Catriona Brown, is an accidental resident, who arrived in Puerto Morelos on January 22nd 2002 to spend a couple of days relaxation in the relative obscurity of the then little known seaside village. She had plans to return to her hometown of Sydney within a week and resume her bustling life there with friends and family. Slowly but surely she realised that Puerto Morelos was the town for her and stayed for 8 months with one suitcase and bought land, opened a dive shop and learnt to dive. From there, after dealing with shocked antipodeans, she grew a life that includes construction, charity, playing polo, The Little Mexican Cooking School and making sure Casa Caribe is comfortable and fun for visitors. Catriona has a passionate fondness for the town and is always happy to share with those with an open heart.
