Embark on an adventurous hike through ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal, a cave brimming with Mayan history. Be aware that traversing the cave requires a decent level of fitness, as you'll find yourself climbing, squeezing through tight spaces, and in rare cases swimming to explore the sites. The cave system spreads through about 4.8 km (3 mi) with a river flowing through it for approximately 3.2 km (2 mi). Be on the lookout for large spiders, freshwater crabs, and lots of bats. The highlight for most visitors is the undisturbed skeletal remains and pottery of Mayan origin, such as the "crystal maiden," whose calcified bones give off a crystalized, sparkly appearance.

  • Probably the best experience on our whole Belize trip. Hiking, swimming, and climbing through thousands of years of history.

  • A lifetime experience, worth every single penny. Guide was excellent and helpful, the cave is huge. Lots of climbing, swimming and squeezing through tight places. The tour provides all the equipment. Don't miss it!
  • The most intense caving experience I’ve ever done. It’s sad that you cannot bring any cameras or electronic with you on the tour but tour company email you some pictures. I enjoyed the adventure so much! Swimming, crawling, climbing are needed. The difficulty level was measured as 6 out of 10, but our group had two 70+ ladies who made through! Our guide was taking us to the more difficult routes where at one point we had to fit our neck through a rock gap. If you have time and chance, do not miss out on this!
