When one thinks of vacationing in Mexico, images of piña coladas and spring breakers often come to mind. And though it is a popular party spot (and we’re certainly not opposed to a well-mixed margarita), there’s another side to Mexico. A perfectly peaceful, naturally beautiful side.
One such spot that caught our eye is Rio Secreto in sunny Playa del Carmen. Close to popular (and swoon-worthy) resorts including Azul Fives Hotel by Karisma, Rio Secreto consists of over 7 miles of underground caverns and river systems. The ancient, pristine passageways also boast some of the most dramatic mineral formations in the world. Breathtaking beauty you’ll remember forever or a pesky hangover? We’ll take the former.
