The town of Puerto Morelos is a small beach community about 25 miles south of Cancun, Mexico. We arrived here after flying non-stop from Boston International Airport in Massachusetts, USA, to Cancun International Airport in Quintana Roo, Mexico, thence via ground transportation.
This stretch of beautiful Caribbean coast on the Yucatan peninsula is called the Mayan Riviera and offers a mix of busy party towns, small quiet villages, and luxurious resorts and developments. During the Northern Hemisphere's winter, many North Americans seek escape from the wintry weather and cold by visiting this part of Mexico. Normal daily temperature range is about 60-84 degrees Fahrenheit.
I'll be spending the next month in this small community south of Cancun. My intent will be to publish a blog post every couple days or so depending on whether internet connections are reliably available (and the heat, humidity, and sun don't make me too lazy).
