One of the best decisions we've made for a long time. On Apr 14th/'14, another couple and ourselves, despite a bad back and 3 bad knees between us decided to do an adventure that didn't involve leaving early and getting home late. As we were staying a short distance from Playa Del Carmen, another plus for not having to travel... More

Just returned from a week at Playa Del Carmen and was so glad we booked this. We tell everyone to go. Love the natural atmosphere it really makes one feel like a true explorer. We are a family of six with my youngest being four it was hard to find activities that would satisfy us all. This place nailed it.... More

My wife and I visited Rio Secreto during a 4-night stay in Cancun in March 2014 for our honeymoon. I was very interested in checking out the Yucatan cenotes and swimming through the refreshing, ground-filtered water. This was one of the only tours that didn't involve adrenaline junkie obstacle courses involving the cenotes. The drawback of the adventure tours for... More

Good value for the price, very friendly guides, totally different experience. The food provided was also very good compared to what we got in other tours.

Loved the beauty and adventure. Crystal clear cool water which we hiked in through several caves following along a river. They supplied all the gear. Our guide, Raul, was excellent. The photographer captured amazing shots that we purchased for a very reasonable price. Great adventure!

Don't listen to the warnings in the AAA Mexico Guide - they are ridiculous! The road to the caves is not a problem at all and the walk to and from the cave entrances are easy even for us older, less mobile types. Walking in the caves is a bit of a challenge but so worth the effort. Paolo, our... More

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
