This was taken in Tulum, Mexico (close to Playa del Carmen). Right behind this temple is the Carribean sea with gorgeous turquoise waters as far as the eye can see. Thank you for commenting on my picture! #4369231

Thank you Robert :) W didn't take a cruise. We flew into Cancun and then stayed at the Moon Palace Resot. We rented a car for two days and took a trip to Tulum and Playa del Carmen and Xel-Ha. It was gorgeous. You should go! We'll definetely be back. #5057179

This picture was taken with the automatic program of my Nikon N80 and a polarizer. I used Picassa to make it b/w as well as fuzzy.

This is "El Castillo", one of the main temples in Tulum. I took this picture around noon, which is a horrible time to visit thanks to the scorching sun and no place to hide. The location is breathtaking, a must see in my mind.
