On an average day in April we received a message from Matt Adcock of Del Sol Photography; Matt asked with enthusiasm if Fly Cozumel was able to fly him and Sol above the beautiful coast of Riviera Maya, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, the Cancun hotel zone and Isla Mujeres. Smile. Of course we can. When Sony meets Cessna.
This coming from Del Sol Photography means “high quality picture time”. We immediately got excited, you got our attention Matt. We love aerial photography. Things got better. Matt & Sol had something special in mind. He continued telling us about his project. “Paradise in quarantine – Quintana Roo from the air.”
“During these days beaches, hotels and archaeological sites are closed.. I would like to make a documentary of all best known tourist spots in Quintana Roo that are closed right now. I would like to take photos of the Mayan Ruins of Tulum without people. I would like to get a picture of the archaeological site of Coba without people climbing the Nohoch Mul piramid. I am dreaming of having pictures of the beautiful beaches of Cancun without a single person. ” You can stop talking Matt. We are in. What a fantastic idea.”
Matt and Sol are eager to do business with other local companies that have passion in what they do. And so is Fly Cozumel. A match made in Riviera Maya. When Sony meets Cessna.
On Monday 27th of April Fly Cozumel met Del Sol Photography at the airport of Playa del Carmen. All of us full of high energy, excited as kids. Sol let Matt do the talking, but was the first to reach the plane. We went through the flight plan: take off from Playa del Carmen, then fly south along the coast of the Riviera Maya towards the archaeological site of Tulum. Next destination: the Mayan Ruins of Coba; and then back to the coast to fly to the hotel zone of Cancun. Last on the list of destinations: Isla Mujeres. We discussed what is possible and what is not; explained the headsets, and we got ready for departure.
Matt. “This is a special day, a day to remember. I have been living for many years in this area and Leo has been flying for quite a while above paradise. Most likely I will never in my life again see beaches, towns and archaeological sites again from the air without tourists.”
The flight itself… just WOW. WOW. WOW. Literally no words to be found to describe the prestige views. Planes and beaches we know so well, but this time without people….. Paradise (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Tulum and Riviera Maya) in quarantine. Check out here the aerial photography of Matt Adcock: Quintana Roo from the Air.
Dear Matt and Sol of Del Sol Photography. What a huge pleasure to have met you and to have gotten the opportunity to fly you around Riviera Maya and Cancun. Sony met Cessna; to be continued…..
