TTD Best Cenote Locations and Advice near Riviera Maya Mexico

Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions as to where to go?

I'm a bit worried about going to deep cenotes as my dress is quite heavy and i don't want to sink - so any ideas/help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Sunshine,

 

There are plenty of cenotes in the area BUT is not that easy as it seems... as Pierre says, you have to consider the sunset time and the location where the cenote is located since sunlight is very important for good photos.  If you are bringing your own photographers and they are not familiar with the area, I would suggest to ask your photographers to do a couple of days prior your TTD session a site inspection in order get the best hour for shots and avoid people around so you can get beautiful photos!

 

Good Luck!

Hello ladies!

A lot of the best cenote locations are actually private locales hired directly with the photographers. We have our "secret" off the map spots and special agreements with the owners. It's often better this way to avoid crowds at the more well-known sites, with a lot of people in the water it can really stir up sediment and make it far less personal and special. Talk to your photog (Del Sol perhaps?) and see what they recommend.

 

Here are a few cenote trash the dress photos to stimulate your senses, let us know if you would like to be our next mermaid bride!

Hello!

 

So you are saying that photographers have exclusivity agreements with the locals that manage the cenotes? My friends are professional photographers and will be doing the shoot. Do you have this agreement for most cenotes? We were going to scout out spots when we get there the first day and find a spot....

Not necessarily "exclusivity" agreements, but working arrangements with some of the "off the beaten track" cenotes. If you are going scouting, I recommend looking around the area south of Playa del Carmen, there are a lot of great places around the Barcelo Maya area. :)

Such great information. Thank you!  I definitely want to do a ttd session in a cenote and I'll be going with a local photographer.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
