My wife and I went on a tour here as a shore excursion from our cruise ship and have to say it was an amazing experience! Great for couples, singles or a family it truly shouldn't be missed. We started with a walk through the dense jungle (on a track of course) and then approach a Mayan spiritual chief who... More

Amazing time walking and swimming through the underwater cenote. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Life preservers are provided. The brief cold shower in the beginning will wake you up!

And big props to Carlos, who I know is reading his own press. What a guy! He is knowledgeable, entertaining, and really knows... More

If you do not see anything else in Cancun you do NOT want to miss this. This was an amazing place and once in a lifetime experience. Do the whole package if you can as it is so worth it. Francis was our guide and he was awesome. Very knowledgeable and funny. He will make you press on with confidence.... More

Thank you to guide Nunes, who showed us a great time and most importantly, kept everyone safe. Absolutely terrific customer service and attention to detail. Thank you Nunes and Rio Secreto for a...
