What you'll do

Join me for a day of exploration and photography in Tulum's coolest Cenotes.

We'll be the first ones at the spot. I have picked some of the most spectacular Cenotes to discover and shoot.

The cenotes that we visit have beautiful turquoise water and we also encounter wild life. You can change your outfit and even use something a bit more artistic if you have that in mind.

Submerge yourself in the ancient waters of Cenotes, explore this Mayan entrance to the Underworld while I capture your adventure.

Ideally you are a strong swimmer and can dive a few meters holding your breath. If this is not you don't worry we can work around it, give you a life-jacket and still make sure you have a great experience.

./././.

At the end every participant will get 15 professionally edited images.

The gallery is delivered 3 weeks after the experience.

The underwater photos are taken with a GoPro Hero Black 9.

You can add Portrait/Lifestyle or Drone Photography for an extra fee, I use a Canon 5D IV and a DJI Mavic 2 Pro

I edit the photos according to personal style, images can vary according to weather and light conditions.

Hi! My name is Manuel, I'm a Mexican and Tulum based photographer.

Photography is a big passion of mine, I love to capture the beauty of the moment, empower people, discover new places, perspectives and share conscious ideas.

I'm AIDA certified free-diver and have practiced over 5 years now. Big part of my family is from Yucatan, and I've lived in the most iconic places in the Riviera Maya including Bacalar, Mahahual and Merida since 2010.

This was an excellent experience with Manu and an opportunity to gain another perspective of Tulum's famous Cenotes. I haven't seen my pictures yet, but the experience of hanging out with Manu as he took us around Tulum was fun itself, and judging by his portfolio and ability to accommodate extra requests to get the perfect shot, I'm sure they will be great.

Manu is the one and only you should book when visiting Tulum. It was a great experience and he knows the best places. He is never in a rush. there is time enough for relex and taking great pictures in and around the cenotes. We highly recommended to book one of his tours.

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Manu. We love to travel, but over the years realized we never have photos together :). At first my husband was hesitant about the whole photoshoot thing. But Manu made us both feel so comfortable. He was so kind and hospitable throughout the day. He picked us up at our condo, drove us to two stunning very different cenotes to take the photos. It was just lovely!! He felt like an old friend. We highly recommend this experience! Thanks, Manu!

Manu was on time and very accommodating. I am very picky with my pictures. He made sure to take as many as I wanted, the way I wanted. Highly recommend.

Manu was so fun. It felt like he was part of the group instead of the guide. Manu eases my insecurities about the shoot and was easy to work with. There was no pressure to get it right the first time. This was the best experience I had in Mexico.

Manu is a photographer who is so personable, great and talented that he can make someone super self conscious feel like they’re doing a great job. I was in the area for a few days and this airbbb experience with many was the best part of my entire trip. His photo pea turned out amazing and he’s so flexible with working with various levels of swimming skills. Amazing time. Thank you so much!!!!
