We just spent a week in Puerto Morelos in July at Randys Casita Blanca condo and loved it. Quiet town, nice friendly people and beautiful ocean view. The temperature in the 80’s each day, no rain, with a steady ,cool breeze off the ocean in front of Casita Blanca.
The most surprising part of our stay was discovering the wonderful town of Puerto Morelos. After a few days, we began calling it “Mayberry”. It was like traveling back in time to a simpler way of life. We had a rental car but didn't really need it. You can walk anywhere you need to go. If you walk out the back of Casita Blanca and turn left on the street, it is a 5 minute walk down to where the best restaurants are located. Habanero is great for tacos. They were three for $5.00 and were so large they were a meal for two people. Another short walk puts you in the main town square of Puerto Morelos. When it began to cool in the afternoon, the kids come out to play soccer. My 11 year old son joined in and played with the local boys till it was too dark to see. There were more restaurants, street vendors, an ice cream shop, small grocery store, police station, church, real estate agency and convenient store located around the square for just about anything you could need on vacation. All of this overlooking ocean with the fisherman coming and going all day. Very nice!!
We toured the area over by the highway and saw the crocodile zoo, (great), botanical garden (just ok), the colonial village of puerto morelos on the highway(interesting) and the El Cid resort down the beach to the south (too busy for us)
Overall, it was a great vacation and we would return.
