This week in Puerto Morelos – June 11-18, 2021

Date: June 10, 2021

Hello Summer!

Well, it’s definitely summertime in Puerto Morelos! The days are longer (and hotter, and wetter) and the ocean is warming up. Unfortunately this warmer weather has brought some sargasso to our beaches. Ugh. The city is working on keeping it in check, and it’s certainly not the worst sargasso “bloom” we’ve seen, but still it’s a huge bummer. The good news is that there are plenty of other things to do and see in (and within a short distance of) Puerto Morelos, even while we are still not back to “normal” due to the ongoing COVID restrictions.

One great option this time of year (sargasso or no sargasso!) is to visit the cenotes. Beautiful but full of mystery and magic at the same time, cenotes or sinkholes are the prettiest jewels of the Yucatan Peninsula. Sheltered by the jungle, swimming in a Mexican cenote is an adventure that you can’t miss while you’re here. Cenotes are natural deep-water wells (sinkholes), which are fed by the filtration of rain and by the currents of underground rivers that are born in the heart of the earth.

If you’ve never been to a cenote, you’re in for a treat! Each one is unique, but they are all pretty magical. And they are all cool, crystal clear water year round! It’s a great way to cool off and discover the magic of the Mayan jungle. A few options close by are Cenote Zapote , Cenote 7 Bocas and Cenote Kin Ha.

ALSO, we probably don’t need to tell you this but there are some amazing restaurants in Puerto Morelos. If you like good food, this is the place to be! And over the past month we’ve seen a bunch of new restaurants open up – we will do some local hot spot posts about these soon, but if you’re in town this week, think about checking out Pecao in the colonia (we are HOOKED on this cute place with fresh, interesting food!) and Pizza & Love (right next door to Pecao and sooo goood), also El Refugio “In Tacos We Trust” is opening up where DK used to be, south of the main square on the port side.

FINALLY – Moving to Mexico Monday on Zoom is back next Monday night! The registration link is below!
