Goodbye Puerto Aventuras, Panoramas, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Today we leave Villas del Mar and  Puerto Aventuras.  It's been a great month and we've enjoyed being here as well as the occasional side trips to other nearby places. For this final blog post, I thought I'd roll up all the panoramic images I've taken during the time here to keep them in one place. 

I still experience child-like glee from a panoramic photograph.  I just don't understand how I can move the camera through an arc of 180-degrees rotation and end up with a focused image. It must be magic. And at my age, it's challenging to smoothly rotate my upper body through 180-degrees while keeping the camera level with the horizon.

Not actually in Puerto Aventuras but, the following are within about a half hour by bus or car:
