Puerto Juárez is a district in the 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 (1.25 mi) north from the center of Cancún. 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.
