Description of the Puerto Morelos vacation condo rental
At the north end of our amazing town stands Casita Blanca, a small, family owned and run condominium which tastefully fits into our gorgeous surroundings. Our unit has two bedrooms , two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (full fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blender, electric OJ squeezer, pots, pans, dishes, etc.) and living room with a fold out futon couch. We are completely air conditioned but during most seasons, with the ceilings fans on, the windows and large sliding glass doors open, it isn’t even necessary. There’s a television with a DVD player and a library of films and compilations of some favorite shows. We also have a wireless for those of you who travel with a laptop and want to stay in touch. We are totally wheelchair accessible and have a beach wheelchair that can be loaned to anyone in need. There’s an on site restaurant, Tuna (right on the ocean) which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (great civiche and French fries) and has live music Friday and Saturday nights. We also have a car rental service on premises and can arrange for airport transportation. Our cost covers twice a week maid service and an endless supply of drinking water.
Puerto Morelos is the last standing fishing village on the Mayan Riviera. If you’re looking for a big, generic resort area where you’re not exactly sure which country you’re in, we’re not for you. Puerto Morelos has a town square (zocalo), a Catholic church (fresh fruit and vegetables are sold in front of it every Wednesday morning), a fisherman’s co-op (catch of the day, every day), grocery store with all your staples, craft’s market, a small walkway by the sea (malecon) and Mexican restaurants with views of the ocean. While maintaining its authenticity PM has opened its borders and heart to an international community. There is an English book store, Chinese and Italian restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries. Our town has been able to preserve its integrity because it is protected in many ways:
1) Federally protected mangroves (wetlands) that seriously inhibit development. Our town ranges from 3 to 4 blocks deep.
2) A barrier reef about 1 mile from shore which is part of the Mexican National Park keeps out big speed boats, jet skis and provides us with wonderful snorkeling and scuba. Because the waves break out on the reef we are provided with perfect kayaking and swimming waters (safe for children).
3) A working port at the South End of town.
4) An extensive marine biologist lab at the North end.
5) No buildings can be built more than 3 stories high.
Miraculously, Puerto Morelos has not only survived the overdevelopment of the Mayan Riviera but benefited from it. A marvelous feature which adds to the ease of vacationing in PM is that it’s only 15 minutes from the Cancun airport. There are so many relatively short, inexpensive, direct flights into Cancun. In Puerto Morelos you can enjoy the best of the Yucatan without the hustle of Cancun or the traffic of Playa del Carmen.

We had a wonderful time at the Casita Blanca and would definitely consider another vacation there. Roberto was very accomodating and gracious.
Everything went smoothly.
We loved the beach and the snorkeling. We also took am excursion to Xcaret and enjoyed it. One remarkable thing was that no one tried to braid Katie's hair or sell us stuff on the beach.
