Hidden worlds has been closed, but a new company has reopened the cenotes. They are now called Hiden Treasures. They offer guided tours of two cenotes, one an open air and one a cave. No more zip lines or jungle tours.

The underground river tour with stalactites and stalagmites is not to be missed. Some areas are dry, some with shallow water and some with deep water. Always in life vests. Tours with bike riding also. Interesting to be in the type of terrain and plants...More

Truly a memorable experience. We had a blast here and our guides were great and entertaining. The activities were fun and thrilling. Our favorite would have to be repelling into the cenote and having our guide take us back into the cave. It was truly...More

I went snorkeling here in the cenote. Such a cool adventure. They provide you with a wetsuit, lifejacket, goggles and snorkel. You are then provided with brief instructions and then you set off underground with a guide to lead the group of about 15-20 people....More

We had a great experience here. Staff was funny, respectful, and patient. Our 9 year old quickly realized ziplining sounded much better "on paper" than in person! They waited and chatted with him while he built up his confidence. The ride was rough, but we...More

Is this the park where you are given a wet suit & snorkle gear, ride in the back of a truck into the jungle for a bit to the entrance of the cave? I remember it having a bat cave at the end. I remember extention cords with lights inside the cave as well; was thinking water and electricity don't go together, but we had the most amazing time ever. Returning in a few months and looking for this particular place I just discribed. Anyone know?

Does anyone have info on Hidden Worlds Cenote? I heard it was closed and then reopened under the name Hilarios Well Cenote. Did the name change again? I just returned from Riviera Maya and didn't see it advertised anywhere..............

Hi JDWLOO. I agree with you on the equipment not being safe at Hidden Worlds! I was traveling with 3 friends and we did the Avatar zipline and one of my friends slammed into another guest near the bottom of the zipline because his zipline carriage just stopped on its own way before it should have, he was stopped dead in his tracks right in the way of the next person coming down. The employee at the top cannot see the employee at the bottom in the cenote and they have no communication equipment. This occurred in November 2011. It was horrible, he was shouting "get me down" before the crash and the employee who was down there didn't make a move, we all jumped into the water to try to get him down because we all knew someone else was coming, we could hear them coming and we knew this guy was going to get hit. We couldn't get him down and we looked up and realized it was our friend who was coming down and was going to fly into him full speed. It was very scary, they slammed into each other and spun around a few times. He was shouting "my head, my head" and she was screaming. I started screaming for the employee to run up and stop them from sending anyone else down while the rest of us freed them and got them down. Thankfully it turned out to be a bunch of bad bruises with heads colliding, handle bars to the cheek, arms, feet and legs bruised and swollen and really bad headaches, but no broken backs. I was so scared I thought surely they would both be paralyzed and wondered how we would get them out of there and get them proper medical attention. That one instance has caused me to NEVER do anything adventurous outside of the USA again! Scared me to death. We were having such fun, then the next second, their lives could have been horribly, irretrievably altered forever! I'm glad they were safe and glad you and your group are safe! They should get some walkie talkies for communication so that the person at the bottom in the cenote can tell the person at the top it is all clear. Then if there is malfunctioning equipment the person can be safely rescued before a serious accident occurs.
