Puerto Morelos's Mascot - the Brown Pelican.
The Pelican had a symbolic meaning for the Mayan and where part of the headdress in ceremonies; the Mayan word for Pelican is p'onto', but we just like watching them dive for fish.

It's a charming small Caribbean town where the community consists of colorful artists, ex pats, local fishermen and flocks of Brown Pelicans; Puerto Morelos's mascot. You can sit and have a margarita and watch the town square where children play soccer with waves breaking on the reef in the background, and the local fishermen showing off their freshly caught grouper. The town of Puerto Morelos has a unique personality and high regard to the nature surrounding it. The Great Mayan Reef a National Park is only a short 200 yards from the beach and is an ideal place to enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving with a wide array of Caribbean fish.

Puerto Morelos, Mexico - Fishing Boats on beach done for the day.

Many of our renters over the years say they just love Puerto Morelos because "It reminds them of what Playa Del Carmen was like 20 or so years ago, a quaint Mexican Beach Town." The difference between Puerto Morelos and Playa Del Carmen is that Puerto Morelos has been able to maintain a low-key residential community; all the huge all-inclusive resorts are set apart from the actual town. Many of Puerto Morelos residents are working fishermen, and you will enjoy watching them arrive back to the pier in the afternoon with their boats full of fish, take an walk on the beach you will see the local fishing boats docked for the night.

Puerto Morelos is a unique Mexican seaside town which is the hidden serene tropical utopia that travelers long search for but most never find.

Puerto Morelos Church in Town Square

The Cancun and Playa Del Carmen lack the colonial town setting that most of the rest of Mexico has, however the exception is Puerto Morelos which has a town square surrounded by neighborhood shops, restaurants and the heart of the community the Church. The town square is the center of activity, most any night of the week there is a soccer game going on (Mexican's call it futbol), there is a playground area for the kids and a gazebo that at times have band playing and on Wednesdays the center of town host a farmers market.

Puerto Morelos's "Secret Neighbor"

Lying only six miles (10 k) south of Puerto Morelos is Playa Del Secreto (the Secret Beach); a hidden breathtaking mile long beach with a residential area of only a dozen or so villas, its Puerto Morelos's "Secret Neighbor". Playa Del Secreto is part of the city of Playa Del Carmen, but it wasn't always that way, for us whom have lived here for a while can remember getting our services like police and fire from Puerto Morelos. Even though for years now we have been legally part of Playa Del Carmen, we still think of ourselves as a subdivision of Puerto Morelos.

Playa Del Secreto beach is a turtle sanctuary where each year the residents mark and safeguard the new sea turtle nest from predators, just one of our efforts to be in harmony with the nature living here with us, the same eco priorities as the residents of Puerto Morelos.

We offer Puerto Morelos Vacation Homes located in the "Secret Neighbor" Playa Del Secreto, a safe gated residential community.

Come to Puerto Morelos Villas and let your kids experiance nature.

quote-symbol for Puerto Morelos Villas Testimonials Dear Liza and Miguel,
    Last week was the most relaxing vacation ever. The villa far exceeded my expectations and I can honestly say it is the nicest place Dave and I have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at a lot! The location is absolutely beautiful with a breathtaking view of the Caribbean. I could not believe all the amenities in the villa - way more than anywhere else. The bedrooms were inviting and tastefully decorated. I could not believe that every bedroom had their own en suite - no one had to share, which is huge when you have 8 people staying in one villa. The welcoming dinner was amazing and Miguel - you are quite the chef! There were lots of things you could do if you wanted to - from para sailing, sailing, water skiing, tours etc., but I just enjoyed relaxing by the pool, walking on the beach, reading and soaking up the sun. I would recommend your villas to anyone. Definitely a five star in my mind. Thanks for a great vacation.

quote-symbol for Puerto Morelos Villas Testimonials We just returned from a wonderful week vacation at The Secret Beach Villas in Playa Del Secreto. We stayed in the Shell Villa There were 8 of us four adults and four adult kids. We loved the Villa plenty of space and Liza and Miguel's attention to detail is amazing. The pool and the beach were beautiful and the staff keeps everything so clean. We felt very safe our whole trip we rented cars and went to Akumal and swam with the sea turtles. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We also had dinner and went shopping in Puerto Morelos very beautiful town. Would highly recommend staying in one of these villas everything is top notch.
