Stormy days and hot nights the last few weeks and this Sunday clear blue skies and parties on the beach as usual! Our big news is that we are moving The Little Mexican Cooking School to the new premises at Casa Caribe (called Hotelito Marviya for the last 7 years) which is on Rojo Gomez right across from the beach in the middle of town. It gives us a bigger kitchen and entertaining space so that we can offer more hands on, small events, chef courses and in the future the Cooking School Cafe. Casa Caribe will reopen in mid October (website under construction by the fabulous Ellen Fields of Yucatan Living www.casacaribepuertomorelos.com) with low opening rates. There will be 5 large airy rooms available to rent, all renovated, new appliances, crisp clean sheets, ocean views, hammocks, private terraces and breakfast provided by the Cooking School - we are all very excited. Also on the look out for outdoor furniture and rustic decorations. If you are in town in late October keep an ear open for the opening Antojitos and Botanas party. Coco has been very successful with

her yoga retreats on Saturday - you spend a whole day in yoga and meditation and eat the most delicious raw food, I highly recommend the day at only 400 pesos each Corinne: email@example.com. Coco is seen here on the beach today celebrating her birthday with her son Jules (now working at Cafe Amancia) and Katie Walsh (now working weekends at the Beach Bar) who are our 2 latest Puerto Morelians. Yay! We are an Alcaldia but what does it mean? The word originates in Spain and does mean where the Mayor does business but in contemporary Mexico it grants the local mayor slightly more autonomy for decisions than they would normally have. For Puerto Morelos it means that there is the strong possibility we will be our own municipality in 3 years time. There was an Extraordinary sitting of the Constitutional Committee of Benito Juarez in the Parque de Puerto Morelos to ratify the formation of the Alcaldia.
