The Destination
Halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen on Mexico's Riviera Maya, Puerto Morelos has grown from a fishing port into a premier travel destination because of its close proximity to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Less than a mile offshore, the world's second-largest reef system makes these Caribbean beaches prime snorkeling and scuba diving territory. Average temperatures range from low 70s in winter to low 80s in the summer, so anytime is the right time to visit Puerto Morelos.

The Digs
Ocean Coral & Turquesa is an upscale, all-inclusive resort perched on an enviable stretch of beach in Puerto Morelos. Suites each feature one king or two double beds and amenities like a private bathroom, sitting area, balcony, and flat-screen plasma TV with satellite programming. Beyond your accommodations, the resort boasts seven dining options ranging from bistro coffee and crêpes to teppanyaki and hearty Italian cuisine.

The Diversions
First on the list for any Riviera Maya vacation should be quality time at the beach. But at a resort like this one, you'll need to make time for a plethora of other experiences. Make an appointment at Despacio Spa Centre for a classic massage or after-sun facial. Or, get active with sports like windsurfing, kayaking, and tennis at no additional cost. For those interested in exploring the deep, Dive It! Diving Center offers PADI courses, snorkeling trips, and trips to the Riviera Maya cenotes.
