     Attractions 


The Mayan Riviera's Best Kept Secret

Poised with little fanfare between flashy Cancun and trendy Playa
del Carmen is the quiet pueblo of Puerto Morelos. This village is a
throwback to Mexican towns of old. In fact, it has been a working
fishing village for probably a millennium - first with native Mayans
and later with the invading Spaniards. Today's locals are a mix of
the two, and fishing, for the time being, still feeds a number of
families here.

With a fast growing tourist culture on all other fronts, many wonder
at the tranquility and essence of time standing still that is the
trademark of Puerto Morelos. During the dog days of summer, locals
refer to it as Muerto Morelos.

With natural beaches and a fair share of turtle grass at certain
times of the year, it is clear why Playa del Carmen "won out" for
the tourist dollar. But Playa's lack of mangroves like those
surrounding Puerto Morelos, has also made it the poster child for
uncontrolled growth. In Puerto Morelos, the mangroves form the
barrier of the town's limits as they are protected by national law
and cannot be filled. In Playa del Carmen, with no mangroves and
flat, open terrain, the sprawl continues to the North, South and
West. Tourists who had fallen in love with romantic Playa del Carmen
ten years ago are slowing moving on and discovering the one town on
the Maya Riviera that has not sold out to development and
irresponsible growth.

Strolling on the uncrowded beaches of white sand, you’ll notice
pelicans gliding gracefully in formation over the surf. It is
possible to walk for miles and only encounter a few others going
about their way. This is also a great area for swimming since the
reef shelters the shore from large waves. To the south of town
is "Magic Beach," where a break in the reef allows the waves to come
directly upon the shore bringing with them many varieties of
seashells and driftwood.

One of the most fascinating operations in Puerto Morelos is the
tortilla factory. Still the staple of the Mexican diet, tortillas
are made fresh daily. Edelberto, the baker, will hand you tortillas
hot off the fire, along with a smile. Another local favorite is
Niko’s BBQ chicken. A friendly outgoing Mayan, Niko will take your
order in the morning, barbeque it slowly over charcoal while he
bastes it with his special “secret Mayan sauce” and have it ready for
you at the time you choose. Absolutely mouthwatering, it is
something you must treat yourself to. One large chicken is 50 pesos
and worth every centavo! Both of these essentials are only steps
from the back door of Casa Merlot.

It may seem mere providence that has kept this pueblo intact while
the rest of the Yucatan's beaches experience exponential growth. It
is hardly that. The peacefulness of Puerto Morelos has been
preserved solely through the directed and hard-earned efforts of a
serious group of Puerto Morelos citizens and environmentalists who
have been actively campaigning against the powers that be to turn
this town into yet another emerging market for tourism.


Puerto Morelos was declared a national reef park by presidential
decree to preserve the beauty of the Palancar Reef which lies less
than one-half mile off the coast. The irony of this move is that now
many more tourist snorkeling boats from Cancun come down to this
beautiful reef to enjoy the clear blue waters.

Puerto Morelos dive masters tend to be sensitive to this natural
wonder and have a more environmental style with their clients
explaining how fragile the reef is and that even a mere touch can
destroy what took thousands of years to create. A local agency is
now in place that monitors activity within the confines of the reef
park, which will help to better preserve it.

Puerto Morelos has everything you need to live comfortably and
simply. It has all amenities: restaurants, ATM's, gift shops,
grocery stores, fruit market, book store, church, drugstore, travel
agency, car rentals, water sports concessions, money exchange,
Internet cafe, a medical clinic, and a wonderful town square where
people of all ages come to gather.

The ambiance of Puerto Morelos is very different from its larger and
more developed neighbor, Cancun and Playa del
Carmen. "Tranquil", "friendly", "artistic", "inclusive", "peaceful",
"ecologically-
minded', "restorative", "quaint", "relaxing", "unique", "quiet", --
these are words that locals and sojourners alike use to describe the
town.

We can not forget our exotic flora and fauna all around us.
Breathtaking sunsets and sunrises, accompanied by the sights and
sounds of birds in their natural habitat, are commonplace. In Puerto
Morelos, you are surrounded by the simple beauty of nature and
realize very quickly that humans are but one small part of a very
vast and complex universe.

Those who choose to stay in Puerto Morelos come to adopt its
unhurried pace and lifestyle, enjoying the unique opportunities for
both community and privacy that this tropical paradise offers.
Visitors repeatedly return to experience the renewal that being in
this environment brings to their lives.
