Another batch of trip reports from the Riviera Maya…

Playa del Carmen on Feb 15th photo Jonathan ClarkMarsha and Adam Smith painted a serene picture of a recent trip to Cabañas Ana y Jose in Tulum to attend a friend’s wedding.

"The hotel was beautiful (although the restaurant was a little expensive)," Marsha wrote, "but otherwise we really enjoyed our stay there… the beach, the friendly staff, towel art… and best of all, our friends who we don’t see often."

A short distance further south, Jenn saw orange at Amansala, the self styled "bikini boot camp and eco chic resort".

"They had fixed almost everything [by January 3rd] Jenn emailed.

Puerto Morelos update

It’s been a while since I said anything about the reconstruction work in Puerto Morelos, so this report from Robert Birce of the Alma Libre Bookstore is timely.

"Hotel Ojo de Agua right on the beach suffered a lot of damage but re-opened in mid-December. They just put water in their pool in the last few days, so are now pretty much 100 percent.

"The beach continues to widen," Robert adds. The photo (right) was taken on January 29th.

"The Ceiba del Mar and Casita del Mar hotels are still closed however."

Riviera palmFlickr friend "Flip" is back in Cuernavaca after her three-day break on the Riviera Maya.

She stayed at the Secrets Excellence Riviera Cancún, which re-opened on November 25th. The luxury all-inclusive hotel is located between Cancún International Airport and Puerto Morelos.

Flip tells me that everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make their stay a memorable one.

The wedding ceremonies have already started, even with some palapas still under repair.
