The tour exceeds one's expectation. It was very well organised, never had to kill time as some of the tours do. Enrike was very knowledgable, accommodating
and entertaining, kept the entire group very engaged at all times. The caves are full of history and the highlight is definitely the colours, well for me. The description of the tour is very accurate, however if you do intend to do the tour carry extra cash for the photos taken, electrical gadgets are not allowed in. Don't be shy to request for extra photos you may want to get inside for there is a package rate for bulk photos. Miss the place already!

The Plus Tour was very good. We enjoyed everything. I would highly recommend bringing bug spray for the Repelling portion. I also am having a little tough time getting copies of our photos. I will update this review once I get them. Thx Rio!! 👍

I had so much fun. I went solo and had just as much fun as if I were with friends. The cave was awesome. Miraculous actually. The food was good at the end. Fresh. The transportation was comfortable on time and safe. I also purchased the pictures at the end. They came out great. Tour guide Mely and paparazzi gonzuelo (I think...) were great company

We were a fun and game group donning wet wetsuits and smelly water shoes to walk through the underground cenote and rapel into the abyss! The light/sound show was disappointing but otherwise great!

We wanted to visit a Cenote on our first trip to Mexico, but did not bargain for the whole underground river thing. Fears of claustrophobia were soon dispelled. Our guide Alahora (may be killing her name - so sorry) was wonderful. She knew each of our names in the first 5 minutes. And each of our concerns. She helped my husband through the tight spaces and helped another traveler through the higher water. She was serious in regards to safety and kept it light and funny while informative at the same time. We learned so much about the Mayan culture and nature. It was a great experience!! Would absolutely recommend it!

Four of us decided to go on the Rio Secreto excursion as per advice of Leonardo from Best Day Travel at our hotel and we couldn't be happier. Four of us were looking for something adventurous, fun yet different so we chose the Plus option ( there are 3 options: regular, plus and wild). We paid USD 104 per person and in the end we all agreed that it was the most well-spent $104. We got picked up at 7 30am and dropped off at 5pm. It was a whole day adventure so be prepared by having a big breakfast because you are going to burn some serious calories.
Words can not describe how mesmerizing and beautiful the caves are. You just have to go and experience for yourself. Truly captivating. And this comes from someone who has visited quite a few caves in Asia before.
The nature reserve where the caves are located is extremely well-kept, staff are helpful and friendly. Our guide, Pablo, who was with us for the whole 6 hours is amazing. He is knowledgeable, organized, fun and just so easy to be around. Our group of 12 plus Pablo and 1 photographer bonded so well that we felt like family and not a group of strangers.
Bring your swimsuit, sunglasses, a granola bar or two because you would get hungry half way through ( after the bike ride)
Towels, aqua shoes and wet suits and buffet lunch are provided.
Hands down the best experience we had in Cancun!

This place was a crowd favorite on our trip to Playa Del Carmen. The cave was so much fun and such a great experience for our kids. This is a MUST SEE attraction for sure. SO VERY COOL!!!!! All the kids (ages 7 - 18) LOVED it.
My only negative is that you are not allowed to bring in your own camera or phone, which really is fine; whatever. There is a photographer that takes AMAZING photos throughout the cave. The only problem is that they sell the pictures for an arm & a leg. $25 for ONE photo or $150 for all photos. We were on vacation with another family and made up the entire tour group. So, we were able to split the $150 with them and get all the pictures - and we know everyone in all the pics. If you don't know the rest of your group, then I can't imagine wanting to spend so much for a bunch of pictures of people you don't know. We had one more family with us that had to go with a separate group in the cave b/c the max group size is 9. That family did not buy any pictures b/c of the cost and they had been with people they don't know. Rio Secreto would not go down on their photo price.

This was totally incredible!! The inside of the cave and the tour guides information was just perfect.

Only downside was you're not allowed to take yr own pictures so if you want a memento of the trip you need to pay 100usd for the photo package or 25usd per pic

Otherwise a great half day out

We booked our cave exploration through MSC and were very impressed with the experience. The facilities were very impressive, providing wetsuits, life jackets, water shoes and helmets. The water was definitely cold and we spent a large amount of time in it. Our guid was very informative, helpful and patient. At one point our group held hands and laid on our backs in the complete darkness and silence for two minutes.Pictures are not permitted unless you purchase them. They had a legitimate photographer and the pictures were very impressive. It was an incredible and unique experience. Would recommend for anyone with an adventure seeking attitude. Would 100% return again.
