Best beachfront hotels in Puerto MorelosAzul Beach Resort Riviera Maya

Updated January, 2024

Choosing the best of the Puerto Morelos beach hotels with spa will make your waterfront vacation the very best it can be. Beachfront or waterfront hotels in Puerto Morelos offer beautiful sandy beaches, romantic settings and peaceful morning strolls. If you love beach vacations never settle for a hotel away from the beach. Choose from family friendly or adult only to make it the best beach vacation in beautiful Mexico Riviera Maya.


About: Puerto Morelos is a quiet little fishing town between the busier tourist towns of Cancun and Playa del Carmen along Mexico's Riviera Maya. Don't let this little town fool you though, if you are looking for a beautiful reef for snorkelling or scuba diving you will find the second largest barrier reef in the world, the Great Mesoamerican Reef. The ocean water is perfect for swimming at a beautiful and refreshing 27°C. or 80°F.. You will also find great freshwater cenotes with caves. This little town has a beautiful beach area, authentic Mexican restaurants and laid back atmosphere. It is perfect for those who don't want the busy tourist traps with shopping centers and franchise restaurants.

Best time to visit Puerto Morelos:  #1 rule: Don't be enticed by great prices on Puerto Morelos beach hotels during hurricane season. Hurricane season is (generally) from June to the beginning of December. Make it a memorable vacation for all the right reasons. These are the Annual weather averages for the Riviera Maya to help you make an informed decision and for a happy vacation. Also, regarding the very unpleasant sargassum seaweed which ruins the beaches... That season is generally between May and October each year. 

Things to do: There are so many things to do do in Puerto Morelos. ATV tours, horseback riding, snorkeling/scuba diving, swim in the cenotes, private boat tours, ... the list is quite endless really. Some tourists like to go on their own while others like to be a little more secure with professional tour guides. If you are of the latter please visit our partners at Viator which is a subsidiary of TripAdvisor.

Is Puerto Morelos safe?: Puerto Morelos is considered safe by many in the tourist industry. Of course there is petty crime as in most cities even in North America. However, we urge everyone to do their own research to ensure a safe vacation. Common sense is... use reputable tour companies as suggested in the above paragraph. Do not flash jewelry or money. Stay in tourist areas. Walk as a couple or group at night and in good public areas. 

Transportation: Puerto Morelos is pretty small so getting around by foot or bike is fairly popular, healthy and you get to enjoy the town, shops and restaurants. The people are very friendly as well. Cabs are readily available as well as shared mini vans. As always... and even in big U.S. cities... stay out of dark alleys etc.. Always exercise caution but enjoy the town.
