The ATM Cave visit involves a jungle hike, crossing of 3 rivers (max. chest deep), swimming through some deep water in the cave itself, wading though the cave in varying depths of water, squeezing between tight spaces and climbing ladders and rocks deep in the cave. That said, if you are remotely fit and adventurous, just do this geologically and... More

This was one of the best adventures we ever had. We didn't really know what to expect - but were prepared for anything. We do a lot of traveling and love adventures - and this one had it all. There was history, intrigue, adventure, beauty, mystery, and a bit of danger. It was fun and every corner brought something new.... More

Travelled here Feb 2015, booked with Pacz tours. They are located on the pedestrian only street right off the town square in San Ignacio. There are a multitude of tour operators here, some less expensive ($80 as opposed to Pacz $95 USD) but I had read online that they were good. It's impossible to describe this tour, it's something you... More

The other reviews are very accurate. We booked our trip through our hotel as we were warned not to just show up. The guides may be booked up and you will not get in. I am a 60 year old, overweight smoker and made it through just fine but be ready to crawl and climb over and slide down between... More

We went on the ATM Cave tour with Katun AhauTours out of San Ignacio with (which I will separately review with 5 stars). This is truly an unforgettable trip but not for the faint of heart, those who are afraid of the water or dark confined spaces. BUT if you have any sense of adventure this 3 hour trip is... More

Doing the ATM cave tour was an incredible experience. I was a little skeptical at first because I don't swim (required to get into the mouth of the cave) but our guide, Emil, lead me around the mouth of the cave so I didn't need to swim. The tour involves an easy 40 minute walk on flat land to get... More

Hands down one of the best adventure sites I've ever visited anywhere and certainly the best thing to do in Belize if you're not a diver. Be prepared to get wet as the cave requires swimming and wading for most of the trip. Once you leave the water and enter into the sensitive area of the cave you have to... More

Thanks to reading Trip Adviser reviews, we were pretty well prepared for this. We were in a group booking so could not specify a guide but he was ok. Not particularly informative but helpful. We hadn't done any caving before, I am mildly claustrophobic, don't like heights and my partner is not a confident swimmer. It turned out to be... More

I've been to dozens of Mayan sites; I've been in lots of caves, from Carlsbad to unmapped caverns in farm pastures; I've waded in lots of streams. BUT NEVER ALL AT ONCE. This is a serious archeological site, but getting there is more than half the fun. The trip in is not for everyone, however. I wouldn't recommend it for... More

I am not a very adventurous person but man am I glad I set aside my fear and took the all day ATM tour into the cave. It was the experience of a lifetime. It was rigorous but totally "doable" and the reward is worth the challenge. Our guide Alexie was the bomb. I strongly suggest you do this excursion... More
