Hello to all,
My husband, myself and two children, (22 and 19) are headed to Puerto Morelos in a couple of weeks and are very excited!
I have a few questions that I hope can be answered here.
First a little background, will be in PM for 5 nights at an AI (El Cid). We plan on hanging at the hotel for a day and then would like to explore the area. My kids have never been to an AI before so that should be quite exciting for them.
1. Would like to go snorkeling in the reef and saw the TA site for it. Is there a place that can link to the local dive shops in order to set up an early morning trip? Does anyone have names of local dive shops? Is there a Puerto Morelos visitor web site?
2. Thought about either visiting Cozumel or Isla Mujeres. Not sure for my kids which they might like better. With PM being so laid back, is cozumel better for adventure or excitement/sites, or can we get that just by going to Playa del Carmen?
3. We would like to visit Chichen Itza, ( we think). I understand it is a drive but we would leave extemely early so that it doesn't end up into late evening. Should we rent a car for one day? Is this workable from Puerto Morales? Some things I have read make me skeptical on renting a vehicle.
4. We love local spots and would love any advice on PM that would give us the local flavor.
I am sure I will have more questions as I look through my notes. I am a planner and love to have a good feel for the place I am headed to!
Please and Thank you
