Chui - the Caretaker of Playa Mora

Chui is the guy that puts up signs warning people to not walk on the coral which is very tempting as is is often above water and close to the beach. He may even enlist the help of local campers to help patrol. While you are avoiding the reef - avoid the small sting rays in the sand. Shuffle your feet and watch where you are going.
