Hi. The great people at tripadvisor suggested I hop over here to ask a few questions. I read several threads about cenote photos.  On one of them, someone mentioned $400 for a local photographer, but I can't find the details.


I've been scrolling through about a million websites, sending emails, etc, looking for a reasonable price for cenote photos.  All I want is photos of the 2 of us, me in a fancy dress. I understand that most photographers are looking for the big jobs, but this is just a cheap-ee job.  Prices I am finding range from $1000 to $3000. This seems really steep since we're both divers and take pictures under water all the time.


Has anyone already done all this research? Could you point me in right direction? We are willing to stay closer to the photographers home base, or travel off-season to keep the price down.  It doesn't have to be the quality of Vogue or Sports Illustrated.


Also, what types of dresses work best? Lots of cloth, less cloth? And does anyone know the best waterproof make-up?
Thanks so much!

Congrats Florida1 + welcome to the forum ! have a question for you......why go in a cenote with freezing cold water when the warm ocean is right here, as well as lots of pools + fountains, etc.........might be something to consider........all the best with your plans :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
