We loved Benito! He was a wealth of information! The terrain is a bit intense, so I used a walking stick and it saved me several times. Next time we are back in the area, we will do the tour again but a different part of the cave system. It was THAT cool! Score: Recommend: YES Aug 1, 2018

The tour was amazing Score: Recommend: YES Jul 12, 2017
The only complaint I have is that the constant photography was distracting to say the least. You are trying to maneuver through the water and you have the photographer constantly asking you to pose. I would definitely make my feeling known about no photography if I venture into another cenote since it was very intrusive while you are trying to enjoy the experience.

This was a great experience made even better by the fact that we had a very knowledgeable guide, Benito. Score: Recommend: YES Mar 1, 2016
The guide was GREAT and helped me immensely as I had difficulty with the walk. Frankly, it was too strenuous for me. I've swam in cenote caves before without a life jacket, which I can handle but the trek with the rocks was beyond my capacity. Score: Recommend: NO Feb 4, 2016
Definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. Our guide was knowledgeable, witty and made the experience memorable. Score: Recommend: YES Aug 29, 2015

It's a must do excursion when visiting Cancun. Loved it! Score: Recommend: YES Sep 10, 2014
Totally amazing! Our guide, Epco, was very knowledgeable and super friendly! When you first get there you watch a video in your preferred language and then they give you a guide that speaks your language which makes it much more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this activity and we want to return ourselves soon! Score: Recommend: YES Jan 23, 2014
I have been to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico,which is a lot bigger than Rio Secreto,but you walk on a paved path and everything is well illuminated.Rio Secreto is just the opposite.No path,hardly any illumination.You truly feel the adventure of being in a cave.It was also exciting to see bats and a cave spider.Lunch was a buffet which also had enough vegetarian options and we got to taste the "ixtabentun",an anis flavored liquor.This was one of my best tours out of Cancun.
