Nice pictures, but please note you have posted them in the wrong section. I will move this thread to Urban Showcase, for our original photos taken by SSC members. We move threads like this only once for people, and if they again put a thread in the wrong section we sadly have to delete it.
Thank you!

OMG in most of the pics it seems like Cancún... but Cancún doesn't have those tall buildings... I loved this city (is it a city? or is it a whole coast?)

Thank you for pics!
