Go Snorkeling or Scuba Diving

Snorkeling and Scubadiving in Puertos Morelos is very popular. The Mesoamerican Reef System is so close to the shore that it forms a natural barrier for the town and keeps the waters really calm and shallow.

Help a Local Charity

The Little English Schoolhouse is a non-profit project started in 
Puerto Morelos to bring English to the local Spanish speaking 
adults and children.

Although English is taught in the local schools, it is not at a level 
that provides the students a real "working” fluency.  Additionally,  
most families do not have the funds to  send their children to 
English programs.  For many of this future generation, English 
skills can provide opportunities they would never encounter
