Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo

Puerto Morelos is a city located about halfway between the major tourist hubs of Cancun and Playa del Carmen in the Quintana Roo state in southeastern Mexico. It lies along the Caribbean Sea and is home to a population of approximately 9,200 people.

Most residents are locals, but the population of ex-pats, both full-time and part-time, has been increasing in recent years. Highway 307 divides the city and provides easy access to other nearby communities. Puerto Morelos, one of the oldest communities in the area, is a traditional fishing village and offers a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the larger tourist areas nearby.

Its location is ideal for those who want to live close to amenities, but not necessarily in the middle of noisy larger cities. Spanish is spoken here for the most part, but with an increased number of English-speaking ex-pats, English is becoming more common in the area. Most people travel to Puerto Morelos by flying into Cancun and taking a bus or shuttle to the community.

Puerto Morelos also has a number of natural and cultural attractions that draw people to the area.

The city is known as a retirement community to some extent, though the option to work remotely or run a business remotely from the area is available due to phone and internet connections (although these can sometimes be expensive). Along with an increase in tourism and ex-pat residents, the area has seen increased real estate business, both for permanent or part-time residency, as well as investment properties that are rented to tourists.

One of the community’s oldest industries is fishing, something that is still going strong today.
