Capture Mexico’s Wildlife in Photographs

Just 14 lucky guests will get an unparalleled view of the untouched mangrove swamps, six miles of waterways, and some 200 species of wildlife native to Mayakoba, Mexico, as a part of the Wildlife Photo MasterClass weekend, with a stay in a poolside villa at Banyan Tree Mayakoba. Hosted by the National Geographic photographers Steve Winter, Tim Laman, and Brian Skerry, the three-night photography retreat (starting at $4,158 per person) includes guided excursions to photograph the region’s forests and Mayan ruins as well as daily breakfasts, a lunch, and two dinners. Guests will receive one-on-one instruction from the photographers on composition, lighting, metering, equipment, and more. The program is offered from January 24 to 27, with at least three more sessions planned for 2014. (800.591.0439, www.mayakoba.com)
