Travel Blogs from Puerto Morelos
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 …
We flew in yesterday. We didn't sit together on the flight to Denver. I asked in Denver if they could find us seats together and the nice United lady gave me a free upgrade to their premium, 5-extra-inches seats so we could sit together. An auspicious beginning. We checked in to our hotel about 4 and changed out of our jeans and walked to the main …
... round the corner is Lurky the taxi driver, waiting to take people to the seaside. £1.50 ride, jobs a good un. Drops us outside Casa Caribe where Catriona was waiting to show us her lovely hacienda style house. Think its gonna be a struggle here for a few days. If Dee gets me out of the Hammock on the balcony with the sea view, im in danger of enjoying something else.
After a few hours on the beach, we've made the school boy error of not ...
... old but we are staying on the main strip behind town and on the water. It's a really nice long road with palm trees on either side and by the water are all the hotels and the other side of the road the restaurants and apartments to rent. It is a really relaxed almost hippie type area and all the hotels are not high rise but all little huts and villas. They are all mostly spa places its great. I had a nice massage on the beach and we had dinner by the water. After ...

this trip. A week is short but I think I am ready to go home……..I miss
work……….. ;-) !!
Be it ever so ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
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.
