Triathlete magazine’s 2012 swimsuit photo shoot begins Wednesday from the beautiful Riviera Maya region of Mexico. The Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and Spa in Playa del Carmen, about 45 minutes outside of Cancun, will be hosting the team, which includes four triathlete swimsuit models: Boulder, Colo.-based pro Kristen Peterson, Colorado-based Xterra pro Branden Rakita, North Carolina-based age grouper Tara Martine (who entered the Triathlete.com Swimsuit Model Search), and San Diego-based coach, personal trainer and age grouper Nike Matanza.
Triathlete magazine has been publishing an annual swimsuit photo shoot every year since 1997. Photos during the four-day photo shoot will be taken on the stunning Sandos property, as well as in nearby Xel-Ha and Coba Lagoon, showcasing the lush, tropical scenery in the region. The shoot will showcase the latest in athletic swim apparel. Look for it in Triathlete magazine’s July issue.
