The Journey

This Private Tour is designed for those who are looking to immerse in a different culture and find a way to leave back something meaningful behind.

We pick you up at your hotel/site at 12:30 pm, just after lunch, and our first visit will be snorkeling into the depths of a Cenote to uncover the mysteries of age-old caverns. Then you will have a first-person encounter in a native Mayan Village that will give you a taste of sincere Mayan generosity. Enjoy the pristine waters of a Virgin Lagoonand walk through the jungle in a wild Monkey Sanctuary.

“This half-day experience is designed to present you a half day adventure to get intimate with places that are away from massive tourism and responsible with the Indigenous Tourism Guidelines. At the same time, you will learn how to take amazing pictures using the Canon DSLR camera that we will provide to everyone in your private group. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity.”


The Cenote we carefully choose 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. Major Maya settlements required access to adequate water supplies, and therefore cities, including the famous Chichén Itzá, were built around these natural wells. Some cenotes played an important role in Maya rites. Believing that these pools were gateways to the afterlife, the Maya sometimes threw valuable items into them.

The Cenote that you will visit is the biggest Cave in the World with water and we will provide you Snorkeling Gear for your Underworld Adventure. “Dare to do it!” We will enjoy shooting the light and shadows over the turquoise water. We will make a Photo Shoot for you in a place that looks like a secret paradise.


Enjoy the warm hospitality of a Mayan family in their own house and learn about their history and socially segregated culture. This first-person encounter in a native village will give you a taste of sincere Mayan generosity. You and your companions will get to know their way of life, the colors, artifacts, ingredients, aromas, and knowledge of medicinal plants, religion and more. We will enjoy their culture and find local goods and handicrafts. All this will add an intimate range of subjects for our photography. Portrait photography will be our focus.


Few places offer such a spectacular variety of natural environments as the Mayan region. The main reason for the incredible exuberance of animal life in the area is the lack of major human settlements. The absence of man has allowed the character of the landscape to remain practically unchanged for centuries.


What a better way to end up the day, embrace yourself with a beautiful sunset sitting on a deck and drinking wine. If you want, we will have canoes waiting for your ride.
