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 to Rio Secreto, you will meet your guide and receive a wetsuit, wet shoes, a lamp, and a helmet to get you ready for your adventure. Then enter the caves, where you will have 1968 feet (600 meters) free for walking, swimming, and enjoying the enchanting beauty of your surroundings.

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.

Nice trip to the cave with nice company

The cave was interesting. The swimming very comfortable .. Ana as a guide very friendly and the other participants very nice. The tour was conducted bilingually (French and English). $ 79 is a little more expensive. The photos at the end for $ 25 (for one !!) and $ 99 for several are extremely exaggerated.
