The nearest village is Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village which has been escaped the ravages of construction and tourism. Previously the center for the production of gum for the US chewing gum market cultivated from the chicle, Puerto Morelos is now better know for having the second largest coral reef. This is protected by the National Marine Park and local commitment to preservation of the environment which has kept development of the area to a minimum.
Puerto Morelos has numerous restaurants, bars and stores. The fishing boats are moored along the seafront and local fishermen bring their catch to the pier
Take a course in Mexican Cooking and join in yoga on the beach at 8.15 each morning. There are many yoga centers in Puerto Morelos.
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. Souvenir items, jewelery, and clothing are all available. The handicraft market shows and sells regional folk art, clothing, and crafts. View hammocks being made at one family’s craft booth.
Alma Libre Libros –the largest English-language bookstore on the coast holds thousands of English language books and is useful for guide books. Trade in your used books for credit. Open October – April.
Snorkeling – See the fantastic coral refs just offshore from Puerto Morelos. Hire a boat and guide from the various businesses in Puerto Morelos.
Diving – Explore the world’s second largest reef. Hire a boat and guide from the village of Puerto Morelos and float above the glorious corals, fish, sting rays and turtles.
Fishing – The fishing boats can pick you up on front of Villa Mateo and take you for a few hours of deep sea fishing. You can catch barracuda, grouper, and billfish. Cook your catch at home in the evening.
Croco-Cun Zoo – At the turning point from Highway 307 to Villa Mateo 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.
Close to Villa Mateo
Villa Mateo is an ideally situated for further exploration of the Riviera Maya.
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.
1 kilometer south of the turning point to Puerto Morelos is the Yaax Che-Jardin Botanico Dr Alfredo Barrera for native Yucatán plant life, spider monkeys and birds. Labels are in English, Spanish, and Latin. There is also a nursery, orchid garden, a reproduction of a chiclero, a Mayan house, and an archaeological site. A nature walk through the mangroves makes for excellent bird watching and occasional monkey sightings. A tree-house lookout also provides an sensational view.
Further south, take the Ruta de los Cenotes inland to Central Vallarta and Leona Vicario. Along the way are many cenotes, limestone sinkholes, some developed for visitors and other still hidden and unused. The Mayans considered cenotes to be scared gateways to the underworld. These are both underground and open. 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. See Boca del Puma at the 16 km mark on the road to Central Vallarta but there are others. The Selvatica zip line resort consistently wins awards for best theme park in this area.
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 Mateo is located within easy distance of Cancun airport, a 20 – 30 minute drive and just beyond that is Cancun centro itself.
Cinepolis VIP, in the Plaza las Americas Mall in Cancun, has large leather recliners, waiters, and restaurants. Most movies are in English with Spanish subtitles. Yak is the finest Bingo you’ll ever play. As numbers are called they light up on giant number boards (convenient for those who are not familiar with Spanish numbers) and every round has several winners. You can also bet on horse and greyhound racing upstairs in the sports bar.
Golf – Whether you brought your clubs along or want to rent some for the day, there are several fine courses available for public play.
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, Q.R., Mexico:
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.
