Hilton Playa del Carmen, the last photo

Hilton Playa del Carmen. This is the last photo I shot before leaving playa del carmen. As you know I moved to Playa del Carmen Mexico at the beginning of the year. In January to be exact. I was there for 7 months exactly. Why did I move there? Well, that’s a discussion I will go deep into in a different blog post, but for now, enjoy this cool shot.

I actually flew my drone from my rooftop, and if you look close enough you can see the rooftop I’m flying from. I really like how the colors came out. I shot this at dusk right after the sunset. This is the Hilton in Playa del Carmen Mexico, I actually lived next door. I always got a kick out of talking to tourists telling them how I came to visit and never left.

I edited this shot with my aerial presets.

Best Place to Photograph the Sunset in Playa del Carmen

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

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.

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.
