Why Gretchen and Greg chose Puerto Morelos
We have been visiting Puerto Morelos for over 10 years and became quickly enamored with its relaxed nature, abundance of locally owned cafes and restaurants, and small town charm.
What makes this Condo unique
Casita Blanca offers the best of what Puerto Morelos has to offer-a lovely stretch of beach, within easy walking distance to the village square. Our place is sunny and spacious, allowing you to feel like you're at the beach even while your in the condo.

Perfect vacation spot!
Stayed 9 days and loved all of it. This is our 2nd stay at Casita Blanca but the first at Gretchen and Greg's place. It's a very nice updated condo, as opposed to other we stayed at last year, and it's actually nicer and more updated than any beach condo we've stayed at in our last 7 trips to Mexico in a similar price range. It's also got it's own dedicated high speed wifi, which was reliable and fast compared to any other place we've stayed. The manager, Roberto, was very helpful whenever needed. We loved the view from the balcony, which also allowed us to keep an eye on our kids whether they were at the pool or down on the beach. Puerto Morelos is still a bit of an undiscovered gem, and we love the location here at the condo which is far enough from town that we often had the beach to ourselves, but still just a 15 minute walk to town, or short bike ride (I definitely recommend renting a bike for your entire stay, which are cheap and make for a great way to explore the town and get around). We'll be back again next year!
GREAT UNIT IN A PERFECT LOCATION!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The unit was clean, pretty, well appointed, and comfortable. The location was perfect for us because we enjoyed the brief (10-12 min.) walk to the plaza area, and we had direct access to the beach from Casita Blanca. Nice beach and pool palapas and lounge chairs were available to renters. Terrific beach, pool,and ocean view from the unit’s porch. Would recommend this to 1-2 couples, or a small family.
Perfect escape at a perfect location!
This was the perfect place for us to get away from everything for a few days. We enjoyed being far enough away from the main part of town that we felt secluded, but we were close enough to have a short enjoyable walk to eat, shop etc. Check-in and check-out were super easy, and the hosts communicate very well and are super-responsive. The thing we liked most of all was being able to walk out our door, around the pool and down to the beach. We planted ourselves under the same palapa for our entire stay!
The unit itself is very comfortable. We kept the windows/doors open almost all of the time and were cooled by the ocean breeze. However, if it does get too hot, the air conditioning units worked very well at keeping the place cool.
The property has a very easy phone setup for calling a taxi, which we used a couple of times. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive.
Thanks Gretchen for a great experience! We would definitely stay here again if (when) we return to Puerto Morelos!
Perfect place in paradise.
After many years of coming to the Riviera Maya, Puerto Morelos has become our special place, and now Casa de la Madrugada, after this first stay, has become our special place to stay. Everything about the condo was as described and the whole Casita Blanca complex was just the right size and well taken care of. We loved the wonderful terrace and watched every sunrise and moonrise during our stay. It was very easy to stay there and we hope to return often in the future.
The place is lovely and the view amazing. Gretchen was so hospitable. Yes, the sargasso was quite a problem but that’s all up and down the coast. Puerto Morelos remains a lovely small town like I remember traveling to years ago. Feels millions of miles from Cancun 😍.
Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing stay. Nice walk into town for dinner and a cup of ice cream to walk home with. We will come again if at all possible.
Sunrise over the water!
This condo is perfect in many ways - clear view of beach and sunrise; nice sized balcony with hammock; very clean and well equipped; newly renovated; close enough to town but in a quiet, residential area; friendly and responsive staff. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. We loved walking into town along the beach or quiet streets. Puerto Morelos is such a safe and friendly town with many terrific restaurants and nightly live music, great snorkeling, fresh tortillas, fruit, fish and more!! Gretchen is very responsive and easy to work with. We hope to be back!
