Are you worried that you will run out of books for the beach? Although you may have a Kindle, you might want to take a break from reading on a screen for a while. Check out the Book Exchange shelves in the lobby at your resort and the Activities Center. If you find something that interests you can take it in exchange for one of the books you have finished.

The Royal Market stocks a small selection of bestsellers and if you are going Downtown you might want to browse the shelves at Sanborns or Gandhi Bookstore in Malecon Las Americas for books in English.

Also in Downtown Cancun, Needful Things is a second-hand bookstore on Coba Ave. with a larger selection of books in English.

If you are heading to Puerto Morelos, call in at Alma Libre Bookstore on the main square. It stocks an extensive selection of second-hand and new books ranging from thrillers and sci-fi to historical romance and the classics. You’ll also find travel guides and books on Mexican art, history, nature and traditions, maps, crafts, organic coffee, honey and more. Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily during the winter season. Closed during the summer.
