Absolutely amazing! A must see!
Sep 2021 • Friends
This was an absolutely incredible experience. We booked the half day tour, which included a tour of Rio Secreto and lunch. Our tour guide, Aaron, was incredible. He made sure that everyone in the group was comfortable at all times, and was incredibly knowledgeable about the nature reserve. The caves are amazing and absolutely worth seeing.

The lunch provided was buffet style and none of the food was great. That said, is was nice to have a little something to eat before getting back on the shuttle to our hotel. We were staying in Cancun and it was about an hour drive.

The best tour.

This was the best excursion I've done. The caves and rivers are beautiful, and Karina did a great job showing us all the coolest stuff. I will do this tour every time I am in Playa.

Not your normal swimming hole
Aug 2021
This was so much fun! We will for sure do this again. The whole thing was so well organized that we felt zero stress and could take it all in.
Next time tip: There's a drive from where you sign wavers to gearing up and hiking in and it's a bit rough and anyone prone to motion sickness might want to take precautions.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. My husband & I took our three children ages, 9,8 and 5, plus my 70 yr old mom. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

***I purchased all the photos for $100, but have not been able to get these yet. If someone from the trip would contact me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Spelunking and swimming!
Aug 2021 • Friends
What fun! Hiking through the jungle to the cave entrance and then in to the underworld. This a serious hike. 2 miles, slippery and uneven but well worth it. The coolness of the air and water were a divine contrast to the summer heat. Our guide Jorge is a biologist and was very educated on the cave. He was also very entertaining! Highly recommend this tour for those seeking a real adventure unlike most you’ll find here in the Riveria Maya.

Best cenote!
Amazing! Unbelievable! Coolest thing ever! Alondra was our tour guide. Ive been to a lot of different places and I must say I've never had a tour guide who cares so much about the people she was with all day. She was so smart and attentive, that it just made everything that much more awesome.

Tour. 10/10

Alondra our guide. 20/10

Must go here!

Rio Secreto/ Tulum experience was amazing
Aug 2021 • Couples
Rio secreto/Tulum was an amazing experience. The ancient ruins were a sight worth seeing and the little shops were awesome as well. The cenotes were amazing also. I truly enjoyed this experience. Our tour guide Edgar was fantastic, he was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He really knew how to keep everyone’s attention and share his knowledge with everyone. Highly recommend this experience and Edgar!

Alondra is the best guide!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Absolutely fantastic! We loved our tour guide! She was amazing. I believe her name was Alondra. But more than that, she helped us feel safe in what was a very surreal and possibly frightening experience. Instead, it wasn’t frightening at all, it was simply amazing. Once in a lifetime must for everyone!!
