The Journey

This workshop + tour is designed for those who love Birdwatching. Mexico has 1,150 bird species from the 10,507 species that are known in our planet.

Mexico is positioned in the 11th place for the number of bird species around the world. With 104 endemic species. This is a magical place full of; frigates, Brown pelicans, boobies, cormorants, herons, egrets, anhinga, ospreys, white ibis, limpkins, wood storks, ducks, hawks, jays, motmots, trogons and hummingbirds.

“We have 564 different species in the Yucatan peninsula. That is 44% of the total in our country”
The tour starts before sunrise with an early pick up at 5:00 am. We will start our journey at the local community of Muyil in Sian Kaan Biosphere Natural Reserve. Just 30 minutes from Tulum. Taking pictures of the sunrise in a pristine lagoon over the turquoise water, a great photogenic location carefully chosen for best landscape photography.

“At the same time, your Photo Pro will train you in the use of your equipment so you can come out with much more than a few nice pictures, at your own pace and with personalized attention.”

Then we will continue through the eco-path for birdwatching with our ornithology expert in the Mayan jungle. Visiting the highest observation tower in the area. Then we will enjoy shooting the Muyil Mayan Ruins. On our way back we will make a stop in a Cenote we carefully chose. This is one of the most beautiful and virgin underwater caverns in the peninsula. This natural pit or sinkhole is the result of the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes pure groundwater underneath.

The workshop+tour is diligently planned, researched and scouted for unique photographic opportunities, with the emphasis on birdwatching with the company of local experts.

  • "Experience this unique photo safari. Highly recommended."
    It is a great choice for a different trip. I knew nothing about nature photography and learned a lot, I even have a couple of photos that were incredible. My girlfriend who had more knowledge, learnt new techniques and reaffirmed what she already knew. We met in a single day; cenotes, incredible ruins, the jungle, walked Tulum and take a boat in booking Siankaan to finish on an island. In each place we took spectacular pictures of animals, landscapes, nature and people. We were lucky to see a sunset with hundreds of birds flying above us. The tour includes lunch and took us to a very nice restaurant open, spectacular air in Tulum. Mario was an exceptional guide with the patience to teach about photography, in my case and in the case of my girlfriend much support and shared their knowledge and tips. I recommend it.

  • Incredible experience. One of the best tours I have taken!

    I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone. The staff are well organized, friendly, attentive, professional, positive and obviously passionate for their art. They provide one on one attention with an easy and understandable explanation of the features and settings of the camera. The sites visited are unique and interesting and looking at them through the lense gives you a whole new perception of the world around you. Snacks and food provided were of high quality and delicious. I left the tour with a sense of accomplishment and a new life skill.

    Thank you so much for the incredible experience. I hope to be able to participate in this experience again in the future!
