Where is the best place to photograph the sunset in Playa del Carmen Mexico? This is a question I often get since I have been living here for a little while.
Playa del Carme is a great place to visit if you are a photographer, however, it can be a daunting place to find locations. Do not worry I have your back.
The best photography spot in Playa del Carmen to shoot the sunset can be found right on the beach, at the old ferry station going to Cozumel. Remember it’s the old ferry station, not the current one being in use. You can find the old pier south of the current pier.
The gear I use for all my photos: Nikon D850 with a Nikon 14-24mm a Nikon 24-85mm a Nikon 70-200. A MeFOTO tripod is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.
However, I shot these photos with my iPhone. I have been doing a lot of iPhone photography lately and I am having a blast with it. It’s not like a real camera but the photos look really good.
Best Place to Photograph the Sunset in Playa del Carmen
To get there simply google Panama Jack resort. Once you get to Panama Jack simply follows the road all the way to the beach and that same road turns into the old pier. Here you can go crazy and get some really epic shots of the sunset.
Make sure you walk around the beach to get the best possible shots. There is plenty to shoot around this area.
This is the best to shoot the sunset in Playa del Carmen Mexico. Make sure you bring a tripod and stick around for the blue hour. This place is truly beautiful. Drop me a message below if you have any questions. I’d love to hear from you.
