  • Very much worth visiting this place that looks like a magical place! I recommend it a lot. It is a stunning tour and the guide makes pleasant visit being very attentive and funny.

  • It is very good experience, I recommend to wear costumes that offer them and take the baton since the halfway point first steps into the water and there are stalagmites and you got no where to stand when you get the sunsets for not seeing them move the bottom of the agu to

  • River that secret has nothing. It's expensive, and you have some 100 people to do tour the tour is in a cave, water freezing. Out the photos that are $25 each, if you want to purchase.

  • An incredible and unique other worldly experience. It's easily one of the coolest places I've ever seen. Our guide was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable about the caves, answered all our questions and did a great job with our mixed language (English and Spanish) group. This tour includes a jungle hike and a moderate amount of physical ability to navigate the uneven and slippery surfaces in the caves. There are places where you'll be in water over your head and you'll have to squeeze through a few narrow passages but for me, those things added to the adventure. You'll be supplied with a wet suit, water shoes, life jacket and helmet with a lamp. At no time did I feel claustrophobic or worried about my safety.
  • This is a very interesting and unique place, an actual underground cave you get to swim through. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is good. But one thing kind of tainted the experience for me.. I understand the restrictions with the cameras, but the pricing for the photos is a bit predatory in my opinion. $25 for a single picture or $100 for them all? Perhaps if you cut that rate in half, you'd sell more than twice as much? It's just too much. Considering how much people paid to get to this place, only to be shaken down for actual evidence you were there, seems kind of offensive.
  • Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. This an experience you have to do. Only down side is you can't take your own camera/ phone. They do have someone taking picture but the cost and packages they give seem a bit too high.
  • Great excursion fabulous underground river. Ask for Nunes to be your guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly, excellent lunch afterward. Worth the trip..
  • It was a great experience a very wonderful place to visit, however our guide wasn't very talkative and she didn't explain much... We loved the experience, but to be honest, we were sad to hear the prices for the pictures. Most of our group didn't take them because it was too expensive. 30USD for all pictures would've been fine, but 60USD? Way too expensive...

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
