Went here just last week with a large group. We had a blast. It felt like a very authentic Jungle experience. The staff was very friendly and spoke some of the best English that we encountered on our trip. You start out by taking a 15 minute ride through the jungle. The road and vehicle are very primitive which added to the experience for us. The Aero cycle was serene and an awesome way to experience the jungle in an individual manner - very peaceful. The zip lines were very fun especially with the splashdown. Also really enjoyed the cenote swim / snorkel. Our guide (Julio) was very experienced and explained many fascinating things about the flora and fauna that surrounded us.

We had a personal photographer that accompanied us and the photos he got were amazing. Had a very good experience here and would definitely recommend to others.

We visited last week and absolutely loved it. The zip line coaster was a blast! Our guides, Jimmy and Gonzalo were very friendly and they made the trip that much more fun. I highly recommend Hidden Worlds to anybody looking for fun!

First time zip lining, it's not hard at all since there are 2 professionals making sure everything is safe and 1 photographer who capture this amazing experience. They will guide you through from the first time they picked up from the entrance until they dropped you back. We took the ultimate, which were Jungle Zipline, Splash zipline the one that ends in the cenotes water, and Avatar Zipline. They don't have the rappeling at the time we came, so they let us do avatar twice to replace that, it's not a big deal, we're fine with that. Put on your insects repellent, they sell a small bottle for $6 and bring your water bottle as they charge about $3 if I'm not wrong. All in all, it's a fun experience, peole are nice & helpful.

We were looking online for places to experience a cenote (along with other atractions in the RM) to avoid the expensive excursions for travel agencies. We found this one that was very close to Bahia Principe where we were staying.

At the arrival, we found that it was too desert to be a good turistic attraction. There was maybe 2 or 3 couples in a truck going to one of the attractions they got there, "but not to the cenote", we were told. The lady showed us a video of what we could see if wanted, and we chose the "cenote only" option that was what we were looking for.

We had to wait for a while for the guide that would take us to the cenote to arrive. We preobably waited about 20-25 minutes as he was not on site. When I was starting to get impatient(serioulsy, I don't like to wait, mainly when I am paying), he arrived in another truck.

Despite the wait, all the staff was very solicitous, and our guide (I guess his name was Eli) was a fantastic person. After a few minutes preparing the equipment we hop on to the truck and Eli took us in a five minute trip inside the jungle til the hole where our adventure would begin.

I must confess I was a bit nervous about entering in a hole in the ground and explore an underground cave with snorkel equipment, but all my fears vanished after we started to enter the cave. If you are a claustrophobic person, don't go, maybe it is too much for you. But if you are a person that, like me, think that sometimes can feel claustrophobic, then don't hesitate, you will be ok. The underground formations are amazing, the experience as a whole worthed every cent, and the guide was remarkable.

A place far from the crowds that accumulate in the most popular spots, but definitely a fantastic cenote to visit, see and learn about the curiosities of the dozens of cenotes interlinked in the RM area.

We were in Playa Del Carmen with a group of 9. We had our adult children and their friends with us. Their ages were low 20's. Four of us were around age 50. We had previously been to Xplor but our children had not. The main thing they wanted to do was ziplines so we were torn between coming here or going to Xplor again. We had watched video from Hidden Worlds and we saw Avatar the Roller coaster zipline. This was what made our decision to come here.
First we start off in the Mayan Limosine. It was a big bumpy vehicle which took us into the jungle to the ziplines. Some people complained about this in their reviews but we thought it was great!! From there we started with the ziplines. The first one was pretty small but was still fun. The second one we ziplined into a dark cave and landed in the cenote. It was pitch black in there and you had no idea when you would hit the water! It was so fun!!!! We loved it so much!! From there we rapelled into the cave. This was also really fun. The younger ones rapelled upside down! From there we did Avatar the Rollercoaster zipline. It was so much fun! We ended up in the pitch black cave again! It was amazing! After this we snorkeled in the cenotes. These are all natural cenotes. It was awesome and almost a little scary going through small areas in the cave. Our great tour guides Jimmy and Gonzales always made us feel safe though. From there we did the Aero Cycle. This was fun but we had a very slow couple of people in front of us and we had to wait around quite a bit. After we were done they made us an amazing lunch of chicken tacos. It was so yummy!
This tour was very enjoyable. We had a great time. It is a little slow because if you have a big group it takes a bit to get everyone hooked up. I was very glad we did this tour though.
I would like to explain a little about how it is set up. We were worried about if some people didnt want to do every activity would they be alone while waiting. The way it is set up is all the activities start and end right by each other. So if someone doesnt want to do one activity they just wait there. People are starting each activity one after another so the one waiting wont really be alone. The aero cycle is the last one and it is a little ways away but it starts and ends in the same spot also so someone could just wait there if they dont do it. Which worked out great because my husband had pulled his muscle and didnt do the aero cycle.
The only things we wish we could have changed is, we wish we could have done a couple of the activities 2 times. Also we were a group of 9 already, which would have been perfect but they added 3 more people to our group which made it pretty big. They people they added were great fun but it just made the wait times longer.
One more thing is dont wait till you get to Mexico to book this. Book it online. We waited because we were still undecided on which one we were doing and then the agent at our hotel did not offer this tour. So it was a little hard to book while we were there.We finally called them and booked it over the phone. The agents at the hotels or on the streets will try to get you to book a different tour so they can make their commission. They tried really hard to talk us out of this tour to do one of theirs. I am so glad we stuck to our guns and came here. It was a great tour!!!
