Life in Puerto Morelos under lockdown

The strict stay at home order continues for Puerto Morelos and the Mexican Caribbean. All non-essential activities in the public and private sector are still suspended.
Schools and universities remain closed and students are continuing with their lessons in online classrooms.
People who can work at home are doing so and those who have to travel to their workplace must take every precaution. The use of face masks is mandatory in public and there are restrictions on movement and strict social distancing and sanitation measures for supermarkets, banks and other essential offices that are open.
The State Government has been distributing food help to the thousands of families throughout the Mexican Caribbean affected by the economic crisis that COVID-19 has inflicted on the area.

Puerto Morelos community spirit
Those of us from overseas who have lived in Mexico for many years know that Mexicans come together in a crisis. We have seen it time and time again, after hurricanes and earthquakes. We see small acts of kindness everywhere and Puerto Morelos is no exception.
One group of citizens is collecting money to buy digital thermometers and masks for local clinics while another set up a food bank to distribute help to 700 low-income families. Some are delivering supplies to the elderly; chefs are pitching in to bake bread or pizzas and others are caring for stray dogs and cats. Food, materials, donations, time, transport, conservation and even music or art, whatever its scope or size, every community initiative helps someone in need.

First turtles of the season spotted on Puerto Morelos beaches

May marks the beginning of the sea turtle nesting season in the Mexican Caribbean and the Puerto Morelos Ecology department has reported the first sightings of nesting turtles on area beaches.
The first turtles of the season came ashore on Punta Brava on April 30 and we hope that thousands more will follow them during the season.
Grand Residences is proud to participate in the statewide sea turtle conservation campaign and during the summer nights our security guards will be patrolling the beach on the lookout for female turtles.
