Puerto Juárez

Puerto Juárez is a town in Benito Juárez municipality, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.[1]

It is in the north-east of the Yucatán Peninsula, on the shore of the Caribbean Sea, 2 km north from the centre of Cancún. A regular ferry service runs to nearby Cancún and to Isla Mujeres.

Puerto Juárez was the primary location of the original population of the area before the founding of the city of Cancún, and was a separate location from 1960 until 1990, when it was abolished as such and incorporated as one of Cancún's districts.
