I just realized that I never wrote the Part 2 of our trip to the Riviera Maya! (See Part 1 here)
My parents and J and I decided to venture off the resort in search of some sightseeing and shopping. We ended up going to Playa Del Carmen which was about a 45 minute drive from the resort. The weirdest thing about the drive was all the speed bumps on the freeway. Yes, the freeway! We'd be zooming along and then all of the sudden, slooooow and then bump! and then back to zooming. Really weird.
Anyway, Playa Del Carmen was fun and had a lot of stuff to see. My family and I are shoppers at heart so we loved all the fun things that the stores were selling. I love how brightly colored everything was.
Even the tequila bottles got some fun hats to wear!
It was another gorgeous blue sky day, I could take pictures of clouds and blue skies all day long.
When we got back to the resort my sister had planned a catamaran trip for everyone that was there at the wedding. I didn't fare so well as I get extreme motion sickness so I was lying down for the majority of the time. Because of this I took about 4 pictures.
Lots of the guests jumped in for some snorkeling. I was just so glad that the boat stopped moving for a little bit.
See, I told you I could take pictures of clouds all day long. Love this cloud formation. I've been fascinated with clouds since I was a child. I just love how they look so pretty and fluffy!
The sunset on the drive home. It was too lovely not to miss even though we were stuck in the most uncomfortable van ever! Oh and yes my motion sickness applies to car rides as well. :(
So despite the motion sickness, I had a blast. We loved the resort we stayed at and am so glad that we got to see a bit of Riviera Maya. On another note, we are going back next year as we have just been booked to shoot a wedding there next July! Kymberly and Marc we are so excited and can't wait for your wedding! :)
All these were shot with a Canon 5d Mark II, 50mm f/1.2L lens. Straight out of the camera no post processing.
