They seriously have cravings for these delectable morsels of pure yumminess! They make this a kind of ritual now whenever they are in Puerto.
Coming along the road to the beach by local taxi that connects from the Carretera federal (main highway), They were immediately enthralled by the density of the manglar (mangrove swamp) on both sides. At a certain point, the right side is revealed, merely prior to reaching the town of Puerto Morelos, a clearing in the manglar where the sun puts the mysterious swampy liquid in the spotlight & you begin to wonder about its depth. The creatures that lurk about come to thought & you envision yourself wandering through the swamp in galoshes with suspenders that have built-in rubber boots. Of course, who knows how deep it would be and we are pretty sure at one point you'd be forced to board some kind of a small vessel that would arrive out of nowhere or else be engulfed by the murky waters & eaten alive by crocodiles!

Travelers have had some of the best snorkeling experiences here and the colorful coral formations laden with marine life will exceed your expectations. They came face to face with a barracuda once just before sundown who was hanging out quite close to shore which frightened the daylights out of them! They can still see the pointed visage and its beattie eyes that had so much intention behind them that They frantically swam as quickly as they possibly could with their heart pounding out of the traveler's chest! They have seen numerous stingrays too that tend to come out after 4 pm. All-inclusive, the calmness of the sea makes it an ideal place for both swimming as well as playing in the waves that seldom become too unruly. Strolling along the main square & riding a bike through this town without vehicular traffic as in Playa del Carmen or Cancun, is an added bonus and a fun thing to do. There’s a memorable weekly Wednesday market from eight am to one pm located to the west of the town square beside the church on Avenida Tulum. The market provides fresh produce, homemade meals, and baked goods, as well as local artisans & the sellers, change on a weekly basis.

The Jamaica (hibiscus) and tamarindo (tamarind) flavors are most travelers' absolute favorites and the seafood platter for sharing has delectable ahi tuna, octopus, scallops and giant shrimp is out of this world!
Another notable favorite is called Punta Corcho which is located in the village, a little further away from the waterfront, and offers a beautiful risotto de mariscos (seafood risotto) & a mouthwatering seafood pozole, a type of soup whose base is made from the grains of corn & usually served with pork or chicken. This version however was something a little out of the ordinary as well as really good! The view of the water and the village from above is quite spectacular and the ambiance is kinda romantic.
The Cafe de Amancia is a fine chill spot at the end of the day with an americano & a good book. The only annoyance is the gigantic and aggressive mosquitos that come out after 4 pm. Word of advice: Bring long pants and long-sleeved shirts if you’re going to stay in the late afternoon into the evening to avoid getting bitten sixty-five times and not even realizing it until you get home. The margaritas from Il Mercadito should have clearly numbed travelers’ senses!
