A peaceful village on the Mayan Riviera, it offers you a glimpse of the real Yucatan. Closer to the Cancun airport than Cancun is, Puerto Morelos makes an excellent base for those seeking someplace quieter than the glitzy nearby hot spots like Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

IN & ABOUT PUERTO MORELOS – July 2010

July is a month of celebration for many foreigners living in Mexico. Canada Day on July 1st and Independence Day on July 4th celebrate the respective dates of Independence from England for Canada and the USA. Canadian expatriates living in Mexico celebrated with a lovely dinner and fun afternoon in downtown Cancun at the Taberna SAYIL Restaurant-Bar.

Family summer vacations are in full swing and many South American, European and Mexican National tourists are enjoying the beautiful white sand beaches of Puerto Morelos and the diving and snorkeling opportunities at the National Coral Reefs located a short distance from our shores. Organized dives are available for these breathtaking and fun activities.
_________________________________________________________

The Ruta de los Cenotes (the road to the Cenotes) is also attracting many visitors. There is a choice of Cenotes (say-NO-tay) or “sink holes” along this road accessible by rental or private car or through an organized guided tour during your stay in Puerto Morelos. What are cenotes? They are deep water filled sinkholes formed by water percolating through the soft limestone above. Since the porous soil held little fresh water, these underground bodies of fresh water were extremely important to the Mayans. A visit to one is a spine chilling experience. Many are more then 50 feet below the surface. In some, entry is through vertical shafts with narrow stair steps carved by the Mayan’s themselves. The caverns are a magical and mystical underground forest of stalagtites, shadowy light, trees and crystal clear blue-green cool water. Share this diving and snorkeling adventure and plunge feet-first into the unknown, an experience you’ll never forget.
_________________________________________________________

The “NUEVO MUNDO” Immersion Language School received its first students who traveled from England and Germany to experience this method of learning Spanish language.
“My Spanish education has been one of the most rewarding parts of my stay in Mexico. Learning one of the most beautiful languages from native Mexicans is something I would recommend to everyone. Marilu’s patience and enthusiasm have meant that six months of classes have always been a positive experience. !Viva Mexico!” said James Catfell, one of the first students at the new school. Tim Scheufen, another satisfied student added “Learning with Marilu is always a pleasure. She turns learning a new language into a highly dynamic, engaging and most of all, fun experience. A highly professional individual….”
At this time, the majority of students are taking individual private lessons with others arriving for one or two week immersion group classes during their stay in Puerto Morelos.
