Nestled between the two bustling tourist cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos gives you the chance to dance to a different beat. Villa Mateo is 4 km(2-1/2 miles) North of Puerto Morelos, a 10-15 minute car drive, depending on road conditions.
The quaint Mexican fishing village rests within the northern part of the “Riviera Maya” and boasts the world’s second largest barrier reef. It’s location inside the National Marine Park inspires the local community of Mexicans and foreigners to be active in the preservation of the reef and keep development of the area to a minimum.
Puerto Morelos offers a tranquil and safe atmosphere for families, friends and couples alike.
Puerto Morelos' location offers you the opportunity to appreciate the many different faces of Mexico. Only 20 minutes from the Cancun airport and 5 minutes from the bus terminal, it's a prime location for exploring the Yucatan Peninsula.
Whether you decide to travel to the near-by ruins or simply stay in Puerto Morelos, you can swim in cenotes, explore the jungles, snorkel in the reef, soak up the sun, and walk on the beach among plenty of other activities.
Ultimately, you determine the pace of your own visit. You can stay local in the serene beauty of nature or explore all the historical sites in the Yucatan. You can go out dancing or you can stay in and enjoy a beautiful dinner on the beach or in the Villa. Whatever you decide, welcome to Puerto Morelos!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Hi, we're Shirley & Eddie Bell, the owners of Villa Mateo. We live in Lubbock Texas and come down to Puerto Morelos as often as we can.
Having grown up and raised our family on the plains of Texas we've learned to love the warm breezes and wonderful sounds of the ocean we enjoy from our Mexican home.
We've traveled all over the USA as well as to Panama, Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras and many others. After looking for years for a second place to call home, we found the village we love on our first visit to Puerto Morelos in 2010. Finally, in early 2013, we were able to buy the oceanfront home we'd always dreamed of.
We look forward to your stay with us and hope you love Villa Mateo and Puerto Morelos, the little fishing village by the sea...and Cancun, as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Morelos: Villa Mateo offered everything we wanted in a vacation home. Oceanfront living with breathtaking views. Secluded, yet only a 20 minute ride to the bright lights of Cancun. 15 minutes drive to the Cancun airport. We stayed in and around Puerto Morelos on several occasions before we stumbled upon the Punta Caracol complex and Villa Mateo. Just a 10 minute drive from our home to the town square in Puerto Morelos, it has been perfect for us!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Secluded ocean front villa only minutes from Cancun and the international airport or the shops and restaurants of Puerto Morelos. Beautiful grounds and convenient to all of the Mayan Riviera.
