5 things to do in Puerto Morelos

1.- Know the Sunken Ship

During the colony many ships filled with precious metals and other valuables that are now sought by treasure hunters sank in the Caribbean, but C-56 Juan Escutia was not one of them.

This ship was deliberately sunk on October 28, 2000 as an "artificial reef" and is 30 meters deep and about 2 km off the coast of Puerto Morelos.

Diving in sunken ships has a particular interest in the unique and rich ecosystem that develops within the rusty hull of the ship and constitutes a tourist trend with its own life.

Just as climbers keep track of the peaks they have crowned, many divers have their list of sunken ships they have explored.

The gunboat has a length of approximately 60 meters and has three decks for diving (cabins, machines and ammunition room).

On the upper deck it is common to see huge rays and other fish up to 150 kilos, including groupers. The boat is reached on a boat trip of about 20 minutes from Puerto Morelos.

Below is a video of what it is like to dive in the Cannon Boat:

3. Tour the town of Puerto Morelos

The modern history of Puerto Morelos began at the end of the 19th century, when the Colonizing Company of the Eastern Coast of Yucatan (which exploited forest products and other plant species in the forests near the coast) began to use the area as a transshipment point .

Before the construction of the pier, the logs were thrown into the sea and dragged with boats to a steam that anchored in the sea in front of the current Puerto Morelos.

The construction of the pier brought new momentum and the population began to grow, becoming the most important port of Quintana Roo.

Puerto Morelos retains its traditional fishing village atmosphere. The nerve center of the town is its picturesque square with its central kiosk and the church in which the local patron, San José, is venerated, whose feasts are celebrated on March 19.

Around the square are cafes, restaurants, bars, shops and ice cream parlors. A conversation with the old people of the town will take you to the times when Puerto Morelos lived from the exploitation of the dye stick, chewing gum, cork and vanilla.

4. Know Playa del Secreto

14 km south of Puerto Morelos, on the way to Playa del Carmen along the Riviera Maya road, is this wonderful beach, which is listed as one of the most beautiful in the Mexican Caribbean and, without a doubt, one of the most Quiet and decongested.

Despite its paradisiacal beauty, it has remained off the radar of mass tourism because its public access is an adventure through a mangrove and does not have many infrastructures.

The walk through the mangrove allows to see birds and other animals. The beach is a tortuguero sanctuary where the quelonios are going to spawn and it is not uncommon to see iguanas in this almost virgin habitat.

Some tourist service establishments in Playa del Secreto use the sun and winds to meet their energy needs.

It is a beach of intensely beautiful and crystal clear turquoise blue waters and soft white sands. The main beach activities are swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking.

5.- Staying in one of the Best Hotels in Puerto Morelos


Spending a day full of relaxation in one of the hotels in Puerto Morelos is one of the things you should not miss and the reason is that the hotels are very separated from each other and that is why they would have a lot of privacy and tranquility.

This is all friends, I hope you like my article and see you next time.
