Protecting the Reef
|Puerto Morelos has been become famous in this area for it's extraordinary
snorkeling experiences. The reason? By designating this area
as a National Marine Park, measures have been put in place to protect the reef
from damaging, human, behavior. Every snorkel guide must have taken a
course and be licensed to conduct reef tours in the park.

REMEMBER: LOOK BUT DON’T TOUCH.
