Puerto Morelos travel tip of the day – Protected marine park

puerto morelos national marine park locogringo

This is a local well-known tip but not necessarily a well-known vacationers tip. Puerto Morelos, located to the south of Cancun but to the north of Playa del Carmen, Akumal, and Tulum. This small fishing village is the home of a protected marine park that is great for scuba diving and snorkeling. Many scuba divers travel to Puerto Morelos to see the wreck, a difficult but wonderful dive, that does require special entrance into the marine park. Each diver and snorkeler will need to pay an extra 2 USD that goes directly to the conservation of the reef. This portion of the reef is part of the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican reef!
