ABOUT PUERTO MORELOS

Originally the port was built to ship out chicle (the magic ingredients in chewing gum) to the rest of the world and a town grew up around the farming and shipping business at the turn of the last century. Nowadays, Puerto Morelos is a seaside village with an ever-growing population, mainly occupied with tourism. There is also a large expat community of many nations adding to the variety of the town.  The community is strong and united in its desire to keep Puerto Morelos small and not as commercial as its closest neighbours Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

Puerto Morelos is ideally situated only 15 minutes south of Cancun's busy international airport and within easy access of the region's many and varied natural attractions, including the Grand Mayan Reef which lies just offshore and is a Maritime Reserve.

The town is said to have a spirit of its own, accepting some people and not others. Puerto Morelos exerts a strange pull over some people - be careful you may never leave.

 

DIRECTIONS TO CASA CARIBE

 

From Cancun:

Coming from the airport in Cancun, or from Cancun, you will approach from the North. When you see the signs to Puerto Morelos, take the access road on the right and turn left under the bridge. Drive the 2 kilometers towards the beach. When you see the Police Station on the left and the Parque on the right, turn left. Drive three blocks. You will pass a big empty lot on the left, and then you will see us, two doors further along on the left. You will need to drive to the end of the block and make a U-turn to get to the front of the building.

 

From Riviera Maya:

From the rest of the Rivera Maya, you will approach from the South. When you get to the appalling big access bridge at Puerto Morelos, take the access road alongside the bridge, and then turn right at the bridge. Drive the 2 kilometers towards the beach.
