Full description

Immerse yourself in an ancient world of stalactites and stalagmites with a visit to Rio Secret in Playa del Carmen. Roam the labyrinths of dramatic rock formations and tranquil waters in this hidden underground network of rivers and caves.

Upon arriving at Rio Secreto, meet your guide and receive a wetsuit, wet shoes, a lamp, and a helmet to get ready for the adventure. Then enter the caves, where you have 1968 feet (600 meters) free to walk, swim, and enjoy the enchanting beauty of your surroundings. 

After approximately 1.5 hours, you will be taken back to ground level and treated to a light lunch of delicious local food. Choose the green salsa if your taste buds like it hot.

This is a chance for you to relax in the serene jungle habitat and reflect upon your experience in the caves. Next, you may wash and change before heading back to your hotel.

This was our favorite part of our trip. Our guide (Ari) was phenomenal. he was very knowledgeable and conducted the tour in both English and Spanish. The caves are so beautiful. I would say it's moderately difficult. There was an older couple (70s) on the tour and they slipped a few times but made it through unhurt and enjoyed their time.

An incredible experience for all ages. We were ages 10, 36 and 65 and everyone appreciated it just as much. Just far, no dead time or too much and extended information. Right on! There is nothing to comment on. Professional from start to finish and our guide Paulina was absolutely superb! So genuine, knowledgeable, funny and accommodating and caring.
