This tour is one of the best I've done in the world! Accessible to the majority since you walk and swim (or float with your vest) in the underground river of the FABULOUS Rio Secreto Caves. The road to get there is a quite bumby since very remote but the tour is well organized

My tour began with a visit to the Mayan Tolum ruins and a informed guided tour of this spectacular coastal Mayan ruins. So much is well preserved here one feels the way life must have been in this beautiful place. Then we were in a shuttle to the Rio Secreto caves 15 minutes
