Without a doubt one of the best experiences ever. My wife and I did this as an excursion on a Carnival Cruise. I was a little hesitant because I float like a bag of rocks and there is some swimming involved. I'm very glad I went anyway. After changing into your swimsuit in the large bathroom changing area at the... More

Amazing experience and our guide Alina was so good. One word of warning I can't swim that well at all and although you get life jackets you do really need to be confident in water as there is a swim at the end. Thank you so much to Alina for helping me.

The tour was better than expected. We booked our tour from the Marriott CasaMagna which included transportation from Cancun and felt it was priced fairly at 95 USD. Once we arrived we were divided up into smaller tour groups, ours had only 7 people. Carlos was our tour guide and he very much enjoyed his job, he was always checking... More

We took the cave tour today and were very pleased. Carlos was our guide and he was awesome. He made sure that everyone was happy during the tour and had a great sense of humor. We were down under in the cave for an hour and a half and the time flew by. He was well informed and seemed to... More

Upon arrival we were told we would NOT be permitted to take our camera into the caves. Honestly it left such a bad taste in my mouth that I really didn't enjoy the visit like I should have. I felt VERY ripped off to have to pay $79 USD for a low res CD of pix they took of us.... More

If you have been to a cave and have seen stalctites and stalgmites, the admission fee ($USD 77 USD or $MXN1,000) is very steep for what it is. In the intro video they tell you that they donate a "significant portion" of the admission fee for the preservation of the cave. When I asked what is the significant portion, they... More

The Rio Secret tour was amazing. On the middle on of the Jungle, you will never find something nicer to do. 15 min away from Playa Del Carmen you have to do it. Ask for Alfredo your tour guide he super nice and will teach you a lot.

Went to Rio Secreto two days ago. My wife, daughter, son & me. Wife was the one who want to do something like this, but in Julie fashion got herself terrified even before getting into the cave. I give a lot of thanks to our guide, Luis, who got her calm and made the whole experience possible. It was a... More
