Hola! Que Tal?

Hola, Que Tal?
I have a question about the Playa Palm webcam..(Yes it sounds stupid ) But on the images of Playa del Carmen you see a very blue see..At the webcam it is total different! I guess it's because of the quality of the cam (I hope so).
Next year february we will come to Playa del Carmen . Does anybody here have nice, self made, pictures? Yes I know, the pictures on the playa.info site are ok to
Thanks! Hasta Luego
from Holland

Welcome!

The real-life colours are truly amazing IMO.
Even with a lousy camera ages ago I got nice colours.

Welcome! I just think it's the angle of the web cam. If you search through lots of trip reports you will see countless pics of the beautiful turquoise sea.

Too many variables to get an accurate picture of the colour of the water. Bright or cloudy day, direction of the sun, degree of sobriety of the photographer, relative calmness of the water, height of the waves, quality of the camera/film etc... You can be reasonably sure it will be some shade of blue, and I personally guarantee it will be wet and salty.

Seems to me you have your priorities in order.

So what's the background? Just curious.

Welcome aboard CarOlina! Maybe we'll see in February, we'll be there until the 16th! The water can be breathtaking.
