One of the reasons people choose an Adult-only resort is the peace and quiet it offers and Cancun is one of the most well-known destinations on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatán Peninsula offering just that. Recently, though, it has become packed with tourists and is starting to lose the small-town charm it once offered. As a result, more and more travelers are starting to look into nearby destinations to find their Adult-only getaway with many of them choosing Puerto Morelos as their base.
Located 40km south of Cancun on the way to Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos offers travelers a unique and authentic taste of Mexico, far from the crowds and commercialization of its neighboring cities. Puerto Morelos has managed to retain its original fishing village character and is known for its laid-back and relaxed atmosphere while offering a range of locally-run restaurants, cafes and hotels, providing visitors with a more intimate and personal experience. The town's pristine beaches are perfect for swimming, snorkeling and diving and the warm waters of the Caribbean are home to a diverse range of marine life.
Recognizing this shift in visitor trends, the Travelmyth team has put together a long list of Adult-only resorts in Puerto Morelos, a small taste of which is featured here:
The El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa is a 5-star, gourmet inclusive resort located on a stretch of beach with pristine white sand and turquoise waters. Welcoming its guests with a glass of sparkling wine and a refreshing towel, this resort is one of a kind.
Featuring one of the largest pools in the area, the luxurious, 5-star, all-inclusive Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya is not to be missed. Offering luxurious and spacious rooms, guests will also enjoy the abundance of amenities including 7 à la carte restaurants, premium Wi-Fi, 11 bars, 24-hour room service, daily activities, nightly entertainment and a spectacular and secluded 1km long beach.
Offering mesmerizing ocean views and gourmet room service, the Secrets Riviera Cancún Resort & Spa is one of the most romantic options in the area. With 164 rooms and suites including the option of accommodation with direct access to a swim-up pool, guests will never want to return home.
