  • The place as such is something impressive and travel is great in addition to the activities that make you can explore a cave with stunning natural formations then a bike ride to later perform abseiling and defend in another cave and finally the walk a projection master of lights in a third without doubt wonderful cave experience guide Diana is very good and very well dominates history always on the lookout for clarify your doubts! What isn't right is the abuse at expense of photographs which rises to the 95 dlls by scarce 15 photographs and if this add that they do not allow you to take your own photos of this very bad on this side! The Park is something to consider since you will have to spend lots of extra money!

  • We thought swim in a cenote, but actually it's an underground river; our Rodolfo guide's explanations were clear and interesting, the visit takes approximately 1 h 30 and there are 4 circuits(on ne croise pas d'autres groupes) small groups (about 10) activity perfect when it's beautiful month because we're underground and it takes only a half-day total for the activity and transport if you are close to the site (playa del carmen 20 minutes) meal served after the activity

  • Simply amazing but not for anyone who may be claustrophobic. Julian was a great guide, with exceptional English and knowledge of the caverns.  more »

  • I was very skeptical about doing this under ground cave activity. Especially, being 6 feet tall and a heavy guy. i read lot of reviews and finally decided to go. Our guide, Nadia was very knowledgeable. We did enjoy going through caves and swimming in the water. This activity does require a basic knowledge of swimming. One thing that could have been better was, that the group size was 9-10 people. So in instances where the guide was talking and walking, it was a little difficult to hear . Although, guide made every effort to rotate people in line so no one person is first always. Also, one fair disclaimer, there were pictures that rocks are shinning. That is if you are luck to have so much calcium deposits. We went in December and there was minimal reflection. Overall, I do recommend this adventure. They are very kid friendly too. Other groups with kids also had fun.
  • We just returned from our cruise and Rio secrets was the highlight!! By far the best excursion we have done with any cruise. Our guide Miguel was very funny and made us feel like family. You go really deep into the caves and explore the beautiful terrain. Definitely recommend taking a walking stick. I don't recommend this for guest who can't swim or guest who have problems with balance and claustrophobia. But for everyone else please make sure you book this excursion. Delicious food at the end of the trip. Professional photographer travels the caves with you if you are interested in taking home pictures.
  • Absolutely amazing tour. We took private tour, it was expansive, but it worth it! Also had private dinners. Our guide was Raul - he is fantastic! And super professional photographer! The best tour ever.
  • Fascinating, is the best word to describe Rio Secreto. We went on the Carnival Splendor and booked the Amazing Secret River excursion, it was worth every penny (ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen, bus ride upon arrival from ferry to the location and yummy lunch was all included) Upon arrival you must put all your belongings in a locker, keys and locks are provided at no additional cost, you must shower, put on your gear, wetsuits, watershoes, life vest and helmet with light (all included) - Ones you're ready a Mayan ritual takes place right before entering the cave. Our guide was Gonzo, his passion is contagious, he's friendly, extremely knowledgeable, he made the tour and our time at Rio Secreto great, he even walked us back to the bus, super attentive. I was speechless, Rio Secreto exceeded my expectations, the pictures are gorgeous but this is definitely a must see for yourself adventure.
  • A must go !!! Is truly a sacred experience to walk in the caves.. be aware this is more like an exploration of the caves with the help of a guide... but you are not going to be free swimming like in a cenote.. is a great deal for the price... includes admission, guide, wet suit and food... during the tour in the cave a photographer takes pictures that you can individually purchase or buy the CD...pay in pesos whenever you can...
