We have just spent the month of February in Puerto Morelos and one cannot describe the feeling of being there. It's a case of having to experience it as how can you describe friendliness, safe and stress free. We stayed at Ocean Homes, a fabulous condo spot, and would go out for one meal a day every second day or so. Since we were there for the month we dined at a few of the restaurants in the village. All were very good however we always seemed to end up back at Habanero's. Habanero's is a place where you are not just another customer. You become one of them. You meet so many great people, even our own Cdn and Minnesota neighbours!! The entertainment from Paco to the other groups during the week make it so much fun, dancing and singing along is all part of having a good time. We had almost everything on the menu and it was all soooooooo good. The Owner, Louis and the rest of the staff definitely care about their customers and that is why the regulars are there. With people from all walks of life as patrons nobody is any better than anybody else and we felt we could just be ourselves and enjoy life as it is meant to be. We thank you for making us part of your lives and we look forward to seeing everyone next year. Habanero's is very deserved of #1!!!!

Good food, but a little expensive and the black/blue lighting really turned us off.

We visited the first time and then just HAD to go back several more times for the margaritas. We also ate there a couple times and the food was also very good too!!

for the non-native locals. Music tends to be classic rock, what you can hear any place in North America. Like I said, it's a very nice place but it just lacks in local culture.

The food was great and the portions were large. They had a great entertainer (Paco) one of the nights we were there. If you are in a hurry, this might not be the place for you. Everything is definitely in a slower mode here than in the US.
