Amazing Underground River
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 the way 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.
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.

Hands down, best excursion ever! Breath taking, educational, and rememberable!!
We really enjoyed this unique experience. We got to walk through the water of one cave and swim into another deeper cavern. A representative from the company met us at the ferry terminal in Cozumel and made sure that we found our guide in Playa del Carmen. The van ride through the jungle was bumpy but interesting.

I've been to a lot of caves and caverns but I've never slogged through a river in a cave. Wow!!! The guide was very informative and knowledgeable and the experience was one-of-a-kind.

We didn't know what to expect on this excursion. Nobody we knew took it or heard of it. All I can say is Wow, It was a once in a life time experience. We been in many caverns before but this one was entirely different. There were no boats, lights or walkways. Just everything in its natural state. The only lights were those on our helmets. We had to walk in waist high water and low passages. Everything we needed to do this was provided, including a most wonderful tour guide whose name escapes me(Sorry he was French). We had a small group of only 8. The highlight was swimming in the cavern pool. If you can do this trip do it.
We recently did the secret river tour while on a seven day cruise. This was our favourite excursion, not only was it a nice small group of only 9 people, but the guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The location was gorgeous, what a great day we had! If you are looking for an adventure than this is the spot for you. Mix together a little science, beautiful surroundings and Stephen our Italian guide and you have perfection!
