The resort was gorgeous indeed. It's sad though that the people who work there (and take care of everything you see) make no more than 5 bucks / day. What's even sadder is that lots of tourists don't leave them any tips.
When I was in Mexico, I didn't know I was supposed to tip them for making my bed. Or carrying my luggage. Or cleaning my bathroom. Apparently you're supposed to tip for everything, but that's just a cultural thing I wasn't that familiar with having never been to that country before. Of course I wasn't at such a beautiful resort like you were. Being somewhere like Los Cabos, I think you can expect to be expected to tip.
Yeah, well the tip is supposed to be included into the overall price. It's an all inclusive. One shouldn't worry about a thing there. But the people are payed very low wages and the rent in that town is close to what you'd pay in Canada. In general, tourist towns are more expensive than regular towns. That is why I thought tipping it's normal. There are, of course, people who don't tip.
For this panorama I used 18 images. Usually you need a tripod to take the images straight. I don't use a tripod for these anymore.
What you need: Kolor Autopano Giga Tripod Camera
Try to take the first image, then go from left to right and take more images, always keeping a third of the previous image. Import the images in Autopano software, which will do the stitching for you, and then export the panorama.
