Get to know the new Puerto Morelos official logo presented by the municipal authorities in April.

Designed by David Espinoza Álvarez, the winning logo was selected by a jury after a competition to choose the municipality’s new image. It is a celebration of Puerto Morelos’ history and its natural treasures, both in the water and on dry land.

The shield features the iconic leaning lighthouse, a survivor of Hurrican Beulah in 1967, and a chicozapote tree with its zigzag cuts as a symbol of chicle gum harvesting, once an important economic activity in the villages of Leona Vicario and Central Vallarta. Other elements are the coral reef, the branches of a mangrove tree and water to symbolize cenotes and the sea.
