Thanks very much Rebecca and Heather for viewing my report and the nice comments on the photos!

If my photos and report have piqued anyone's interest in the area, then it has accomplished something.

Gorgeous beach shots! What kind of camera takes those pics that look like the beach/sky is in motion. Thanks for sharing

Thank you Tracielynn! The camera is just a standard DSLR, but the photos you are probably describing are a result of the lens I was using. They were taken with an ultra wide lens.

Wow, I just caught up from the first day! These photos are beautiful, I envy your eye (and your camera). Sounds like it was everything you wanted it to be...but I NEVER would have gone into a little unknown town like that. I'm SUCH a chicken...

Great trip report!! Loved your pictures and comments but that day trip to the cartel area was a bit too scary for me. Glad it was uneventful!

Telling you that you take good photos is a bit like gilding the lily, so it took me a while to come up with the right words, but I particularly like the depth and richness of the colors, especially these:
