About the neighbourhood
The nearest village is Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village which has been escaped the ravages of construction and tourism. Previously the centre for the production of gum for the US chewing gum market cultivated from the chicle, Puerto Morelos has the second largest coral reef. The original lighthouse leans askew since Hurricane Beulah in 1966. There are numerous restaurants, bars and stores. The fishing boats are moored along the seafront and local fishermen bring their catch to the pier. Have a massage on the beach or make an appointment for the masseuse to come to your holiday home. There is a variety of shops in and around the town square. At Puerto Morelas you will find idyllic snorkelling, diving and fishing. Croco-Cun Zoo – At the touring from Highway 307 to Villa Carac...
