Havent been to the bookstore. Yet. But stumbled onto their website while doing research on Puerto Morelos and found it very informative and helpful. Love their quirky style and playful outlook on issues and life

A sweet little used bookstore in town. Many books to choose from in both English and Spanish. Take a walk through and browse the shelves, then walk to the corner cafe and have a cappucino!

If visiting Puerto Morelos, stop into the Alma Libre. I popped in a couple of times and got some great tips on the town while i was there.

We stumbled across the Alma Libre website when we were searching for a vacation on the Rivera Maya in 2011. As I surfed around the web links on the site we became more convinced that we needed to visit Puerto Morelos. My family and I stayed at the Now Jade just down the road and popped into town to visit the bookstore and Puerto Morelos several times.

Through the book store we found a great dive shop (Dive In Puerto Morelos) and a great guide to Chichen Itza.

Rob and Joanne do an amazing job of selling Puerto Morelos. We have been back to the Now Jade recently and another trip inot Puerto Morelos has us thinking about next time renting something in town and enjoying the locals.
