I love being so close to the ocean all the time rather than when you go to the beach like at other resorts. I am female and travel alone and feel perfectly welcome and safe in the town of Puerto Morelos. If you love to snorkel go down to the dock-maybe one block and talk with Jauquin and his guides will take you out to the reef. Great snorkeling and the water is warm. This town is not overly touristy and very international. Nothing fancy here just folks living in a happy place all trying to make ends meet - like most small towns anywhere. And like most small towns there are some areas that need some TLC, I would love to take a few cans of paint on another trip.
Jon & Alicia have made great improvements at their Casa Toucan and it is very comfortable with the important amenities you would expect from a hotel. Has a kitchen but I prefer to spend my money (take pesos) at restaurants to help the local economy. Prices are very reasonable for food. The exchange rate makes this area an economical trip - which is great if you want to have several trips!
I have stayed with quite a few All Inclusive resorts and been to 6 different Caribbean Islands in the last 5 years. But this place feels like a second home. I will never stay at another All Inclusive because you do not have a real life experience when traveling to a foreign country. One reason for traveling is to broaden your knowledge about how the rest of the world works and struggles. And I am very happy to have stayed at Casa Toucan and the friendly people of Puerto Morelos. And I can't wait to go back!
good location nice owners very comfortable just steps from the beach only a couple blocks from town center very relaxing
The location is amazing. The beach was right outside our door. It is within a half a block to the town square and many great restaurants. We will definitely visit again.
This was the perfect place to stay in Puerto Morelos for my husband and I. Everything is within walking distance - downtown, beach is right out the patio door of Toucan 3. Hosts were wonderful and very helpful. We had a very nice visit with Alicia on our last night in Puerto Morelos. We definitely hope to return again and would recommend staying here to anyone and everyone.
The Location of Casa Toucan is excellent. Our covered deck was right next to the beach so it was perfect for people and boat watching. Jon and Alicia are great hosts. Jon's Movie/Music/Photos selection on his network was great and I was able to dock my IPhone and play my own music using his speakers as well. We could even hear our music on the deck.
Casa Toucan is spectacular! Couldn't ask for a better location, comfort and most gracious hosts. This is the second time we have visited PM at Casa Toucan and will hope to visit again and again. Three minute walk to the town square, fabulous restaurants, kind people, quiet and lazy. Casa Toucan is two step to the beach with wonderful views and wondrous sunrises. The small complex is undergoing a renovation and will prove to be even more comfortable and spectacular than it ever was. Although right on the beach, it is beyond quiet, safe and secure. Love, love this place.

The owner is very personable and ready to help you in any way. The surroundings are kept really clean, and housekeeping is great. It is close to town and all the amenities. I liked best the pool and spa. It was very quiet.
