Abandoned

rob moses exif data canon 6d 17-40mmWhen I was down in Mexico recently I had the pleasure of poking around an abandoned section of a resort. From what I heard these places got hit by a hurricane and the people who owned them didn’t have insurance and decided not to brother fixing them up. The site had a bunch of these little houses and a main entrance with a bar and other amenities (will post picture of that place another day). It’s a shame nothing ever became of these places, because even in the shape they are in now, it doesn’t seem like they couldn’t be fixed. I’m sure right after the hurricane they were in much better shape too. Oh well, I guess the people who owned them must have been in a tight spot. Too bad!

  1. I love the photo of the front porch. Abandoned places have such character. I have to say I’ve never seen one in such a tropical location. Very pretty and also sad.

    1. Thank you! I was rather surprised to see these places actually. I didn’t expect to see anything like that. I was happy though, because it was my first time poking around some places like that. But you are right, it is indeed very sad.

  2. Amazing to see how quickly nature comes to take back what it previously had. Just this weekend my wife and I were watching a documentary on YouTube about Centranilla Pennsylvania which is a town that was also abandoned within the last two decades due to a coal fire burning underneath it which started in 1962. If you’re bored one night, check it out. Love these images!

      1. I also ended up watching this video and this was filmed in 1982 right before people started leaving the town. I would watch the first link and then this one. It quite fascinating to see how things played out. I’m heading up there next month to see the town myself. Or perhaps what’s left of it. https://youtu.be/ow4UERykRbg

    1. Hey Marcus, I watched the Centranilla doc the other day. It was awesome, thank you for the link! I love stuff like that. What a shame they lost their town :(. Especially since they could have saved it right in the beginning if they had made the right moves. It is unbelievable that it is still burning! So crazy. I haven’t watched the next one yet, I’m gonna check it out this weekend :).

  3. In 1989 I honeymooned in BoraBora. At that time a huge hotel was abandoned for some reason. The jungle seemed to be devouring it. I wish I had taken pictures. Cool post.

      1. So I asked, and yeah, he can’t remember either. However he googled it and found that there have been a number of hotels abandoned there! Said there are videos. Weird huh? Except that it’s so remote that just getting materials into the area must cost a ton!!! In 1989, a can of coors beer was 6 dollars!
