  • This is the place that should be visited. I would say a "Must". We have the best memories from that place. I would recommend to book the trip over the phone, so you can save $100 bucks that later on can be spend on the pictures from that wonderful trip. Worth every penny. The only thing I would recommend to the company is to extend the tour a little bit longer, at least for the groups without the kids.
  • It was such a good tour!! I had the “Plus”, which includes biking, hiking, repelling and exploring a few caves in the area and learning a little bit of Mayan history. Very good, and would definitely recommend! Luis (Batman) was a very good guide with a humorous and charming personality. He made everyone feel like we were safe and the whole group enjoyed him. Very handsome as well, hehe. Amazing overall!
  • An amazing experience! Something like I have never seen and I’ve been to several caves in America. Can’t say enough good things about it!!! Our guide was Miguel he is extraordinary! He was fun and very knowledgeable. He did everything in Spanish and English. Helpful tip if you do the Plus wear long shorts and if you are out of shape take the truck!
  • What a great experience! This tour is well executed from start to finish. We were met at the pier by Sergio & Leo who took great care of us all day. A short walk to the comfortable van is followed by a ride of about 30 minutes to get to the caves (a little bumpy, but not bad at all. "Mayan Massage"). When we arrived at Río Secreto, we were met by our cave guide Ricardo. He was great at making us feel ready for the caves & making sure we had everything we needed. (Note: everything you'll need is provided, you just need to bring your own swimsuit). Ricardo has an extensive working knowledge of the cave system, & will happy explain how everything works together to create a unique ecosystem. This was an absolutely fantastic tour, & I would love to experience this again! Things to remember: - The pictures are expensive, but the proceeds go to helping conserve the jungle environment where these caves are located, as well as to ensure the purity of the aquifer on which the whole area depends. You will not be able to bring any electronics (or anything, really) into the caves. - Bring cash for tips! The best way you can show appreciation to your guides and drivers is with a smile, a "thank you," & a bit of cash in hand. - They will ask if anyone is claustrophobic. While the spaces in the caves are enclosed, they are large spaces with plenty of space to move around. I never once felt confined, & even if you do, there are extra photographers with your tour that can guide you out. Relax & enjoy!
  • This was an excellent experience and made my dream to swim in a cave come true. Wonderful rock formations combined with clear, fresh water in drinking quality made this a very unique cave tour. Our tour guide, Ana, was very knowledgeable, friendly and could speak English and French. This is definitely a must do experience when you are in Cancun. The "jungle" surrounding the cave system was a bit disappointing.
