I recommend that attraction for the people who like something unusual and unforgettable. I visited different caves in my life in Europe and in US but that excursion was special. All other places I had visited (Abkhazia, Slovakia, Upstate NY, etc.), were commercial tours with lights, subways, boats, stairs and ladders, etc. There were big groups of people and the... More

We both enjoyed all the strange formations that Rio offered, it was challenging at times but our guide Hugo was very helpful and knew the best route to take and made the exercise more like a wet walk in the park. You swim, walk/hike and float in an amazing eco-system!! Would go again on future trip!!!!

This half day visit is really well done. They give you a shower, a wet suit, a life jacket and beach shoes for the coral ground you have to walk on. Everything is washed and cleaned. You get your own guide to take you through the underground passageways and rivers. The guide was really knowledgeable and very wonderful. I loved... More

It was safe and fascinating.The particular route depends on the water level that depends whether it rained in the last few days. Nevertheless I enjoyed it very much.

Great guide ( Juan), very special place with exceptional sights. The only thing that would have made this a five star experience is if they didn't charge $99 US for about a dozen pictures and since no cameras are allowed you feel you have to buy the photo package, to have at least a couple of pictures. A little steep... More

We took this tour as an excursion off of our RCCL cruise and it was so worth it! I was a little nervous at first that it might be too much for our 7 year old daughter being an 8 hour excursion, but she LOVED it and so did we! Our tour guide was amazing and knowledgeable, and was exceptional... More
