  • Be prepared as it can get dark but just a head torch to guide you through the caves I think it makes the views that extra special. 1000's of years of stalagmites and stalactites will leave you speechl...  read more »
  • I love it because it is u place committed to conservation, not as other parks that profit with animals. The caves are breathtaking and you stay with the beautiful feeling of having discovered something magical.

  • Amazing underground caves and a precious memory find! This is something I hope is preserved by my environmentalists and is certainly a "must see". It is absolutely amazing what was forming underground...  read more »
  • Outstanding adventure,beautiful and spiritual place ,we felt good knowing that each dollar spent for fotos contributes to the Natural Reserve to help preserve the local flora and fauna.Nunez was our guide,seems like he loves his job, great personality, always trying to insure the group was safe.Thank you Nunez Bob and Ami from Los Angeles!!!!!!
  • Fantastic experience if you don't mind getting wet. Basically it's spelunking through a cave system that is partially underwater. Our guide was really great, you could tell he loved his job (partly because he kept saying it, but easy to believe :-) You walk/float through water that goes from ankle deep to over 20ft. They provide life vests, water shoes and food is available after. The caves are pretty but with a natural beauty, for the most part it's just limestone with stalagmites and stalactites with the occasional ancient cave-in.
  • The depths of Rio Secreto is amazing. Our group was taken aback by the sights inside. From the pristine water to the caves dating back hundreds and hundreds of years! I don't think the wet suit was necessary. However, save yourself the hassle and purchase some water shoes before visiting this attraction (though they are provided if needed). You will find yourself maneuvering over sharp objects on the floor of the caves. Also the 'Walking Stick' is a MUST!!! Most of all have fun!!!
  • Very nice. Enjoyed the experience truely beautiful. The only down side is they charge too much for pictures. 25$ for a single 60$ for A CD with 8 pics. Quality of pics not great. My have for pictures if price was 30$ like we were told when we booked your...
  • A new twist with underground water and stalactites (5/5). Unfortunately hugely overpriced with mediocre facilities (1/5). Net 3/5 overall for me. ps - They prohibit you from bringing an underwater camera, and then try to charge you a ridiculous USD$25 per photo they took for you in there...
