About Jordan Thompson

Jan was born in Canada, to British and German parents. After we left Canada, she and I lived in Indiana for 16 years, with our children and eventually found ourselves kidless again, so we volunteered with Hispanic folk in that area for the last two years there. This prompted us to move here to help even more in our volunteer work, this time with Brazilians in Riviera Maya, as I, Jordan, was born in Brasil to Canadian parents and have a longing to be near the ocean and to help people. So we teach and translate English to try and make ends meet.

Jordan Thompson purchased this studio in 2014

Why Jordan Thompson chose Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos is a hidden gem, between two gigantically growing beach cities cluttered with hotels and all inclusives, costing so much money! We love the tranquility and safety of this area, and we are here in this part of Puerto Morelos, Villas la Playa, because it is quieter, not too close to the loud music, traffic and tourism in the Port area.

What makes this studio unique

economical, live amongst our friends, the locals in Puerto Morelos. Not far from cenotes on the cenote trail (5 minutes to the Cenote road), Croco Cun Zoo - interact with wildlife, jungle tours, eco excursions etc. you are 20 minutes from the airport, 30 to Playa del Carmen, 30 to Cancun, 45 to Tulum, Akumal (turtle) bay, Paamul etc.

We're practical.

I had a great stay with Jordan and Janet " the hosts" ,the room was adequate ,clean and equipped .close enough to the beach but not close , close to town .

They were really friendly and knowledgeable no complaints also the cost was very reasonable.

Word of caution avoid the local Restaurants in the old town unless you want to be poisoned .

I would definitely go back. Michael Timms

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, i just read your review of our place. I don't believe we misrepresented its location nor can we control where and what you ingest, especially in Mexico. We feel bad you felt sick, and we are sorry you found it so far to go to town etc. We have never had either of those complaints lodged at us on any of the rental sites, nor do we think it should affect our rating of our listing, which, 3 stars is the lowest we have had. And this, especially in view of the time and effort we put in taking you around and helping you with contacts. We wish you would reconsider your rating of our location. Thanks, Jordan and Jan

We stayed here the first week of January, 2016. Jordan offered to give us a ride from Cancun, where we were staying for the previous week. He also gave us a ride at 5am to the airport, which was wonderful to have that all arranged, before hand. Jordan was a great host, very friendly and helpful.... way beyond what was expected. As far as the studio, it was perfect for us. It was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It was well - equipped with everything we needed. I would 100% recommend this place for anyone. Thank you so much for the hospitality!!!

Puerto Morelos

We are situated in a newly constructed suburb of Puerto Morelos, on the West side of the highway 307. We are close to the Botanical Gardens, the Crococun Zoo, with baby crocs and big ones, anaconda, etc; and the Cenote route, with its 19 commercialized cenotes that offer zip lining over the forest and waters, ATV boogying around, and swimming and snorkelling on these crystaline fresh waters from caved-in underground rivers and caves.

15 minute bike ride away, you reach our beach club, which provides umbrella, two pvc lounge chairs and small table. There you will find the touristy souvenier shops and flea market, plus seafood, (true) Mexican, Italian, Uruguayan, Argentine and other quaint restaurants and coffee shops, pubs, snorkel and scuba trips to the reef etc. You can also just snorkel off shore to some coral heads and see a great variety of life, including, eagle ray, parrotfish, angelfish and barracuda.

We can also offer day trips to the Tulum ruins and Akumal, where off shore you can swim with big turtles.
