Our private tour begins in Izamal. It is known in Yucatán as the Yellow City (most of its buildings are painted yellow) and the City of Hills (that actually are the remains of ancient temple pyramids). Izamal is an important archaeological site of the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization. It is probably the biggest city of the Northern Yucatec Plains and remains a place of pilgrimage within the Yucatán state, now for the veneration of Roman Catholic saints.
A large Franciscan Monastery was built atop the acropolis. It was named after San Antonio de Padua. Completed in 1561, the open atrium of the Monastery is still today second in size only to that at the Vatican.
"Yucatecan" gastronomy stands out for its harmonious combination of fresh tastes, colors and scents, which make its typical dishes a worthy representative of the cultural richness. Allow yourself enjoy the environment and feel the Yucatecan generosity in one of the most beautiful towns of Mexico.
"This Mayan city stands today as one of the most popular archaeological sites in Mexico. Chichen Itza is located just west of Valladolid one of the most beautiful colon towns from XVI century. The night tour at the archaeological site of Chichen Itzá, know also as Kukulkan nights, begins at the main entrance of the site. For about 45 minutes, you will be able to visit some of the main buildings in the surroundings of the Pyramid of Kukulkán (The Castle). Afterwards, you will be seated in front of the pyramid to enjoy the projection on its façade. “For 25 minutes you will enjoy taking pictures of the secrets of Chichén Itzá´s amazing history.”
*flash and tripod photography is not allowed. We love this archaeological site in Mexico, this huge stone pyramid reaching for sky was built as a symbol of power and where the gifts to the gods were given. We will show you the ancient power and technology of the Mayan civilization. “At sunset, Kukulcan returns to these lands and the night in Chichen Itza is filled up with light to take you on a journey through the history, legend, tradition and the heritage of this ancient culture.”

This was an excellent tour that lasted 12 hours and was extremely unique. After doing research into the best activities for my girlfirend and i, I stumbled upon Mario's company. Mario supplied us with our own professional grade cameras and taught us to use them so that we could keep the memory sticks ourselves (…) extremely personal experience that allowed us to keep the memories forever.
I HIGHLY recommend using Bushman Photography if you do not want to get stuck in a huge group of tourists, doing cliche things (…) The food provided was also a pleasant surprise. 5/5 would reccomend to anyone.
"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.
We we able to access Chichén Itzá before it was open to the public. I have to say that this was a magic experience for me and my wife; the peace, the quietness but at the same time the voices of the jungle were there.
I definitely recommend taking a tour with this guys. Our guide was an expert both on the touristic sites and I'm shooting outdoors.
A perfect 10
"A wonderful day"
I went with my husband and two friends to tour the cenote and lagoon. Besides having learned a lot about photography, we visited magical and non-touristy places. Mario is an excellent guide. We're thinking about taking another of their tours!!
"I loved It!!!"
Photo, culture, nature, history, and peace are things that live in this great experience. I like photography but had never taken a class. I learnt a lot with Bushman besides having spent an amazing d time. Eager to repeat it many times ... super recommended!

We did both days and so glad that we did. Mario and Paulina were very professional and showed us some incredible places! We had done a photo tour before that we thought was amazing until this one! It was truly an unforgettable experience and would love to do another tour with Bushman Photography and Mario and Paulina on our next visit!
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!
