Nice beach front eats

Stopped here for dinner on our way down the coast to our lodging after arriving at Cancun International. Not too far of a drive, low key town center, beachfront, good food.

Everything we got was really good here and the view was wonderful as they are right on the beach with their own pier. Whereas some other restaurants had more intensive and varieties of flavors, this restaurant tends to be centered on the tourists with the limited/"typical" flavors. That said, it's still good and we ate here three times! Waiters speak... More

Upon arrival in Puerto Morelos, for my first dinner I chose to go to this restaurant mainly because a woman at the Cancun Airport recommended this establishment. I should have consulted Trip Advisor but I was tired and just wanted a nice dinner in the only restaurant overlooking the beach in Puerto Morelos. While the service was satisfactory, the menu...

Not all of the restaurants in Progreso serve right on the sand, but Pelicano's does. It's fun to be close to the water and burrow your feet in the sands while drinking your cold beer and eating your fresh fish. Pelican's is a fine option for this type of lunch. There are variations in the restaurants that serve on the... More

The location is great, sit outside and enjoy the ocean, the breeze and a really good margarita. They have a great variety of food on the menu and it is all quite good. It is one of the more expensive places to eat in Puerto Morelos, but the service is good and the food is fantastic. If you are a... More

Pelicano's is the best thing in Puerto Morelos. A nice and large restaurant right next to the ocean, it gives you the opportunity of sitting outdoors and enjoy the view, or indoors under the tall thatched roof. You cannot miss the place, as its building is flanked by statues of pelicans all alongside. Service is fast and cordial, waitstaff understands... More

Great location! The food is good and the drinks are great. I've been here with my family for lunch and for dinner as a couple. Local style red snapper was fantastic!

The restaurant is at the beach, you can have a great breakfast on the weekend sitting at the terrace with a beach view and enjoying live mexican music. They also served catch of the day fish and other mexican dishes

Nice place right on the beach, has a patio that overlooked the beach. Near snorkeling and other fun things. We didn't eat here but they were busy and menu looked very good. Right near all the shopping too, so if you like to snorkel and shop this is a good place to be and have lunch.
