As Mexico's Caribbean coast continues to expand its development, some areas manage to retain the small town feel that began drawing crowds in the first place.  This is true of Puerto Morelos, a spot that is popular among tourists without being overdeveloped.  With the barrier reef just off the coast, diving and snorkeling are the top activity, but it also makes for some pretty good fishing.  On shore, there is a pleasant market for shoppers to take advantage of, and cenote diving is an exciting alternative to reef diving.
