Tour Details

After a scenic 45-minute ferry ride to Playa del Carmen from Cozumel, you will board your ground transportation to this awe-inspiring cave system. Be entertained along your scenic one hour drive, with fun and educational facts from your guide who will explain the specific and very interesting facts of the amazing natural wonder you are about to see.

Once in the heart of the jungle, you won't believe your eyes when you arrive to admire the incredible structures that took around 65 million years to form. This ancient, underwater cave system tour is perfect for adrenaline junkies and those who love nature.

First on your Cozumel excursion, discover these amazing caves on a walking exploration while learning all about the stalagmites and stalactites that have formed over a vast period of time. Then, jump into the fresh crystalline water and swim through the chambers connected by long, incredibly beautiful, low ceiling caves. You'll enjoy an hour and a half of exploration time in the dry caverns and the underground river discovery.

This is a true work of art courtesy of Mother Nature and was considered by the ancient Mayan civilization as a sacred place used by priests and warriors for important rituals.

After this unforgettable excursion in Cozumel, you will return to your transportation where you will enjoy a delicious light snack while traveling back to Playa del Carmen, where you will catch the ferry for the return ride to Cozumel.

If you enjoy exploring places that are off the beaten path, then this Cozumel tour is a must-do! Reserve your spot now and get ready to experience a side of Mexico that very few people are fortunate to visit.

We really enjoyed the cave. The ride there on the ferry and van was a little long and rough, but the experience at the cave was great. The kids loved swimming through the caves and there was even a place to do cliff jumping (8-10 foot drop). The guide was great and made everyone feel safe. An authentic Mexican lunch was served after the time in the cave. This was my son's favorite excursion.

Truly "Amazing" a one of a kind tour! Beautiful and tranquil. The difficulty level made me a little nervous, as I've had a torn meniscus the last few years and can have some knee pain, but I didn't want to miss this opportunity. It wasn't quite as hard as you might think. There was some climbing, some crouching to walk through low ceiling areas, you had to be aware of where you step and watch for some sharper edges on rock formations. The distances to swim were not too far, maybe similar to swimming across a pool (20 feet tops) then you walk again. Our tour guide Pablo did a fantastic job and was very knowledgeable about the natural formations and scientific aspects. The light lunch and tea were much appreciated, as well as the hospitality. Would highly recommend this adventure!
