After 15 years we have decided to start a new chapter!
Alma Libre Books and Gifts will change hands on April 1, 2017.
We will continue to live in Puerto Morelos…we will just be living a lifestyle a little more like our customers!
The last 15 years have been amazing. We have met thousands of people from all over the world and have helped many discover our little town. We grew along with Puerto Morelos, and survived challenges like Hurricane Wilma.
As we head into our final Alma Libre month, we would like to sincerely thank you for your ongoing support and friendship over the past 15 years.
We feel the bookstore is an important part of Puerto Morelos, and we know that we are leaving it in very good hands. The new owners are from Canada and own a bookstore! They love Puerto Morelos and are making it their home.

The store after Wilma in 2005. The store came through pretty well, we were amazed to see the sign made it through just fine, and not a single pane of glass was broken. The store did have a fair amount of water damage inside, we lost about 1000 books.
