Puerto Morelos

Horrendous currents made us slow to make it to Puerto Aventuras so we pulled in for the night. Here you are not allowed to snorkel from your own boat and the locals say you cannot anchor here, though our book says you can and we had nowhere else to go. Murray went to the Port Captains office. They said they were shut and didn't speak English, but one old boy came over and when told we had anchored for one night just shrugged and indicated he didn't know why we were telling them. It is not friendly here so we are glad it is for just one night, we felt really uncomfortable.

The old lighthouse has seen better days.mexico
