Cancun: A Must-See Photographic Journey!

Another view of Cancun


Known for its white-sand beaches and ancient Mayan ruins, Cancun offers photography enthusiasts a chance to capture both natural and man-made attractions. One of the best places for observing the balance of both is found at the Bridge Panoramica’s observation tower. Here, local hotels and buildings are the backdrop against natural foliage and inlet waters.

After a warm day of photographing one of Cancun’s beaches, ancient Mayan ruins or other points of interests, capturing Cancun at night is twice as fun. The city comes alive with lights and people, from still images to those with colorful movements. Locations hosting outdoor performances and long-standing neighborhoods offer some of the best vacation photography.

Visiting El Centro

Visit El Centro just before sunrise or sunset to photograph many of the older buildings and still images. Here, each neighborhood is an individual square featuring quaint parks, historic buildings and educational signage. Learn about each location while capturing the soft glow of light from the sun against the buildings, or enjoy the greenery against the clearing sky by photographing one of the many parks after a rain shower.

For evening photographic journeys, explore the hotel district and locate a rooftop observation point. Plan your visit to arrive just before sunset and watch the skyline’s transition as the day gives way to the night. Cancun is unique because shades of red, orange, lavender and deep violet are all visible during this transition time.

When finished, venture out on foot and photograph some other points of interest. Colored fountains and illuminated statuses offer contrasts of neon lights against the black darkness. If looking to be entertained while taking some great shots, watch a performance at an outdoor plaza. Here, native dancers will provide many opportunities to photograph Cancun’s people while learning about their performing arts’ culture.

    My wife and I enjoy being photographed in the beautiful places of Mexico. We can go around carrying a small digital camera and the shots are great. It can be dangerous if we travel a lot without car insurance though. Photographic journeys with good Mexican insurance are just perfect for us!!

  • Send us you photos. We will post them online!

  • Photography has always been my hobby and Cancun is one of the places that I want to visit as it is comprised of many interesting sceneries to capture. I know I will be driving a lot, so I am thinking of buying Mexican insurance in advance.

  • I love beaches and when I go to Mexico next week I will definitely pay a visit to Cancun! My car is already covered under Mexico insurance. Now all I do is wait the day to depart.

    Extreme heat kills bacteria that cause diarrhea. So it’s important to take in well cooked food. Normally, well done foods are good – especially when served steaming hot.

    Truth is, there are many things to see and discover in Cancun. Keep in mind, though, that driving there requires Mexican insurance for your car.
