Best things to do in Playa del Carmen Mexico

Best things to do in Playa del Carmen Mexico. I wondered that before I moved down here. However, I had a bit of an idea. It is not rocket science to figure that out. I mean just look at the ocean and wait for the sun to come up.

Unquestionably one of the best places to catch the sunrise. I mean it is the Riviera Maya. Sitting on the beach taking in all this beauty I can’t help but think about the Mayans. This was their television set, their backyard. How incredible to be able to wake up to this every morning. It is absolutely stunning.

So, next time you head down, just ask yourself: What is the best thing to do in Playa del Carmen? The answer is simple. Walk down to the beach and catch the sunrise. You will be glad you did.

Mexico during the pandemic

Mexico during the pandemic.  I arrived in Mexico on January 7th. I decided to go because things were just not good in the States. We had Trump and “stay home” on every form of media imaginable, from print to social media and everything in between.

I got so fed up with it, that I decide to just leave. I had no plan, no arrangements, and really I had no idea what I was about to do, I just wanted to leave.

When I arrived in Mexico, I realized I had made the right choice. I quickly got an oceanfront apartment, and every morning I would wake up to this. Talk about the right move!

Tours I recommend in Playa del Carmen:

Isla Mujeres Mexico

Isla Mujeres Mexico. Have you ever been? Isla Mujeres is probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to in Mexico. It probably has to do with the fact that I was with great company and on a yacht.

No, but seriously it really is. It is a quiet island only reachable by ferry (or in my case by yacht) or any kind of floating device. Shoot you can even swim if you really want to

Isla Mujeres is quiet and the water is so stunning, completely seethrough, warm, clean, and just spectacular. When you look down, you can see fish swimming all around you, like you are in the movie Finding Nemo. It’s perfect. If I die and there is a heaven, this is it.

Mexican Skies

Mexican Skies. This was across the street from where I used to live in Mexico. It truly was incredible being able to spend time in this beautiful place I call home.

This particular morning there was a storm in the middle of the ocean, you can see the heavy thick clouds to the right, that’s a massive storm. As the storm got closer to me, the sun kept fading away. When I shot this photo, the sun was peaking out of the heavy rain like an alligator peeking out of the water ready to catch its prey. This is a Mexican Sky.

Tours I recommend in Playa del Carmen:

Sunny Isles Pier Sunrise

Sunny Isles Pier Sunrise. One of the most beautiful piers in South Florida is the Sunny Isles Pier, especially during sunrise. I really love coming here. There is plenty of parking and at sunrise, there is barely anyone ever here. This spot is one of my favorites and one of Floridas best kept secretes for epic photography spots.  I highly recommend coming here. Even if you are not a photographer, this is a great place to enjoy the sunrise. If you come during the day, there is a bar and a restaurant on the pier where you can enjoy our favorite cocktails.

If you do come to shoot it, make sure you bring a tripod to get the water waves to slow down as they are crashing down. Look how cool they look when I slow down the shutter speed a bit…

Luminar Sky Packs discount

Luminar Sky Packs discount. Let’s face it, Skylum Luminar changed photography forever, and for good reason. They have created the best software to do sky replacement in just a few clicks. And that my friends, is awesome.

Even though I am an ambassador for Luminar, that is not the reason I am saying that. I truly love the software and I think most serious photographers also love it.

When Luminar marketplace came around I was thrilled to be part of it, and not only that but also to be able to purchase other sky collections from other amazing photographers. Let’s face it, the more tools we have at our reach, the more creative we can get with our creative vision, and that is a fact.

When this software first came out, ( and I was one of the first people to use it before it went to market ) I knew it would change the photography game forever. I mean replace the sky with a couple of clicks?? That’s just amazing. I quickly realized I had a massive collection of skies, and I wanted the world to have them. Why not, the more beautiful images out in the world the better. And to know that I am helping your creative juices flow, well that’s just a big bonus.

So I decided to put all my sky collections, in one place and sell them for a great price. Remember that all my skies have been remastered, meaning edited, and made to perfection so you can create stunning images.
