Hello, friends! Each year thousands of tourists flock to Mexico to enjoy the countries rich history and stunning beaches.  If you're a cruise goer, chances are you'll visit Mexico as one of your ports.  In fact, in the last 10 years I have visited Mexico 5 times!  During my visits I have experienced some pretty incredible things, from relaxing catamaran rides to thrilling snorkeling trips and visits to Mayan ruins.  During my last trip, I stumbled on something pretty remarkable.  A little place called Rio Secreto.

Rio Secreto was accidentally discovered by a farm in 2005.  The farmer was chasing an iguana when he found a cave.  Upon entering the cave, he found an incredible underground river.  The mouth of the cave opens up to several different rooms, a few of which are open for tours.  Rio Secreto is a preservation site, so the tours are closely monitored and limited to a few groups each day.

Your guide will lead your group through the cave.  Some parts of the river are merely ankle deep where as other parts are deep enough to require swimming.  A majority of the cave is extremely open however, there are a few sections of the cave that are very narrow.  

 

Rio Secreto is one of Mexico's best kept secrets!  It is located in Playa del Carmen and is easily accessible from Cozumel.    I guarantee you won't regret visiting this stunning site on your next trip to Mexico.  The guides are not only very friendly, but they are extremely knowledgeable about the area's history.  The will help make this an experience one that you'll remember for a lifetime!
