Here is a brief year in review of some of the events that took place in the town we all love, Puerto Morelos. Brought to you by InPuertoMorelos.com and Casa de los Viajeros.
2018 started off with this amazing sunrise. A sure sign of good things to come.
As it is every January, the town was in fine form with lots of visitors to our little village, including this guy.
In February, traditionally the town’s busiest month, La Sirena Restaurant and Lounge opened its rooftop bar giving us new views of the lighthouse, the town and of course the star of the show, our ocean.
In March the town began construction on a major renovation of the streets surrounding the square.
The plan was to bury the electrical cables and repave the streets surrounding the square and to the south.
As you can imagine, this was no small undertaking and the construction… well, let’s say it took some time. Check out the car in the photo above, which was parked as the road was torn up around it!
In April, we took a tour of La Colonia with Ana. It was a great way to get to know Puerto Morelos just a little better.
Also in April, a new cafe opened, called Aarom on Ninos Heroes
Meanwhile the construction carried on, making for rather interesting traffic routes through town as many roads were closed.
May brought about the official end of high season, as many of our visitors flew away until next year.
That left many of us locals with a little more free time on our hands to enjoy the summer months, and have some fun.
Maybe a little too much fun! But summer is a great time in Puerto Morelos. It is when the normally busy business people get a chance to reconnect. The restaurants aren’t too busy, so owners quite often have time to stop and share a drink or two. Here we’re sharing a laugh with Ian from La Sirena and Marco, the boy wonder genius behind I Wanna Pizza.
To be continued…. Watch for Part II.
