Sleek all-suite resort with spacious rooms, a top-notch spa and tranquil setting between Cancún and Playa del Carmen
For those seeking the famed sun, sand and sea scene of Cancún but craving a more tranquil ambience, this all-suite resort set between Cancún and Playa del Carmen offers the best of both worlds. As the name suggests, the vibe is more residential than at a standard hotel, with lots of room to move around and thoughtful amenities in each room like fridges, small kitchenettes and Jacuzzi-style tubs. A plethora of activities are available, from active and outdoorsy (snorkeling, deep sea fishing, ziplining, golf) to low-key (ceramic painting and card games). The resort also offers fun diversions including salsa lessons, cocktail classes and tequila tastings. The decadent spa, meanwhile, has a comprehensive menu that includes everything from bamboo massage to jade, gold and silver body wraps.
In the Area
Puerto Morelos’s main claim to fame is the extraordinary snorkeling and diving on the Great Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the world’s second-largest. (It's close to shore here, making it a boon for snorkelers.) Kit up at Wet Set, which offers scuba instruction, snorkeling and even swimming with whale sharks in season. Afterward, refuel at one of the town’s laid-back beach restaurants; Doña Triny’s is a popular spot for enchiladas and chiles relleños, while El Pirata specializes in Argentinean-style steaks cooked on an open grill. Don’t miss checking out some of the area’s famous cenotes, limestone sinkholes filled with crystal-clear freshwater, ideal for cooling off on a hot day. Las Mojarras is set within an eco-park and offers a zipline and tower for jumping into the pool, while the Boca del Puma has a magical jungle setting and offers other activities such as horseback riding and ATV adventures.
