Río Secreto ~ The Best “Green” Attraction in Mexico (Responsible Tourism) / by JD Andrews

On a recent trip to Mexico, I had the opportunity to experience one of the most memorable "tours" I've ever been on. It was more like an expedition, a transformative journey deep inside the earth.

"Río Secreto is near Playa del Carmen, you will observe natural history dating back millions of years as you hike and swim through a 600-meter route full of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Go deep inside an underground cave, where you’ll experience true silence among some of the most dramatic mineral formations in the world."

"For the 2nd consecutive year the Río Secreto nature reserve received the majority vote from thousands of tourism industry professionals and consumers, considering it to be the best “expedition” or “green attraction” in the recent awards ceremony of the World Travel Awards for the Americas (U.S.A and Canada, Mexico and Central America, the Caribbean and South America)"
