Explore the fascinating Rio Secreto, a natural wonder of the Yucatan peninsula. Secluded from the crowds, this underground passage represents part of the Mayan underworld. The secret of this aquatic system is its mystical character where peace and tranquility have a different meaning. You will be able to experience unforgettable moments of connection and introspection.
A local expert tour guide will help you navigate the mostly waist-high waters as you wade and swim across the river through a cavern made up of whimsical shapes of stalactites and stalagmites.

Rio secreto with Driss
Driss was amazing and very knowledgeable. Cared deeply about the caves / environment and making sure we had a great time.
It was amazing! Our tour guide Priscilla was amazing, sweet, funny and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend.
I went in one person and emerged someone completely different. I was with a group celebrating our friend's 50th birthday and we took a private tour with our guide Miguel who was knowledgable, hilarious, kind and everything you would want in a guide. I am group minded but admit that I am terrified of the water and so swimming in an underground river was not my first choice for an excursion. But armed with my wetsuit, hardhat and life vest and my ladies by my side, I did it, I swam in an underground river. It was clear, it was cool, and it was magical. When we all turned off our headlamps I felt a sense of peace I'd never felt. I left all of my fears and worries down in the cave and none of us wanted to leave. We could have spent days in the cave. Truly a magical experience and one I would share with everyone I love. On my Top 5 experiences of everywhere I've ever traveled.
Amazing experience. Even better care
What an experience. This is a must! The guide Ismelda was amazing and well knowledgeable. She made the experience a thousand times better. And Jericó, he was an angel, after I left my phone in the bus he ran go get it and brought it back before the boat left. They where all so kind and the experience was unreal.
Absolutely fantastic experience! Our guide Amber spoke fluent English and was fun and knowledgeable. When the water shoes I brought ripped, she insisted on giving me hers and she went barefoot through the cave. What a sacrifice!
Know that walking in the cave is strenuous, uneven and can be difficult.
Food was great.
