What to Expect
Get picked up at your Cancun or Playa Mujeres hotel, or choose to meet directly at the Rio Secreto Nature Preserve.

At the preserve, listen to your guide give a safety briefing. Don your equipment, including a hard hat, lamp, wet suit, life vest, and water shoes.

Head underground with your guide and make your way past the floor and ceiling crystal formations. Walk along the designated path or swim and wade through the underground river. Move along with the river, and view the colors and mineral forms that lie all around it.

Exit the cave and opt for a shower. Enjoy a buffet lunch and spend some time exploring the nature preserve or relaxing. Finish the tour with a ride back to your hotel or Plaza Kukulcan.

This is one of the best caves I have ever been in. The tour is wonderful, and our guide was fantastic.

Great trip but be cautious on transportation arrangements

This is a very worthwhile trip to take while in Cancun and the staff there are excellent A word of caution: We booked an 8:30 AM trip on a Saturday. Evidently, this is a busy time. We were not picked up by a Rio Secreto...More

Super cool place to go

Mateo was our guide on the "Happiness" trail through the underground paths and cenotes. The scenery below ground was beyond beautiful. The only negative: you cannot take your own photos and the "package" to buy them is really expensive.

Beautiful and Enchanting

Benito is the best guide there! We have gone several times and taken many people to see this natural wonder. If you are ever in the area, don't miss it! It was worth every penny we spent going there.
