On the first day of arrival to Grand Palladium Resort we awoke early to catch the sunrise from the southern end of the resort’s beach.  Our lodgings were right around the corner.  For October hurricane season, the weather was  absolutely gorgeous.  Click here for a larger version of the panorama.

One of the most picturesque beaches of the Riviera Maya in Mexico is that of Tulum the ancient walled city of the Mayans once seen by Cortez.  With the azure Caribbean Sea glistening above the pristine white coral sands this vista was one of the most gorgeous views of our recent vacation.  Click here for a larger version of the panorama.

Snorkeling at Xelha, Mexico

Greetings from the Riviera Maya, Mexico where we just spent a whole day in the sunny Caribbean Sea snorkeling as a family.  While the biodegradable sunscreen helped keep the Parrot fish alive, it made most of us look like lobsters by the end of the day.  But it was a fun 6 hours of snorkeling and seeing a whole bunch of fish at Xelha where we explored a sea cave, numerous cenotes, followed a whole bunch of fish around (photos some other day), and even swam with manta rays.  Here’s the commercial photos that we got scalped, but worth sharing!
