Puerto Morelos vacation rentals

Beachside bliss on the Riviera Maya

Perched on the sizzling Yucatan Peninsula, Puerto Morelos is a poster child for Mexico's laid-back beach scene. While it's sandwiched between the resorts of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos has managed to retain much of its fishing town charm. This makes it a fantastic destination for those in search of sun, sand, and an unhurried vibe. Puerto Morelos vacation rentals give you a chance to live the beach life with breezy oceanfront villas complete with private pools, terraced sun decks, and swaying palm trees. Not to mention knockout views of Yucatan's fiery Caribbean sunsets.

Shipwrecks, handicrafts, and taco shacks

Thanks to its position on the Caribbean coast, Puerto Morelos serves up some of Mexico's best scuba diving. The Puerto Morelos Reef National Park sits just offshore and is dotted with kaleidoscopic dive sites and shipwrecks. In town, you'll find a lively street scene with plenty of traditional taco shacks, fresh juice stands, and lively bars to enjoy. The colorful Artisans Market is great place to pick up souvenirs, selling everything from wood carvings to woven hammocks. Want to enjoy an utterly relaxing escape? With some featuring inhouse maids and private chefs, Puerto Morelos vacation rentals will leave you wanting for nothing.

Discover a hidden underwater world

Puerto Morelos is brimming with natural attractions, including sparkling freshwater sinkholes. With its crystal-clear water and lush surrounds, Las Mojarras Cenote is an inland oasis. If you're feeling adventurous you can plunge into the water from a tower or glide over the cenote on a zipline. Nearby, Verde Lucero is another pocket of paradise, with wooden steps leading down into the cavernous cenote. If you're scuba certified, you can even descend into the cenotes to explore an ethereal world of underwater stalactites and stalagmites.

A winter getaway to Puerto Morelos

High season in the Yucatan Peninsula begins in late December and continues right through to Easter. You'll enjoy lashings of sunshine, calm seas, and clear water that's perfect for diving. Winter is also a hugely popular time for weddings, family reunions, and corporate retreats. Planning a special event? Luxury Puerto Morelos vacation rentals make it easy to keep your whole party together, with some premium properties sleeping over 20 guests.

A haven for Yucatan turtles

Turtles love to breed on Yucatan's coastal beaches which means there are plenty of opportunities to spot green, loggerhead, hawksbill, and leatherback turtles, especially during the nesting and hatching season. For divers, Puerto Morelos serves as a jumping point to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest reef system in the world. If you don't want to get your feet wet why not escape to Jardin Botanico Dr Alfredo Barrera Marin? Covering a vast footprint, it's one of Mexico's largest botanical gardens. As well as orchids, ferns, and succulents keep an eye out for the cheeky troupe of spider monkeys.
