Cancun is Mexico’s premier resort destination, far outshining the role that Acapulco had once played for North America’s top holiday vacation nation. If images of white sand beaches, clear blue water, jet skiing, scuba diving and lounging by the pool aren’t enough of a draw, add to that image sensational nightclubs with larger than life shows and a plethora of ancient Mayan ruins and you have a sense of what the Cancun experience is all about.
The MS Antilla was a German Cargo Ship that sunk on May 10, 1940 off the coast of Aruba. At that time, Germany was at war with the Netherlands. The Dutch Marines saw the anchored supply ship and demanded that it surrender. Rather than doing that, Antilla’s captain devised a plan to scuttle the ship. He heated up the boilers, exposed them to the cold seawater, which caused the Antilla to explode and sink in 8 minutes. The captain and his crew fled on lifeboats, but were captured several days later. At nearly 400 feet long, the Antilla is one of the largest wrecks in the Caribbean.
We traveled to the Exuma Cays (pronounced “keys”) in the Bahamas for a week of diving and shooting in this ocean environment. The Exumas are a chain of very small pretty islands just south of Nassau. Water temperatures were unseasonably cool, but the local inhabitants didn’t seem to mind. We captured some great footage of sharks, rays, turtles and night creatures.
Tulum is a laid-back beach town on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, situated some 80 miles south of Cancun. It marks the southernmost boundary of the region known as the Riviera Maya. While Tulum is cherished for its beautiful beaches and upscale hippie vibe, the town is probably most famous for its impressive Mayan ruin, set dramatically on a clifftop overlooking a stunning stretch of turquoise ocean.
