Cenote Underwater Photography

Shibari Tulum has a large open-air cenote that was considered sacred by the Maya. The hotel offers Cenote Underwater Photography sessions, which are open to everyone and take place in shallow water or near a rock you can hold onto. A good comfort level in the water is helpful, but there is no actual swimming involved in the photoshoot. The sessions require comfortable bathing suits and several beautiful outfits, and the photographer provides post-production editing to create stunning images of you in this awe-inspiring natural environment.
The cenote’s pure waters invite you to bask in sheer beauty and reconnect with nature. You don't need to hold your breath for a long time: Photos taken just inches away from the surface are often clients' favorites, thanks to their beautiful mirror-like effect. Each photo goes through meticulous post-production editing to remain 100% true to your natural beauty.
