7 Ways to Visit Puerto Morelos Without Leaving Your Couch

Date: April 10, 2020

Don’t get up!

Hello from Puerto Morelos, where the weather is unbelievably beautiful but most of you can’t get down here to enjoy it….

Even though you can’t visit in person at the moment, we have put together some great options for visiting Puerto Morelos without leaving your couch! How, you may ask? The magic of TV, my friends. Check out these Mexico Life and House Hunters International television episodes featuring our beloved little village. You’ll definitely recognize some of your favorite spots in town, and probably many of the people (including us).

Unfortunately, we can’t give you a link to stream the episodes directly, as we aren’t allowed to post or broadcast them in any way, but both of these shows air on HGTV and, if you have a cable package or service with on demand streaming, you may be able to see the episodes for free.

If that isn’t an option, you can purchase them very inexpensively on Amazon Prime (and actually, they may be included in your Prime package – they aren’t included in ours because we are in Mexico) and we’ve linked the appropriate pages below.

Happy remote viewing! We do hope you all are healthy and we hope to see you back here in Puerto Morelos soon!
