Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Tagged: ,

According to this article from Traveler’s Digest, the Dominican Republic (DR) welcomed the most tourists to its shores for island nations in the Caribbean.

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – A Tulum Sunrise (Or Sunset?)

Tagged: , ,

The photographer who shared this image online of Tulum, Mexico tagged it as one of a sunset. For those of you who might not know, Tulum sits on an east facing beach, making sunset pics over the ocean geographically impossible. While there are inland lagoons just south of the archaeological ruins, the absence of beaches and their status as eco-friendly destinations would lead one to believe that use of motorized boats might not just be...
