties than you could imagine.
Flights land at Cancun International Airport for Puerto Moreles so you are left with a choice of how to get there. There are regular bus routes that leave from the airport bus terminal. Another option is to book an airport transfer. This is the recommended option if you are travelling in a larger party. For a party of up to eight you can book a round trip for $110 in your own private air conditioned vehicle. Parties of two cost $50 one way or $90 for the round trip, very reasonable as taxis cost $70 each way.
Another option is to rent a car and arrange for it to be dropped off at Cancun International. Prices start from $55 per day including tax and insurance and you have the added benefit of being able to explore the larger area.
Puerto Moreles is a delightful Mexican holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist spots. It offers a variety for any holiday maker and is a great location to get away to.
