Hello Puerto Morelos!

Alma Libre Bookstore

Welcome to Alma Libre Bookstore. We are located in downtown Puerto Morelos, between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen on the Riviera Maya, Mexico. Offering an eclectic collection of new books and used books, gifts, handicrafts, maps, guides, and assorted treasures, we pride ourselves on being more than just an amazing independent bookstore.

Alma Libre Bookstore has been a book lover’s bastion for more than two decades.  Not only are we the curators of the largest selection of new and used english language  books on the Riviera Maya, we also strive to provide excellent information, witty banter, awesome conversation, and an ex-pat local perspective.

We believe bookstores should provide an experience beyond the simple joy of words.  Alma Libre is a perfect blend of worldly literature, regional handicrafts, and Mexican flare, fully steeped in a unique Puerto Morelian vibe.

Alma Libre is your information launch pad for Puerto Morelos and the Riviera Maya, Mexico.  We live here because we love this place.  Stocked with new and used books on local history, guide books, maps, dictionaries and phrase books, identification charts, Mayan lore, folktales, Mexican fiction, and stuff about corn, Alma Libre Bookstore offers beach reads and more.

Sharing semi-opinionated information with interested wanderers is part of what we love about bookstore living.  We have travelled extensively throughout the Mayan Riviera and Yucatan, love our Puerto Morelos home, and are happy to share what we think and know about this fantabulous place.

Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, is more than just Alma Libre Bookstore.  Located between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, this small fishing village is a true hidden gem.  Boasting beautiful, uncrowded beaches, an amazing collection of restaurants and small shops, and some of the nicest people you will ever meet, Puerto Morelos beckons.

Alma Libre Bookstore, sitting on the downtown square across from the signature leaning lighthouse and the turquoise Caribbean, looks to make your Puerto Morelos adventure as fantastic as possible.  Grab a used book and find some serious beachy chill time,  or perhaps some Mayan history is what you need before settling into one of our neighbouring coffee shops, bars or restaurants. Pick up a reef guide before your snorkel tour takes you out into the Caribbean and entirely blows your mind, or load up on vanilla, coffee, salsa, and handicrafts, all sourced from this magical region.  We are sure you will fall hard for this piece of paradise and we at Alma Libre Bookstore are thrilled to share it with you.
