Full description
On this full-day tour you’ll leave from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel in the early morning. Travel to Tulum in a small group (20 people maximum) and get to know your archeological guide en route.

You’ll arrive in Tulum before the crowds, and have the opportunity to gaze out over the glinting Caribbean Sea from a clifftop perch. Follow your guide on an in-depth tour of the Tulum ruins, with access to parts of the ruins that traditional tours do not visit.

Learn about the ancient Mayan civilization that occupied this site, and about the political, commercial and military history of this important Mayan city. View the remains of elaborate murals, painted blue and red on stark white walls. Imagine what life must have been like for the ancient Mayans who occupied this city as far back as the 13th century.

Next, on departing Tulum, you'll head to Rio Secreto. During the drive your guide will review safety considerations and hand out equipment, including a hard hat with a lamp, a wetsuit, a life vest and water shoes.

Follow your guide into the underground cave to view the breathtaking crystal formations on both the ceiling and the floor. Walk along a path through the caves and wade or swim in the river itself. Marvel at the vibrant colors and dramatic mineral formations that lie hidden deep below the surface of the earth.

Exit the cave and take a shower at the Rio Secreto facility. Relax in a hammock in the nature preserve before boarding the bus for the return trip.
