Alma Libre Bookstore

Map
Avenida Tulum, on the plaza's south side, Puerto Morelos, , Mexico

Snap up beach reads, bestsellers, classics, tomes on Maya culture, and local guidebooks and maps—the largest selection of (mostly used) English-language books in the Yucatán—at this inviting warren of overflowing wooden bookshelves reminiscent of a college-campus hangout. The affable Canadian owners, Robert and Joanne Birce, also produce an entertaining local newsletter. In summer, the shop is closed.

Insider Tip: The bookstore functions as an unofficial tourist information center and vacation rental agency, and the Birces are ready to help with miscellaneous tasks like copying digital photos onto a CD to free up camera space.
