Discover an underground world at Rio Secreto

 Rio Secreto underground caves

Some eco-tours will take you on an exploration of what exists in the rainforest–the beauty in the landscape, in the trees, or on the water–but what about under the Earth? The Rio Secreto in the Yucatan Peninsula holds some spectacular secrets. But in order to uncover those secrets you have to follow the winding river where it flows.

Your reward is spectacular caves decorated with stalagtites, stalagmites, helictites, dropstones, flowstones and columns. Part of the Riviera Maya, the underground river is the longest and most spectacular of the region. Admire these stunning geological structures that surround you as you dive in numerous pools of crystal clear water. These crystalline pools provide more than 400 feet of straight line visibility. Sunlight streams in through several entrances creating a truly magical effect.

Rio Secreto is a unique place in the world and one that isn’t explored often. That is because until recently the cavern systems in the Riviera Maya where the Rio Secreto runs have been flooded and accessible only to a few specialized cave divers. These days anyone can explore these special geological characteristics that are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula.

 Rio Secreto

The Riviera Maya stretches along the coastline of the Carribbean Sea of the Yucatan Peninsula for 72 miles. Located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo the Riviera Maya begins south of the Cancun International Airport and ends at Punta Allen, a small fishing village within the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.

Costa Rica canopy toursSometimes there’s a place that is so amazing you can’t take it all in from the ground. You’ve got to see it from the sky. That’s where Titi Canopy Tours comes in. You’ll be flying high when you take a Titi Canopy Tours zip line tour. Experience primary and secondary rainforest canopy in a unique way, with your feet dangling, your heart racing and sights and sounds of the jungle filling your ears.

Gather your courage and take a ride on a zip line. Titi Canopy Tours has state-of-the-art equipment and a first rate safety record, so you can feel confident you’ll be in good hands. Keeping this in mind, you’ll have the chance to strap yourself into a zip line and experience the exhilarating thrill of flying from treetop to treetop reaching up to 450 meters. It’s a scary thought to be sure, but for the adventurous, it’s also a bit exciting, and probably the best view of the jungle.

Titi Canopy Tours will take you on a 2-hour guided journey through the rainforest canopy on a series of 12 zip line cables. On your way, you’ll see Titi monkeys, two and three toed sloths, poison dart frogs, iguanas and toucans, not to mention the beautiful valley and unspoiled rainforest.

When you need a break, rest a bit in a bungalow high on a hilltop while taking in the views. Or, take a nature walk to learn about the inhabitants that exist in the Costa Rican rainforest and visit the butterfly garden on the Titi Canopy grounds. The whole tour takes place just minutes away from Manuel Antonio and Quepos.

Other nearby activities include surfing, waterfall repelling, bird watching, ocean kayaking and just about any other activity that takes advantage of the opportunity to be among the most incredible flora and fauna around.
