Whether you are an adventure traveler or a curious one, we assure you this park will amaze you with one of the most intriguing natural attractions in the Riviera Maya.

As a nature reserve, this park is the best way to go if you want to experience eco-tourism, as it is based on the proper use of environmental practices to safeguard the conservation of the region’s water. Immerse yourself in the most exotic underground world within the Yucatán Península and experience the winner of 2015 World Travel Awards. Visiting this Mexican eco-park will make you feel transformed in ways you’ve never imagined. Let the stalactites, stalagmites and the crystal clear waters of Río Secreto guide you to the grounds of eco-tourism!

Discover the Beauty of the Mayan Underworld

On your expedition to Río Secreto, you will be able to swim and walk an underground world for 90 minutes through crystalline waters, where silence becomes an unexpected pleasingly surprise. You will walk among 600 meters / 656 yards of breathtaking rock formations composed of stalactites and stalagmites within the nature reserve.

Stalactites and stalagmites are made of calcium carbonate and are formed when the rain deposited in the ground filters through the limestone. Every drop that filters allow the rather slow growth of these formations, registers show that over the course of three months, some stalactites grew HALF A MILLIMETER! Whereas some others grew 60 cm after 360 thousand years!

Enjoy the Deep Waters of Río Secreto!

The karst system of Río Secreto connects to more than 400 km / 248.5 miles of underground rivers! And experts say this system is over 5 million years old! There are almost 30 persons that guide visitors. Each guide takes groups of 10 person max because they are in charge of guiding people about the importance of this ecosystem, while at the same time supervising in a specific way that nobody extracts a single piece of the place. There are some areas in the system that can reach up to 120 m deep but, the public areas are no more than 5 meters deep.

Immerse yourself in the Yucatan Peninsula's most exotic underground world. Hike and swim through a labyrinth of a cool underground river while surrounded by crystal formations.

  • IMPORTANT : We have the right to cancel or exchange any portion of this tour due to weather, availability, road construction or any other reason without notice. We always try to provide the exact service above however, there are times it is out of our control. We will offer other "parks/activities" near the area if something is closed. If you decide not take any other option or if none is available we will charge you the web site price for the services that you were able to do. Example; if you have Tulum and a snorkeling trip planned, you cannot snorkel; we will charge you as if you only went to Tulum. The most expensive part of this trip is the van, gas and driver for the day.
