Puerto Morelos Fishing

 

Puerto Morelos is a small fishing town that has some beautiful beaches . It is only 20 minutes to the south of Cancun at Riviera Maya’s northern part, so you can easily visit Puerto Morelos from Cancun in a day trip. In the main square of the town is a pier where many boats will depart for their fishing trips. Next to the pier is an old lighthouse that leans from the assault of a past hurricane.

But, for many locals, the fishing tradition to fulfill their basic needs still exists. For this reason, the guides here are true experts in Puerto Morelos fishing. The feel of the small town is so laid back and welcoming, you won’t forget this trip. It is considered an excellent alternate location to Cancun for a fishing adventure.
