Have just spent great day at Rio Secreto. Booked online, staff very helpful in making phone booking. Travelled by car from Cancun, journey time approx 1hr 15 mins. Easy to find and well signposted. Upon arrival, met by hosts, short briefing, before being taken to shuttle buses for 7km, bumpy bus ride. Introduced to our guide Julio, who kitted us... More

This was an amazing time! We were, I believe 20 meters below ground. You are supplied with a wet suit, life jacket, water shoes & a helmet that has a headlight. Water was very refreshing! As there had been lots of rain, we swam more than walked. Excellent guide, Alina....

I can't say enough.... This was amazing. It was breathtaking and well worth it! My husband and I love Playa del Carmen and wanted to do an excursion this time. We were married in Playa and had been to a cenote, so decided to do Secreto instead. SOOOOO HAPPY! We took a taxi from our hotel, ($15US) instead of a... More

Just completed a vacation in Playa Del Carmen and the highlight of the trip was The "Privilege" tour at Rio Secreto, which was my 4th time there. The "Privilege" tour, although a fair amount more in cost than the standard tours, was well worth the experience. Our tour guide, Raoul (with 3 r's) and photographer Juan were outstanding and showed... More

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-...
