If you are looking for fun and adventure while you are InPuertoMorelos we recommend the following:
Scuba Diving – if you are looking to spend some time blowing bubbles, we are lucky to have several good shops right in town. The one that we recommend is Om Delfin. The owner Delphine is an instructor, dive master and fully certified cave diver so she can take you to the best sites and cenotes in the area. With over 18 years of leading divers on underwater adventures, her enthusiasm is contagious. If you are staying at a resort, skip their dive shop and use one of the ones in town, you will save a plethora of pesos. To reach Delphine and her team visit their website at Om Delfin or in their shop in Hacienda Morelos. Their local number is 998-108-1683.
Snorkeling – Our main attraction in Puerto Morelos is our Federally protected healthy reef which attracts thousands of fish, creatures and plant life. There are a variety of ways to book a snorkel trip, the easiest is just to head down to the dock and catch the next boat going out. It’s a quick boat ride to the reef and they should take you to two different locations. Cost is about 25 USD or peso equivalent, which includes Park admission. Make sure you receive a wristband. The money from the sale of the band goes to protect the reef. All the guides are trained. If the guide “Charlie Brown” is available, go with him. He’s a special guy. You can also arrange a trip through one of the Dive Shops or with Diving Dog Tours.
Fishing – We always recommend Kathy Loretta of Puerto Morelos Fishing. She has the best boats and crew. Daytime phone 998-848-8819. Evening phone 998-206-9206. Cell Phone 998-201-9805. She speaks English and Spanish. Alternatively, you can go down to the dock and talk to one of the captains there or arrange something through one of the dive shops. You can also arrange snorkelling this way.
