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 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.

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.

Chose this excursion over the ruins of Tulum. Sign-up agents were quick and told us what to expect. The ferry ride from Cozumel to PDC was rocky. Our tour guide Diana and her driver drove us from PDC to Dos Amores ranch. Smooth on the highway; but rocky on the 4 miles of uneven roads into the ranch. We were given wetsuits, water shoes and torchlights (+life jackets if reqd). Had a great underground experience looking at the natural formations and swimming through the water. Diana was a great guide and she clearly explained about the formations and the cultural beliefs of the mayans. She even helped non-natural swimmers to cross the deeper sections. The water in some places are dive-able deep and was a bit cool. While its dark inside, there are photo ops. After the caves, we were out to change and have a quick bite of local food. Overall, a wonderful experience. We're glad we did it. Great service by the Shore Excursions team and their partners on the ground.

We were looking for a "wow memorable excursion" and boy did this deliver. We were worried about getting there from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen and back in time to return to ship and was not an issue. Only negative with the tour not having a photo opportunity or taking and sending to us via email to capture memories. Mexican Lunch was a plus. Caves and tour guide was Awesome! Highly recommend.

Our family of 5 took a 10 minute taxi ride from the pier to our ferry where we were transported to the mainland. After a 45 ride, we quickly changed into wet suits and treked 1/4 mile to the cave entrance. Daniel was our driver and guide on this excursion. He was fantastic - easy to talk to, knowledgeable and personable. I think he enjoyed the caves as much as we did. The caves were a wonder! Lunch afterwards was delicious. What a great relaxing and fun way to spend the day. I highly recommend this excursion to others!!

The excursion was very well planned. The transportation arranged was easy, smooth, and painless. Our guide Gina was great and very knowledgeable. The meal prepared after the cavern was delicious and filling. The river itself was gorgeous and my boyfriend and I loved the opportunity to swim and experience absolute darkness. It was easy to get to the excursion and timelines were accurate.

Our family of six enjoyed this excursion so much! We definitely recommend this adventure, kids ages range 10-15.Our tour guide was knowledgeable, fun, accommodating and encouraging for the entire group. We all wore wetsuits and highly recommend them! The water was a cool 74 degrees but we were comfortable in the wetsuits. A really cool experience that you won’t forget!
