If you are on holiday in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, Río Secreto will be a spectacular day trip for you and your family. The discovery of Río Secreto, previously known as Pool Tunich, has brought much excitement to the State of Quintana Roo, Mexico. This system of caves, formed over centuries by an underground river, is located only a few miles from Playa del Carmen. It is by far the longest partially flooded cave in the Yucatan Peninsula, but what makes Río Secreto even more special is the fact that it is semi-sunken.
Río Secreto has more than 12 Km (7.5 miles) of semi-sunken cave mapped out with 15 natural outlets located in different areas. There's nothing else like it!
Imagine finding a hole in the ground and lowering yourself into the unknown, where you uncover a breathtaking underground world untouched for thousands of years. That is truly how this underground river system was first discovered. Before 2007, almost no one had entered Río Secreto, except for the man who first found it. Since then, it has become a protected natural reserve where you can safely explore the Yucatan Peninsula's most awe-inspiring underground universe. And it is very close to Cancun and all the magical spots along the Riviera Maya, making a perfect tour during your vacations.
Keep in mind, this exotic and fragile geological formation requires an incredible amount of eco-awareness and sensitivity. We limit the size of tour groups to minimize impact on the cave. This will ensure that many generations get to see our planet's natural history carved in mineral substances. A journey through Río Secreto is surreal, mystical and memorable. Whether you are an adventurer, world traveler, or simply a curious soul, we welcome you to experience one of the most intriguing natural attractions during your holidays in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
