I have looked at your trip report a dozen times! I really enjoyed it! It's very personal, informative and the pictures are fabulous! My husband and I are heading to the RPRM in a few weeks and I found your pictures and information to be exactly what we needed to get a better feel for the place before we go. Thank you for your time and efforts...and, congratulations to you both!

Great review

Wonderful review, we are going there in less than two weeks as long as the hurricane isn't too harsh. What camera did you use for your photos?
Loved it.

Thanks again

Majority of the pics were taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ45.

It is a fairly big camera to carry about so some of the photos were taken with our smaller cheaper Sony camera.

I bought the Lumix FZ45 specifically for our trip to Mexico.
Looking through the reports on this site, I could see how amazing the colours were in and around Playa Del Carmen and I wanted to get a decent camera to capture this.

I don't know anything about photography so I didn't want to spend a fortune on an SLR and not use any of the features, so I opted for a bridge camera which is not as good as an SLR but is capable of capturing some really good quality shots.

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your trip with us! You have changed my mind on where we will stay in 2012, adios Royal....unless Shammy tells me I'm making a mistake! (or unless the dif between our price at the Royal, we are "members," and the Riu is crazy!!). Belated congrats on your wedding. I felt sad for you having to return home u til I saw that precious furry face, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel? Regardless, how darling!
