Not gonna lie, I was a but terrified to do this, but I'm so glad I did. It was an unbelievable experience that I will never forget. Our tour guide was Rene and he was equal parts informative and hilarious. He even took us on a little detour at the end after we should have exited and we got to... More

Best trip we ever made in our 16 days vacation. Well worth the money and the guide (rodrigues) made it even better. Never met a guy with a bigger passion for nature and everything around it. Thanks for the great time.

Alfredo was our guide today. He took us down into the Mayan Underworld after a brief blessing of smoke and insence, and all I can accurately say is "wow"! This isn't purely a cave under the ground, this truly is a life changing journey. The long and twisting caverns systems are absolutely filled with stalagmites, stalactites, columns, and underwater features... More

We booked through our hotel to go to Rio Secreto- an amazing underground freshwater river near Playa del Carmen. It was going to be a rainy day so we figured it would be a great way to spend the day. What an awe inspiring place. They provide everything, transportation, wet suits, water shoes, helmets wit lights, Lunch and a guide!... More

This was my second time to Rio Secreto. They even asked which tour I had taken the first time, to take me on a different one, so I would see different things! Very wonderful guide, and hiking, and swimming was such an experience. I will definitely go again. They offer 4 different paths, which means I will go 2 more... More

We took our 7 year old son (typically excellent swimmer) to Rio Secreto as an excursion while on a Disney cruise. Even though he freaked out in the caves, our guide, Pablo, was terrific with him. The water is cold and we appreciated the wet suits. In retrospect, I think the dark and the cold got to him. This tour... More

If you don't' like nature wonders, miracles and mystery, than this is not for you. This tour provided in partnership with Carnival cruise and it was great. The boat to Cozumel is top of the line with a bar inside and air condition. Then very professional drivers will take you inside the jungle on a 15 minute ride trip. We... More

My fiancee and I went to Rio Secreto back in May and we were very impressed. It was our first excursion in Mexico and we are so glad that we did it. Pablo was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We went on the Allegria route and we will return to see the other two the next... More
