The turquoise water of Cancun, Mexico

Cancun has the most turquoise water I’ve ever seen. A friend told me about this before, but it’s not the same as seeing it with your own eyes… Indeed, when my husband and I had the chance to visit this place for the first time, I just couldn’t believe it… Click on the photos to see them in larger versions:

Turquise water on Cancun Beaches

The tones of blue, turquoise, teal and aqua vary with the depth of the water and the light, and mix with each-other in a beautiful harmony.

Early in the morning everything looks different…

Turquise Caribbean Sea water in Cancun in the evening

I took this one also during the early morning hours. The clouds above gave the Caribbean Sea water a different nuance of blue-green color:

At sunrise the colors of the Caribbean get really dramatic.

Blue, turquoise, green and gold; sunrise, seawater, and walking on the beach… What a beautiful life!…

In the day time the turquoise water looks totally different πŸ™‚

Pool and beach resort in Cancun, Mexico

In Cancun, the pools water at the beach resorts have the same color as the sea. – You almost don’t really know where one ends and the other starts πŸ˜‰

I really like to photograph waves and surf, and some days the water gets a little rough. That’s the best time to get the sea-foam, over the sand and rocks of the beach…
