Postcard from Peurto Morelos, Mexico

In my first week in Mexico I hung out in the fishing village of Puerto Morelos, which has kept its charm as a village, in spite of being halfway between the resort towns of Cancun and Playa Del Carmen.

A fixture of the town, near the main pier and the central plaza, is a lighthouse. An older version — damaged beyond repair by a hurricane — still rests on the beach, listing to the north. The replacement is the same shape as the old one and both are quite photogenic.
