What you'll do

Join me for a day of underwater exploration and photography in 2 of Tulum's coolest Cenotes.

We will meet early in the morning so we can catch the day's best light hours. I have picked some of the most spectacular Cenotes to go to, discover and shoot inside.

The cenotes are completely different in structure, underwater ecosystems, flora and fauna - which means each of the waters will be of different color, temperature and have different fish and animals inside. You can change your outfit in between all three, giving you the opportunity of having photos in a variety of clothes and bathing suits.

Submerge yourself in the ancient waters of Cenotes, explore this underwater world 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 an amazing experience and great photos.





At the end every participant will get 15 professionally edited images (I don't deliver raw files). The gallery is delivered 4 weeks after the experience.

The underwater photos are taken with a GP7 with a GoPole dome.

You can add Portrait/Lifestyle or Drone Photography for an extra fee.

I edit the photos according to personal style, images can vary according to weather and light conditions, also I do not do body modification editing.

Hey there!

My name is Manuel Ibarra (Manu), I'm a Mexican and Tulum based photographer, I've been practicing free-diving for over 5 years and photography for over 3 years. I am also a snorkel tour guide and have lifeguard training. Big part of my family is from the Mayan area, and I've lived here since 2010.

Through diving I discover new, rarely seen perspectives and through photography I capture the beauty of the underwater realm and share them with the world.

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.
