Have you visited Chichen Itza?  We love going!  And it's in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula!  The trip between Puerto Morelos and Chichen Itza is filled with great towns, villages, and cenotes that make the trip all the better!  It can be a day trip or a nice overnighter, depending on what you want to squeeze in.

Your timing of seeing the ruins during the storied year of 2012 couldn't be more perfectly timed -- particularly if you consider that it is the end of the era in the Mayan Calendar!

If you are thinking about a day trip, then you definitely want to go on the Chichen Itza/Maya Tour!  The tour is ran by a local Puerto Morelos tour guide company that specializes in boutique tours of the area.  The group sizes are limited to a max of 12, your stops are off-the-traditional-beaten-path, and will give you the true flavor of the region!  They are actually tours that will satisfy even the most "non-tour-going folk".  They are truly a MUST-DO! 

Want to go to Chichen Itza?  Contact Us for more info, or you can view this and other area activities on our downloadable Puerto Morelos Activities Guide!  It's a great tool for your trip planning!!

Flea Market Event at Cancunmesse December 2-4th


The Cancunmesse Center is having an event called "NoviSaldos" from December 2-4, 2011.  Various sellers will be hocking used items, in good condition.

Ever in search of folkart, the event has peaked my interest.  I'm thinking it might be worth a "look-see".

Improvements Slated for Puerto Morelos' Beach Access!

Is this a moment of "ask and ye shall receive"?

Yesterday, I made the suggestion that some of the money announced through another program be used to build public bathrooms.

While I am certain I had nothing to do with it, I am super happy to see this article!  It mentions that 3 beach access in Puerto Morelos (and 2 in Cancun) are going to be receiving upgrades -- including parking and...wait for it...PUBLIC BATHROOMS!!!

To celebrate all things Puerto Morelos, I am going to post a photo from our favorite little town.  You all get to guess where the photo was taken.  Some might be easy, some may not...

Here is the first photo to celebrate #PuertoMorelos #MexMonday:

Taste of Playa -- Another Fantastic Year!

We just got back from the 3rd Annual Taste of Playa event, held in Playa del Carmen's Parque Fundadores. 

We have been all three years -- and each year the event gets better and better.

Once again, I have filled myself to the gills and may not be able to consume any additional food for several days.

Great Time.  Great Food.  Great Friends.

PGA Maykoba Golf Classic -- February 22-26, 2012



The Puerto Morelos Event Calendar is starting to fill with activities for the coming high season!  Add this one to your must-do list if you are a golf fan!

The annual PGA Mayakoba Golf Classic, held just 15 minutes south of Puerto Morelos, has been scheduled for February 22-26, 2012. 

The tournament tour stop started in 2006 and was the first international stop on the PGA tour.  It looks like the tournament has been a success for the PGA, as they have just renewed the contract with the Mayakoba's El Camaleon Golf Course for another 6 years -- ensuring the tournament will stay at Mayakoba for another 6 years through 2018.

Many Puerto Morelians volunteer for the tournament and gain free entry for the event.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact them at this link.

Are you thinking of coming down for the tournament?  We have great vacation rentals available, but they are booking fast!  Check them out here.

Mexico makes steps toward going green!

Several recent news articles have highlighted Mexico's recent efforts at going green.

Photo Credit: Hispanically Speaking News
Mexico’s President Felipe Calderón has announced a Sustainable Light Program.  Mexico is focused on reducing the country's overall energy consumption.  To this end, and as a part of the program, Mexico will begin to phase out higher energy light bulbs (incandescent and halogen).  Right now, it is offering a light bulb exchange program through the electric company CFE.  With your ID and most recent paid light bill, they will exchange -- without cost -- 4 incandescent bulbs with 4 compact fluorescent bulbs.  They project to replace over 23 million bulbs by the end of 2011.

The program not only helps its citizens reduce their energy bills, and the environment, it will also save the Mexican Government in the amount that they subsidize non-DAC electricity bills.

In other green news this week is the announcement that Mexico is #2, behind only Brazil, in the number of projects in Latin America funded through Carbon Credits via the Kyoto Treaty.

Wrapping up "green news":  Mexico has also announced a $500 million dollar investment by Baja Sun Energy SRL to produce solar energy.  This is Mexico's FIRST Solar Energy Company!

Way to Go Mexico!  Small Steps.  A Long Way to Go (**Ahem...Curbside Recycling**).  But Poco a Poco!!

Lionfish: From Pest to Plate! Includes Video Footage from Puerto Morelos!


Photo Credit: Wikipedia

The lionfish is a non-native, invasive, and venomous species that is invading our waters.  There are numerous efforts to get their numbers controlled.  The best option is to give them a good market value!  And guess what??  They just happen to be super tasty!!

Please support our reef by requesting lionfish at your favorite Puerto Morelos fish joint.  Hopefully, if it becomes a popular restaurant fare, it will help to reduce their numbers!!

Recently, the efforts of one researcher to improve fishing techniques with local Puerto Morelos fisherman was highlighted in this video and article by Channel 5 News of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"When Wayzata, Minnesota native Dave Johnson married a Mexican woman from the Yucatan Peninsula he couldn't have known he would end up commuting to the Playa Riviera to hunt down and try to eliminate and exotic species that is devastating coral reefs."  Read full article here.
