2/3/2024: We finished our early morning tour to the Cayo, and it turns out, there is not a whole lot to do in Moron. Eventually, we hired a guy in an 1954 Chevy to get a ride out of town to a forested area. It was fairly scenic, but we didn't really have a lot of information and ended up walking along the road. In the night, we checked out a club where there were a couple of singers, and there was a mariachi band playing in the park next to the casa particular.
