How to build a deck on a roof

This is a great example of how to turn a pitch roof into a sundeck. This one on a guest house in West End, Roatan, Honduras has no safety guard and falls a sheer 40ft onto the beach.
That aside, its a very neat example of how a deck can easily be fitted to a roof to make a fun sunning area.

Around 700AD the Mayans built Tulum.

It was the last of the great sites built to and used as a key trading position to ship produce up and down the Mexican coast.

Its in a stunning position, and if I were to build a warehouse and office.... I couldnt think of a better vantage point.
The sea is perfect and the sand like sugar.

Hip Hotels - Playa Del Carmen

This hotel in Playa Del Carmen uses simple lighting and a gigantic video wall playing Casablanca on loop throughout the night.

The pool has AWAY FROM YOU spelled out on tiles below, and out of the picture there is a decked bar with cabanas and neon strip lighting.

The hotel group also have a place called Basico two blocks away and one in Mexico City called, The Condessa. All are very habitable.
