Experience description

Discovered only in 2006, this hidden world known as Rio Secreto is a semi-sunken cave system stretching nearly 30km, the longest in the Yucatan Peninsula. Before 2007 virtually no-one had visited it, and even today only small groups pass through, to preserve the intimacy and mystery of this unique experience. You’ll be kitted out with wetsuit and safety equipment, then led by your experienced guide through the caves, sometimes walking, sometimes swimming.

This subterranean land is beautiful, calm and at times eerie, but you’ll have a lamp to illuminate the fragile mineral formations that hold secrets to our planet’s history. After you emerge into daylight again, you’ll enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch in the jungle, take a shower and relax in hammocks before heading back to your hotel.

The Rio Secreto experience was unbelievable. Had never done that before.

Anna Lysakowska

I liked the tour, the place was amazing. The only downside was that we were forbidden to take any cameras and buying some photos from a professional photographer inside was an extra $60.


Our Rio Secreto experience was awesome and our guide Francesca was great and very informative. We would do this again!
