Traveler Reviews

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Playa del Carmen. Our tour guide Olek Sanders, was very informational and spoke god English. They split groups into English speaking and Spanish speaking making it easier for everyone taking the tours. The caves were awesome and so was the swimming. You wear life jackets so you don't have to be a strong swimmer. There was some hiking and the path in the cave is uneven so this is a physical activity but overall moderate for most people to be able to complete the tour. You are not allowed to take your own camera and the pictures are expensive but this truly is an experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend everyone try this activity.

My family thought this was a great tour. It takes some time to get logistics together when you first arrive, but after that it was very memorable. Our guide (Fillipe) had a great since of Humor and did an awesome job keeping us separate from other groups in the cave. I enjoyed the tradition of the blessing entering the cave (even if it is just for show) and the ceremonial "shot" after leaving. Would highly recommend.

One of the most awesome experiences you can have! We have done this three times over the past few years and continue to be thrilled. Only issue was with the tour company that could not get our pick up time and place established correctly. With a bunch of back and forth emails it was finally resolved but sure left a sour taste in our mouths for this particular tour company!

I am living in Playa Del Carmen for a year. I booked a tour to the Rio Secreto Nature Reserve. My first disappointment was that they would not pick me up from my condo. Nevertheless I decided to go anyway because I could go to the closest hotel. However, I wasn't told that when the hotel is in Playacar I could not pass the entrance gate to the compound. I had to stand in the rain outside the gate and get the drivers attention.

Okay after arriving at the reserve we took a shower, suited up in a wetsuit, shoes, helmet and walking cane. In order to get to the cave we needed to run through the forest as fast as we could to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. Of course that was impossible. My legs back and arms got bitten the worse. The same thing happened going back. The luncheon food was very bland and not enough variety of food.

Except for those unforeseen thing the tour was incredible.

FABULOUS tour. They provide you with everything you need - helmets with lights on them, wetsuits, water shoes, life jackets, and walking sticks. The underground caves are INCREDIBLE! You must hike a little bit to get to the caves, and also hike and walk in sometimes waist deep water and sometimes you have to swim a short distance. We are a couple in our mid sixties and it was easy to do. Certainly not over-challenging such that anyone should worry that they are not fit enough to do this tour. At the end of the tour they give you a shot of some kind of native alcoholic beverage and then a full Mexican buffet under a pavilion. AWESOME experience. I would highly recommend it. I agree with others that it is a shame what they charge for photos ridiculous amounts of money and they don't let you take any cameras or cellphones into the caves.
