Our Favorite Spots in Puerto Morelos

It would be impossible to choose "THE BEST RESTAURANT", shop, or thing to do in Puerto Morelos - there are so many amazing options and, well, people differ.  Because we live here, we get asked all the time - "where do the locals go"? So we put our heads together and compiled this handy local guide, which is helpful, but not at all complete - there are so many other great spots we weren't able to feature - by all means, go out and explore Puerto Morelos - you won't regret it!
