We booked this excursion thru our cruise, Ruby Princess, because we both agreed we needed to step out of our comfort zone! Boy were we glad we did! From the minute we stepped off the ship in Cozumel, Angel and Tomas were there to get us on the ferry to Playa del Carmen and then on the minivans to this... More

We booked this excursion through a Carnival cruise. It was fun and informative. We were given hard hats (good thing since I bumped my head a few times!), wet suits, and life jackets. Our guide was very helpful and concerned with everyone's safety. This is not an excursion for anyone who cannot move around well in uneven, tight spaces. We... More

This was one of the best excursions we've ever been on. We came on a Carnival cruise to Cozumel and everything was totally taken care of from getting to Playa Del Carman on the boat, vans to our destination, wet suits, hardhats with lights and venturing with a great and informative guide (Carine) through the amazing cave. Afterwards, a wonderful... More

We took this tour through Carnival from Cozumel. This was the best excursion we have been on. It takes a while to drive back to the cave which is not very deep. You arrive to a settlement in the middle of the forest. There are restrooms and lockers. You will be issued a wet suit, life jacket and helmet with... More

I really enjoyed this. Love that they kept the cave natural with no artificial lighting. I didn't think the water was that cold with a wetsuit. I actually wish the tour took us through more of the deeper parts, as I liked swimming through the cave much more than walking through it. The photos are admittedly overpriced, but I still... More

Booked this through the agent at our resort. This tour was recommended to us by friends. Our group consisted of 6 people. My wife,I, and our 6 yr. Old son and another couple with a young child. Paulo our guide was spectacular with the kids. After our ride a few miles into the jungle we prepared for the best tour... More

If you are even thinking about doing this...DO IT!!! It was by far one of the coolest things I've ever done! Just FYI: the water does stay cool year-round so you have to wear a wetsuit. You can still feel the cold water but the experience overpowers the cold! Beautiful, breathtaking and educational. The food was yummy and the staff... More

I had booked Rio Secreto prior to going to Xplor with my 2 teenage kids. After swimming in Xplor's underground caverns, I was concerned that Rio Secreto was going to be much of the same thing. This was not the case. Where Xplor and Xcaret caverns have obviously been touched by and modified by humans to cater to the tourists,... More
