Amazing Secret River Cave Tour in Cozumel, Mexico

After a scenic 45-minute ferry ride to Playa del Carmen from Cozumel, you will board your ground transportation to this awe-inspiring cave system. Be entertained along your scenic one hour drive, with fun and educational facts from your guide who will explain the specific and very interesting facts of the amazing natural wonder you are about to see.

Once in the heart of the jungle, you won't believe your eyes when you arrive to admire the incredible structures that took around 65 million years to form. This ancient, underwater cave system tour is perfect for adrenaline junkies and those who love nature.

First on your Cozumel cave tour, discover these amazing caves on a walking exploration while learning all about the stalagmites and stalactites that have formed over a vast period of time. Then, jump into the fresh crystalline water and swim through the chambers connected by long, incredibly beautiful, low ceiling caves. You'll enjoy an hour and a half of exploration time in the dry caverns and the underground river discovery.

This is a true work of art courtesy of Mother Nature and was considered by the ancient Mayan civilization as a sacred place used by priests and warriors for important rituals.

After this unforgettable excursion in Cozumel, you will return to your transportation where you will enjoy a delicious light snack while traveling back to Playa del Carmen, where you will catch the ferry for the return ride to Cozumel.

About Shore Excursions Group
ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
