This is the beautiful sunrise we experienced while staying in Caracol, just north of Playa del Carmen. The clouds were spectacular every morning and this morning was particularly gorgeous! I didn't come close to capturing the true beauty that morning!
For more photos or to share our RTW journey with us, feel free to visit www.sixheartsonejourney.com. Ahhh, my beloved Playa del Carmen. When I finally decided to get serious with photography and purchased a decent camera, this was the 1st photo I ever took. Beautiful sunrise on Coco Beach. Grand Riviera Princess Hotel..Beautiful😍👏 Cenote Burrodromo:
impressive cave with stalactites and bats cover. This is one of the most beautiful spas I have had then luxury of spending my day at. This waterfall reminded me of the cenotes in the area.
$30 entrance or indulge yourself in a massage and your stay is covered to enjoy the exotic water treatments. A bucket list contender for certain. Cenote#maravillas de México Riviera Maya😍👌 Little boats, Playa del Carmen Mexico A beautiful resort on the Mayan Riviera. This is a great all-inclusive resort that provides first-class services while preserving the natural environment of the Riviera Maya. Great place for sunrise or sunset with or without bad weather, mind the guards at the docks, they can be a bit annoying. Looks like a great place for an afternoon siesta
#BestOf5 Shady spot on a beautiful sunny beach. Deck mayakoba La Choza del Winik is a great, inexpensive place to pick up food on the corner of Av 10 and 46 (CTM). This carne asada chimichanga was excellent, and I can highly recommend the fish tacos too. The owners speak English, but they're happy to help if you want to practice your Spanish. Beautiful tropical sunrise in Playa Del Carmen.
#BeachBound #EndlessSummer #playacar great party, great sunset, amazing beaches! Wedding spot? This is one of our favorite resorts in the Riviera Maya. South of Cancun and just north of Playa del Carmen, it is set in a gated community with a few other really nice resorts.
While we did miss our ocean view rooms at the previous resort (it's very expensive to get a villa with ocean views here!), we thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food. From the moment we arrived, we were treated kindly and professionally.
The pools were beautiful, as was the lagoon (seen in the photo). The only downside was that the beach was a bit too narrow, and the swimming area directly in front of the resort not as smooth and rock-free. But otherwise, our experience here was excellent.

This is where the locals eat! #hogfish #mexico #locals #authentic #fish #delicious #playadelcarmen Bliss My spot for the day. The adults only section is on the left side of the resort when facing the ocean. A nice quiet retreat. Sunrise’s never fail to impress, it’s always worth the effort to get up early, choose your composition and not have to worry about rushing round with the camera settings. Gives you time to take in the beautiful surroundings while still capturing a stunning image
#bvsquad #stunninglocations #seascape Hotel Riviera Princess A lovely hotel. While immense in size it's never a bore meandering the pathways lined with sculptures and wildlife My favourite spot in the suite. #travelbug #cancún #playadelcarmen #quintanaroo #mexico #northamerica #resort #rosewoodmayakobá #suite A great day for Paddle Boarding in Playa Del Carmen Mayan Riviera Sunset in the beach Riviera Maya, Mexico One of the best hotels I've stayed. Banyan Tree Mayacoba I love my home in Hawaii but living in the Midwest, you have to love the Caribbean all-inclusive resorts -- they are reasonably priced and a much shorter trip than going across part of the US and the Pacific Ocean. I could do without all the in-your-face tourist agents but once you know you can bypass them with a
