Puerto Morelos (PM) is such a great spot for those of you who wish to avoid the crowds of Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Cozumel. This is no concrete, mega-hotel, boring, standard vacation spot. The condos at Playasol are really quite nice. Very practical and accessible to the town square--just stroll up the beach barefoot for 5 minutes and you arrive in town where there are many good restaurants, an ATM, cambia, fresh fish market, church, and several nice places to hang out and drink margaritas or people watch.
The condo itself is very well maintained. Everything you need is there to make you feel at home--fully equipped kitchen for cooking up your fresh fish or ceviche, two bathrooms, comfortable beds and sheets, washer & dryer combo, wireless internet (though who needs that when you have the most beautiful beach just a few steps away??) and easy access to the very nice pool area.We had two children-aged 14 and 2 with us, and they felt at home and comfortable in the condo. The neighbors and caretakers are extremely friendly and polite.
This location serves as a perfect jumping off point for any number of trips to see Cenotes, Mayan ruins, more beaches, caves, and outdoor adventures. Most sights are about 30 minutes to 90 minutes away. Make sure to check out the scenic and amazing Cenote Highway and Tulum.
PM is really a unique and special place. We were just blown away by the beauty of the location, and our stay was just so wonderful at Playasol, we will be back! We have already discussed setting up a vacation savings account to begin saving for our next trip to PM. We really want to go back very soon. I agree with the previous poster who said they were sad to leave, as were we. But we know that we have found a truly special place that will forever be in our fondest of memories. We loved it and so did our kids. The owner Ron is real gentleman, and very helpful. We cannot imagine a better experience.
Cantina Habanero, Las Pelicanos, and Rosy's Juice Bar were all great spots. The Pollo Adobo BBQ carry out was great too (only two blocks from Playasol, follow the sign on the corner) and very affordable. We got a great deal on several beautiful, handmade hammocks and other souvenirs at the Artisanal Marketplace on the other side of the square. The townspeople were friendly and accommodating. Definitely travel to the Colonia (the other side of PM) for authentic tacos and other foods as well as better priced vegetables, fruits, and meats.
