Begin with pickup at your Cancun hotel, then make the trip to Rio Secreto entrance near Playa del Carmen. Map out your journey through the cave with an experienced cave guide, deciding on the degree of difficulty, and creating the ideal route for your interests.
Suit up in a wetsuit, life vest, caving helmet, and snorkel, then descend into the underground river. See stalactites and stalagmites formed by centuries of moving water, moving at your own pace through the gentle current. The ancient Maya believed that underwater rivers and caves were gateways to the underworld—when you’re deep in the cave, pause to turn off your lights and experience complete darkness. Stop as often as you wish to enjoy the otherworldly terrain, or ask the accompanying photographer to capture photographs.
At the end of your time in the cave, return to the surface for a gourmet lunch. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase souvenir photos, if desired, before returning to Cancun. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
