We decided to book the Amazing Secret River tour. WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE EXCURSION!!! If you have the opportunity to take this excursion, do it! You will definitely love this tour. You are ferried to Playa Del Carmen on the mainland, and then transported to the site. It's a bit of a slow, rough ride to the location, due to the fact that the roads cannot be paved above the underground caverns. You'll don a short wetsuit, aqua shoes, and a cave explorer's helmet, and then set off into the caverns. Crystal clear water, unbelievable formations, and great fun! The tour has a paid photographer that takes every one's pictures along the way, since they don't allow you to bring your own camera for your safety. The packages are a little on the expensive side, but the memories are worth it.

Excellent excursion! We rode the ferry over to Playa de Carmen, boarded a van for the drive out to the Rio Secreto compound and then ventured down to the caverns which were discovered in 2006. The caverns have to board walks, so we were outfitted with wet suit, life jacket, wet socks and lighted helmet for the 1 1/2 hour journey through the caverns. Some areas require wading through, some swimming, some ducking and crouching to get through certain area but it was an awesome privilege to be one of the first to ever tour through the caverns! After a delicious local lunch, photos were available for purchase and we were taken back to our ship with the memory of a lifetime!

Amazing Secret River - walking through cavern in a fresh water river. Was a lot of fun, not very difficult. Having seen it once I wouldn't pay to see it again, but it was worth the price.

Excellent excursion. Must be able to step up and down rocks and crouch down. No weight limit listed on website but there is one on the on-board paperwork. Had argument with excursion desk about difference in requirements but it was clarified with operator and their was not an issue. Worst part of excursion is just getting there and back. 30-45 minute ferry ride to mainland then 45 min bus ride on rough road. Rough seas going to mainland and storm heading back made many ferry riders seasick. Yet, ferry crew was still pushing tequila shots and beer. Would have given excursion a 5+ otherwise.

A "Bucket List" experience. Newly discovered underground river. Got to hike and swim though the caverns. The formations were incredible. Nice guides. Can't take your own photos, and must buy photos from them, but we happily did buy the CD. Lunch was provided. The ferry to the mainland is fast and bouncy and rough. Make sure you take something if you are prone to motion sickness.
