What people are saying about Puerto Morelos

We snorkeled right after the storm so the water was a bit cold and murky but it was fun anyway! The rest of the day was just awesome - relaxed atmosphere, fast organization, we were on time everywhere and it was all lasting just good long enough to enjoy the location but not stay too long. Would highly recommend as a combined activity if you do not have a chance to visit Isla Mujeres for a longer stay.

Very good attention from the team, super friendly and all the time looking for you to have a good time, be comfortable and enjoy yourself. The food is simple, but the places you visit are worth it, I definitely recommend it

It is what can really be called a party, a show worth living, I really enjoyed the whole experience, Lots of food and drinks... the attention from another world, EXCELLENT
