Built in the Post Classic Period (1200-1500bc) the Ruins of Tulum were a Coastal Strip with trading ports, keypoints on mercantile routes. The mayans chose the most fascinating locations to build their ceremonial centers, and tulum is a must when in the area. Learn about their oral tradition and ancestral beliefs and understand their way of viewing life.


A type of sweat lodge originated by ancient prehispanic indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica. It has been used for hundreds of generations as part of a curative ceremony, cleansing ritual, healing the sick, improving health, but most of all for spiritual reasons.

Become one with mother nature and surround yourself by the misteries of the universe, asking permition to the 4 cardinal points.

  • Unique Experience
    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.

  • Awesome experience!
    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!!

  • 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!
