Distance to puerto morelos from el cid

We are staying at el cid the first week in july and I was wondering if it is walking distance to puerto morelos? Also, we are interested in going to isla mujeres, does the hotel offer any type of tours? Has any one upgraded to Platinum and is it worth it? Thans

I was with UGALAW and while we did not go to town it is in walking distance. Not sure what is in the town but we chose to just stick to the resort as it is very nice.

You could walk to the village from El Cid but it would take a while and the road out there is very rough and it would not be at all pleasant. Taxi is 60 pesos, collectivo is 4 pesos. The hotel offers all types of tours all over this region. You can also get to Isla Mujeres by bus and ferry or taxi and ferry yourself, then hire a litlle golf cart when you get there to tour around at will, lots of fun.

We just got back from the Marina El Cid. You can walk to PM. It's about a mile or so up the beach. But a taxi is cheap enough and probably worth the convenience. The hotel does not offer tours to Isla Mujeres (we asked!); you can book it online before you go, through Expedia or a similar site. We met a couple from Canada who had done just that. They paid ~$60 per person for a full day experience. They had a blast! Do NOT upgrade to the "platinum." You don't gain anything. That's their pitch to get you to buy into a timeshare (what they call a "vacation club"). Unless that's something you are interested in, be prepared to dodge multiple attempts to get you hooked.

Hi Hooch, I know it looks like you can walk there along the beach but actually north of El Cid it goes, empty beach, big construction site, Caribean Reef Villas, Rancho Sak-Ol, private houses then the large cargo port which stops you in your tracks, you would have to then walk through a property to get to a road and continue by road to the village. It was interesting to read your comments in the other thread about the rocky waterfront, hadn't realised it was like that there, it is also like that in front of Caribbean Reef Villas but El Cid brought in a LOT of sand to build that beach area. The beach Palapas do look good, don't they.
