Puerto Aventuras vs Puerto Morelos

Would appreciate any feedback on the above for one week end of May 2014. Any resort suggestions in PM? What is the difference between the two regarding restaurants,bars etc. Which one is quieter? We are looking for smaller/quieter for relaxing, good food and some shopping.

Any help to assist with our decision making would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

They are completely different towns. PA has lots of condo buildings and houses and marinas.it is a built town so pretty modern. Lots of visitors during the day around the centre , quieter at night,lovely little museum and if you want to see dolphns in captivity they are right there along with manatees. PM is a real Mexican town set around a town square on a lovely beach, about 40!restaurants, you can rent condos or houses. Both towns have big hotels, lots of info onTA about them all.

Catin describes it well. PM is an older , traditional Mexican town while Adventuras is a much more recent development, created for tourism. Both are fine--just depends on your personal likes.
