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.

Imelda was a fantastic guide! This was the most magical experience for me, my husband, and our four kids. Her knowledge was deep, and she kept all of us engaged and captivated for the entire duration of the trip. Thank you, Ime, for the best day ever and memories we will cherish from Rio Secreto! Ulysses was a GREAT photographer too! We never even knew he was there, he was quietly in the background taking amazing photos.

Amazing experience and guide. Absolutely recommend. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because they took amazing photos but then asked 99 dollars for them which is obviously very expensive. They could sell a lot more if they have a more reasonable price (maybe 20 dollars). It will be good for their business too.
