Puerto Morelos is a port town on on Yucatán Peninsula, located in Mexico's Quintana Roo state, approx 36 km (22 ml) south of Cancun and approx 30 km (19 ml) north Playa del Carmen. The town has population around 10,000.
As state's oldest, largest and most important seaport, Puerto Morelos has dedicated cargo terminal with capacity to handle large-sized boxships.
In December 2015, Puerto Morelos merged with the neighbouring village Leona Vicario and became Quintana Roo's 11th municipality. Highway 307 and a mangrove swamp divide the town into three sections - Colonia Joaquin Zetina Gazca (west of the highway), Colonia Pescadores (east of the highway) and Antiguo Puerto Morelos (the coastal area east of the swamp). Local economy is based on seaport services, commercial fishing and tourism (hotels, condos, restaurants, souvenir shops).
