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:

Abandoned Pier Playa del Carmen

Abandoned Pier Playa Del Carmen. This is the abandoned fishing pier in Playa del Carmen Mexico. It is a sight to see, and one of the coolest broken abandoned fishing piers I have ever stepped foot on.

You can actually swim to it and climb right up. You have to be super careful as there are a ton of rusty nails sticking up ready to send you to the hospital. So please be careful if you decide to be adventurous.

During sunset, the locals come here with a six-pack of beer and a joint to enjoy a nice sunset. I, however, like to show up with my camera.

On this day however I was shooting the sunrise and I decided to shoot it from shore, as the clouds behind it looked insane.

I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets, download them, and give them a try.

Tours I recommend in Playa del Carmen:

Las Coloradas Mexico

Las Coloradas Mexico/ What you see here are huge salt evaporation ponds for sea salt extraction. Some of them show peculiar colors due to microorganisms in the water, like the pink lagoon. Note that in order for you to catch the ultra pink color, the water needs to be in direct sunlight, the best time to catch this really cool phenomenon is at noon on a clear day.

I shot this with my drone, and of course, it is best if you have a model to make the photo more interesting or simply add the human element. Who is the model I brought? Her name is Mercedes, without this shot wouldn’t be as cool, however, you don’t have to bring a model for this place to be epic. If I would have been alone, I would have asked someone there or simply used myself to give the place some perspective.

I edited this shot with my aerial presets. They are tastefully re-mastered.

Las Coloradas Mexico

Las Coloradas Mexico, where are they and why are they pink. the pink lagoon in mexico,

If you want to visit these places, I highly recommend a guided tour. To go on your own is kind of an adventure and hard to find the cool spots.
