Family, music and faith by the sea

Mexico is a kaleidoscope of traditions and cultures that gives birth to unforgettable experiences across the nations differing terrains, climates and cultures. This collection of images examines village life along the Western coast of Mexico.
The far reaches of the Mexican coastline delivers a refreshingly traditional flavour of faith, music and family; otherwise, what I like to call the real Mexican Trinity. Pristine vast oceans, crystal sands and idyllic temperatures augment a way of living that can only be described as ‘inclusive’. Whether it is Sunday mass orchestrated by the local Mariachi band or a fisherman parading his prize catch down the street, the authenticity of village life is glorified in the most unique fashion on the Mexican coast.

Maybe there is something in the water.
