From Jan of Portofino....

The pictures from Google Maps / Earth have been updated from Las Terrazas all the way to Mexico. I think the pictures were taken in 2010 before Hurricane Richard (because that one moved our breach tree), in the morning between 9 and 11am.

...it's odd that some places (like Coco Beach for example) are not even on there... lot's of different time periods stitched together it seems. The detail of the neighborhood up here is pretty cool though!

The 2003 image is actually taken in January 2001, after Keith. You can see by the stage of construction of different resorts.
