The caves look just like the ones in the pictures on their website. You get to spend about 1 1/2 hours hiking and swimming through the cave and they take pictures all the way. If we wanted to buy the 15 or so pictures of us on a CD they wanted $79 or you could pick 1 photo for $25... More

Our family had a fantastic time viewing and experiencing the caves of Rio Secreto. The caves were spectacular and we really appreciated that they're trying to preserve it naturally. Our guide was Jorge and he was very knowledgable and a lot of fun. He loved to give us as much information as possible. The Mayan cuisine was great and even... More

Once in a lifetime opportunity - and suitable for almost all levels of ability - the guide was great - he helped out one woman who was afraid to go - the caves were spectacular.

Facilities are new and modern. Personal safety equipment supplied by the vendor was new, comfortable and CLEAN. Guide knowledgable and sensitive to visitors needs. Food, included with the tour, from a buffet, served after the tour was real, prepared by locals, served hot with satisfaction. There are no words that can describe the Cave, wonderful, inspiring and mind blowing for... More

The excursion is, as they say there, not an amusement park but a visit to a secret world in the jungle. It is a bumpy 4 km trek into the jungle and then you suit up and have an even bumpier walk and swim into the cenote. There is a short Mayan ceremony that reminds you that this is a... More

This was one of the best excursions that I have ever done -- it was so amazing to travel through an underground cave and swim in the river. It was so beautiful and peaceful. An experience not to be missed!!!

This tour was the highlight of my family trip to cancun. Very friendly staff and the guide is very knowlegeable for all the question that is related to the underground river and Mayan history. The underground river is natural preservation and thus the visitors weren't allowed to bring their personal cameras and other belongings(lockers, helmet, towels and wet suits are... More
