About this location
The Riviera Maya region
Villa Caracol is just south of Cancun, north of Puerto Morelos on the Riviera Maya, the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Easy access to Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
Playa del Carmen – Located just 25 minutes south of Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen is definitely worth visiting. Its main street, 5th Avenue, is teeming with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Playa is also home to beautiful beaches and the ferry to reach Cozumel. At least plan on spending one afternoon enjoying the town and having dinner at one of its great restaurants.
Villa Caracol is located within easy distance of Cancun airport, a 20 – 30 minute drive. It is in striking distance of busy Cancun for shopping, cinema and other city activities.
The nearest village is Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village which has been escaped the ravages of construction and tourism. Previously the centre for the production of gum for the US chewing gum market cultivated from the chicle, Puerto Morelos has the second largest coral reef. The original lighthouse leans askew since Hurricane Beulah in 1966.
There are numerous restaurants, bars and stores. The fishing boats are moored along the seafront and local fishermen bring their catch to the pier. Have a massage on the beach or make an appointment for the masseuse to come to your holiday home. There is a variety of shops in and around the town square.
At Puerto Morelas you will find idyllic snorkelling, diving and fishing.
Croco-Cun Zoo – At the touring from Highway 307 to Villa Caracol is the Croco-Cun Zoo with a collection of crocodiles and other indigenous animals . Offers immensely informative tours (available in English) and opportunities to hold baby crocs and feed the deer.
From the highway to the coast, you will travel though peaceful mangroves full of herons and white ibises. At the coast, watch the pelicans flying overhead and diving for fish.
From Villa Caracol, explore further afield.
Visit the cenotes, limestone sinkholes, some developed for visitors and other still hidden and unused. Swim, snorkel and scuba dive in them either as part of a tour or independently. Many of the cenotes have been developed with zip wires, All Terrain Vehicles and jumping boards. There is a charge for these.
The great Mayan Ruins of Tulum and Chichén Itzá, one of the new seven wonders of the world are a day trip from Villa Caracol.
Xcaret – Once a sacred Mayan city and port, Xcaret (pronounced ish-car-et) is now a 250 acre ecological theme park on a gorgeous stretch of coastline. Tastefully designed and executed and efficiently administered, it's well worth a visit without and especially with children.

There is sometimes sea grass on the beach because the reef and ocean here are living and healthy. The amount of grass depends upon the season and tides. The grass has no odour and is not slimy or unpleasant. Beaches without sea grass can be found north or south within a five minute walk along the coast where the resorts rake the beaches. All beaches in Mexico are public and are therefore for your use so it is easy to avoid the sea grass if preferred!
