Get your toes out of the sand and onto a mat… for a few minutes

While you are in Puerto Morelos be sure to drop by Alma’s Pilates class at the Casa de Cultura. The classes are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 7:00am for an hour and a half. They are a great deal at 50 pesos a class on a drop in basis or 350 pesos for the entire month. A fantastic and fun way to stay in shape so you can enjoy more tacos and beer while you are in Puerto Morelos.

Heading into our last week of ownership of the Alma Libre Bookstore, we’re getting a little sentimental, so here is a look at some photos from 2006. This was the town’s comeback year after the devastating hurricane the year before.

A familiar view of Puerto Morelos. The taller lighthouse was damaged significantly in the hurricane and needed extensive repairs. It was replaced completely last year with a new one. The old leaning lighthouse shrugged Wilma off without any problem. We were worried it might straighten up!

The beach at Ceiba del Mar hotel (Now Desire). You can see it was quite a bit wider then. Hurricane Wilma did a lot of damage, but “gifted” us with more beach.

Alma Libre Bookstore in 2006. Our neighbour was Eric (Le Marlin Bleu) who retired from shrimp tacos to run Ecab Explorer, an excellent local tour company.

Shout out to our friends at “The Godfather” jewelry. They recently did a repair on a ring for us that was better than the original work.

They have a small store, but a large selection of jewelry. We’ve sent lots of people there and they have all come back happy. They are located just north of the square on Rojo Gomez, across from Tacos dot com or Posada El Moro Hotel. Such nice folks!  They will make you an offer you can’t refuse!
