Full description
Your tour will begin as you arrive to the Tulum Ruins, where your guide will provide you with approximately 40 minutes of information about the area, as well as some instructions about the tour. You will then be able to enjoy almost 1 hour of free time, before advancing to Río Secreto.

You will then arrive to Río Secreto’s reception and service areas where you will watch a welcome video, before being transported to the reserve. When arriving to the reserve, a guide will provide you with safety measures, as well as all of the necessary equipment. Before entering the Mayan underworld, you will tour around the paths of the nature reserve, where you will receive a Mayan welcome. You will then walk and swim through beautiful natural crystal galleries, throughout a 1-kilometer tour which will take approximately 1.5 hours.

Following your subterranean experience, you will return your equipment before making a toast with Xtabentun whilst looking at pictures from the tour. Finally, you will savor a regional buffet accompanied by naturally-flavored water, before returning to the reception for transportation back to your hotel.
