  • For people who love books, this is paradise. I went there to leave a book and came out with 5! Most of the books are used but in quite good conditions. Beside English, there are also German, Dutch, French and Russian books... The owner is not very talkative.
  • Alma Libre is a wonderful little gem of a bookstore! Reminds me of the independent bookstores back home in Portland, Oregon. Nice selection of new and used books, as well as a beautiful selection of cards, gifts, and jewelry. Primo Mexican vanilla and chocolate products, as well as my favorite Chimay salsa sets. I can never get out of there without leaving with some little treasure! And, Beatriz, the store's serene rescue Meximutt mascot, will likely greet you at checkout. So out down your e-book device and have a look around; you'll be glad you did!
  • I just had a chance to visit your delightful bookstore after reading about it in a magazine. It exceeded my expectations, just charming! Great help and great selection. Our purchases will be welcome mementos of our vacation.
  • After finishing my book that I brought from home on vacation about halfway through, I was desperately trying to find another book to keep me occupied on the beach. I was so happy to find this quaint little bookstore. There were plenty of options and if I had more room in my suitcase to come home I would have bought more than 2. The prices were a little higher than I would have liked for the two used books I picked but still $10 USD and under. The woman behind the counter was wonderful and very helpful. Will definitely come back to visit on my next trip to Puerto Morelos.
  • This is such a cute little bookstore! I found a number of good books in English here. They seem to have a good selection, especially considering the size and location (small town) of the store.
