Beach Day in Puerto Morelos

14 Mar

Saturday was a fun day. Juan, Viri and Jorge picked me up from work at 1 pm to go down to the beach. We went to the beach at Puerto Morelos (about 20 minutes south of Cancun), which I’d never done before. I had no idea it was so beautiful! The beach is much wider than the beaches in Cancun and the sand was a little softer, plus there were no waves! Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres is still our favorite beach, but this comes in a close second.

    Hahaha – you know how much I LOOOOVE Puerto Morelos!!! We try and go there at least once a week, and yes, the beaches are much nicer to wade in 🙂

    Great pics – also, you work Saturdays?? BLAH!!

      Yeah, I work a half day on Saturdays (9 am to 1 pm) and I get 1 Saturday off every month. Kinda lame, because I know I could get just as much work done during the month if I didn’t have to come in Saturdays.

    I agree with your top 2 beach choices. And right up there with them is Maroma Beach.

      I’ve seen photos of Maroma Beach and it looks STUNNING! I’ll have to try to make it there this year to see if it makes the cut 🙂

    Ack, that is so beautiful. I SERIOUSLY need a vacation right now. So I guess I am just going to have to live vicariously through you. 😉

    the white sands juxtaposed with the blue sky is absolutely heavenly. And pitching that tent–you guys really know how to kick it in style!
