One of the best Puerto Morelos Snorkeling Tour while Staying in Cancun

Puerto Morelos, a charming and typically Mexican fishing village, is located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Its coral reef, listed as a Marine Park and stretching for miles along the coast, is probably the most beautiful and best preserved in the Riviera Maya. Venturing in a snorkeling trip on the reef, you will see rays, turtles, barracudas and a vast variety of colorful coral and fish.

The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, also popularly known as the Great Mayan Reef or Great Maya Reef, is a marine region that stretches over 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) from Isla Contoy at the tip of the Yucatán Peninsula down to Belize, Guatemala and the Bay Islands of Honduras. The reef system includes various protected areas and parks including the Belize Barrier Reef, Arrecifes de Cozumel National Park, Hol Chan Marine Reserve (Belize), Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve, and the Cayos Cochinos Marine Park. Belize’s coastline, including the Belize Barrier Reef, is home to approximately 30% of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. The reef system is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk and more than 500 species of fish.
