Re: snorkeling in Puerto Morelos
Yeah, what Crunch said. I've enjoyed snorkeling P.M. several times & think it's a great value. I've had the "guest host" at one of the all-inclusive's try to talk me out of just showing up there without a reservation, but never had a problem. It's cheap, it's not crowded & it's as pretty, with plenty to see, as any other area of the reef that I've snorkeled down there.
I also recommend the little upstairs, open air restaurant, just steps away from the dock. . . if it's open. I've eaten there under different owners, but the drinks were always cold, fish tacos always delicious, with a nice view & relaxing breeze.
It's been several years, but I do remember we saved about $40 per person doing it this way, including cost of the taxi & there were 4 of us.
