We flew into Cancun but didn't stay to look round, immediately heading south past the all inclusive resort hotels to make our first stop at Puerto Morelos, a fishing village with a few small hotels and apartment blocks attracting visitors who like the quiet life. We are staying at the Amar Inn, family run by Luis and Miguel with rooms and cabanas …
... accessible only with a snorkel. However, there are not many of them, you have to take a boat tour to get to the "real" coral reef. But I saw some nice fish and some impressive corals. The biggest fish I saw was a barracuda, which was at least 1-2 meters long! :-)
A few days later we were able to take a snorkeling tour to get to the "real" coral reef. The whole coral reef is a National Park now, ...
... with slutty dancers doing the gangnam style...yes a normal MTV party so to speak!;) The weirdest thing was the open bar. You could order whatever you wanted all night long and all for free. Cocktails, tequila, mixers..anything. I don't see how they make money! But then again most people pay an entrance fee!;) The last two days it's been raining like crazy! First day I was still lying on the beach telling myself it would stop soon enough so I was the ...

The Cinema is just not what it used to be like, 2 terrible films seen in a row- Spring Break (don't ask why,) and The Last Exorcism 2. Absolutely dreadful the both of them. That was saved though after seeing Fast & Furious 6, which the Mexicans loved, and continuously clapped and cheered throughout the film, then applauded the screen at the end... hahaha.

Day 2: Usually it takes 3 and a half days to complete your course, but we were able to finish it in 2 :D Everything came so naturally and we were able to do all of the skills which we had learnt in the pool. Such as cleaning your mask, giving your buddy the alternate air supply etc. It is so cool to be able to adjust ...

Amar Inn is family run by brothers Luis and Miguel with rooms and cabanas set in a small but beautifully kept garden, where you may catch a glimpse of an iguana. We climbed a rickety looking wooden spiral staircase to the green room, a large and airy room with a sea view from one window. We found the bed comfortable and the hot water plentiful. There was AC and a fan but we didn't need either, the breeze from the sea was sufficient, and we had clean towels daily, fashioned into swans and fans.
We've had wonderful breakfasts here including a different local dish each day. The first morning we saw people with what looked like stuffed pancakes in chocolate sauce, so were surprised to find they were tacos filled with chicken or cheese with the famous Mexican mole sauce containing bitter chocolate - delicious and completely savoury. Other days we had a crispy tortilla topped with bean paste, ham and spicy fried potatoes, squash and corn in tomato sauce with black beans and tortilla crisps with green chile.
We had a great stay, and would return, but it has a friendly rustic feel is not for those who are expecting luxury.
