Upon arrival at the welcome and service area of Rio Secreto, enjoy a briefing and video. Then, board a van to the natural reserve, approximately 15-minutes away from the welcome area, and get ready to have an incredible and unique experience.
Your 'Rio Secreto Plus' ticket will give you access to the traditional Rio Secreto tour and the new and unique Dry Route. Upon arrival to the reserve, the guides will greet you and give you the security measures and suitable equipment. From there, you'll enjoy a bike tour and a rappel activity exploring the amazing rock formations. Then, get ready to explore Xibalbá (the Mayan underworld). Prior to entry into this world, you will have the chance to tour the natural reserve trails where you will receive a Mayan Welcome.
Your tour continues with a 0.6-mile hike and swim through the reserve's beautiful natural glass galleries. This portion lasts for about 1.5 hours. Return all the equipment and get ready to toast with Xtabentun and then enjoy a delicious regional buffet lunch and non-alcoholic drinks.
Finally, get ready for the most unique portion that this 'plus' ticket will give you: a guided tour to the spectacular dry route “Salón de la Paz” (Room of Peace). On this route, you will witness an incredible 1-hour light and sound show which is projected inside the caverns and on the natural rock formations. You'll feel transported back in time to the creation and evolution of the universe and have a wonderful time. After the show, you'll have a 25-minute guided walk among the interpretive trails of Mayan cosmovision and the region’s animal and plant life.

It was beautiful, interesting and fun! What we loved most about it was the variety of activities caving, bike riding, repealing into the ceneote, and swimming through the the cave. Would definitely recommend the 'Plus' option! Everything was well maintained, professionally handled, and both culturally and ecologically sensitive. Tip: when they offer you a walking stick for cave walking take it. I have a bad knee so I took it as a procaution, but most the people who didn't take one wished they had. The floor of the cave is uneven but it can be hard to see under the water so the walking stick helps you know what's coming.
I enjoy learning new things....and we saw a fascinating new creature which is a cross between a spider and a scorpion. Our guide explained it was harmless and blind. Apparently all creatures that live in the caves ' see ' by using their long antennae to feel vibration in the pitch blackness of the cave.
Our guide was great. The groups are small so you get to know each other. In the cave it helps if you work as a team. It was everything I would want in a day trip!
This was an amazing experience! Alandra, our tour guide was great. She had such an in depth knowledge of the background of the Rio Secreto. Being in the water in this underground river for such an extended time wading and swimming among the stalagmites and stalagtights looking at the wonders God created underground was fantastic. A must experience tour.
This tour was amazing , our gide Raul ,was great and the rio secrets was one of a kind experience . Most do if your in cancun.
This adventure was very cool, we spent some time in the dry caves as you were not in the water and then changed into our wet suites and we were off on a little tour to the caves were we learned a little of the history of the Mayan culture, once we were in the caves it was very exciting and beautiful as the color of the water and the reflections off the ceiling were amazing, we then went on a short mountain bike ride, to another part of the caves were we repelled down a small crevice down about 50 feet into a large cavern were we hiked out and had lunch. Our guide was Lara and she was very knowledgable of the history of the Mayan culture and the structures and materials in the caves as well as a great sense of humor.
