We have settled in the Mexican beach town Playa del Carmen for the next two months to work on creating our new travel budget app.
Our apartment is in an untouristy part of town just a few minutes walk from the turquoise water and powdery sand of the Caribbean Sea—the perfect place to take a break from our computers. This photo was taken with our new iPhone 5 on our sunset walk along the beach, the boats marking the start of the more crowded section of beach, which we are thankfully far away from.
Although the sun doesn’t set over the water on this coast the light is still gorgeous at this time of day and the storm clouds helped create the soft, watercolour effect.
