There is water everywhere in Puerto Morelos. Reef snorkeling and diving is in a protected marine park on the second largest reef in the world.
Cenote Road is full of cenotes. We recently checked out Kin Ha cenote that has over 12 explored cenotes in one location. Woo hoo! If you take the less expensive package at Kin Ha you will see two cenotes. If you opt for their full day package you will explore more cenotes on ATV’s.
