We had a wonderful time at Rio Secreto! Our tour guide Gonzo was so great and very informative. We loved the service, meal and the tour is something I will always remember and tell my friends and family about. I highly recommend this to anyone who is adventurous, loves water and caves and wants to be educated and informed.

We did the Rio Secreto as an excursion on our Disney cruise. I cant express enough how great this excursion was. The jungle, the people, the caves, the animals... it is quite an experience. The only two complaints i have (and they are not even very justifiable) is that you can not take your own camera and the there was... More

The advertisements do it no justice. IN-CRE-DI-BLE!!! Tour guides are very knowledgable about the geography and geology. As much free tequila and food as you can consume afterwards too!!!

Entire trip very well organised. Caves are something special and our guide Alfredo was excellent in knowledge and enthusiasm! The caves, the water and the experience is stunning and is a holiday must. Ok photos are pricey but they were good and food at the end reasonable. Great day out!!

Its a lovely attraction to see indeed a cave is impressive however not the price and the fact u can't use your camera, Im a very good photographer and won't accept your poor explanation that your photographers know exactly how and where to take great photos- I do too ,however of course I would not leave you $25 per photo-...

We booked this tour from the website(not through a tour company) and so glad we did. They picked us up from our hotel and took us to a meeting point where we met other people going. Then we drove about an hour to the caves. One we got there we were assigned a tour guide and got ready to go... More

First off, the cenote is unquestionably one of the best in the world. It is beautiful, well-preserved and maintained so that visitors feel safe. I've been yo a few others, and they don't hold a candle to Rio Secreto. Its just that amazing. Our tour guide, Alejandro, was kind and knowledgeable. He wasn't the most fun guide in the world,...

Something to mark off your bucket list! Cavern is only open 4 years. Been to many other caverns, but this one beats them all. Saw so many things I've never seen before. There are areas that you actually float/ swim. A little tough if you have mobility issues. Highly recommend!

We had 8 people in our group. We didn't know what to really expect. We arrived and were greeting all the great friendly workers at Rio Secreto. It seems everyone really enjoys their jobs, everyone was very friendly. Our tour guide was Alex and he was excellent, especially since we had one person in our group who didn't know how... More
