I proudly share with you another National Geographic Traveler magazine cover page. This time the Mexican issue for June 2016 on its cover features one of my underwater photo from Mexican caves called cenotes located near the Cancun on the Yucatan peninsula. I think that underwater photography always deserves media attention because the beauty of underwater world should be presented to wider audience through photography. Though it is very difficult for me to have a special surprise underwater after more than 20 years of scuba diving, I’d say that I was very surprised at the time I took that photo because of the unreal ambient underwater created by light beams that are unbelievably thick and various in shape and colors!


National Geographic Traveler is the world’s most widely read travel magazine. It championed sustainable travel before it was cool and, eight times annually, celebrates journeys that are about place, experience, culture, authenticity, living like the locals, and great photography. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel, and stresses inquisitive not acquisitive trips.
It employs storytelling and you-are-there photography to inspire readers to pick up and go. And, with the theme of “Nobody Knows This World Better,” it eschews fashion and fluff in favor of articles that offer a strong sense of place, inspiring narratives that make readers take trips, and solid service information to help them plan those trips.
