We had a great vacation here! We are all avid SCUBA divers and we loved Puerto Morelos for its lovely reefs and because it is smaller than bigger cities like Cancun.
The condo complex is situated in a very nice place; not far from town that it is a long drive in, but far enough to be away from the lights and noise of both town and the El Cid Resort (which is about a mile south). The beach is wonderful to walk along, and we found some very cool treasures that washed up on the shore. We loved the hammock on the balcony and the palm trees all around.
In the palm tree outside the Master Bedroom, we noticed that a Myna bird had built a nest there!
Every so often, she would return with an insect and you could see her feeding her babies.
All the restaurants that we tried were very good. Our personal favorite was El Merkadito del Mar: Excellent, affordable food in a beautiful location with great ambiance.
We enjoyed the Infinity Pool in the little courtyard greatly, especially our 10-year old boy, Liam. For a while, the statue of Poseidon puzzled us. We couldn’t figure out from our balcony whether his hair was blowing in front of his face, or that he had a really long nose!
Carlos was very helpful to us, giving indications of where to eat, buy groceries, and do certain activities. He even helped set up a Whale Shark excursion for us. Many thanks to you, Carlos. Muchas Gracias!
We really enjoyed the warm weather, though we found it a little too hot at times. We especially liked how warm it is at night. Back home, the night temperatures are around 10 degrees Celsius – maximum! Not at all like the solid 29 degrees Celsius here.
All in all, a wonderful holiday! Lots of good food, good weather, and great diving!!
