My boyfriend and I had originally only planned to spend time at the beach on our trip to Belize, but a friend spoke so highly of visiting the ATM Cave that we decided to start in San Ignacio. It was definitely worth it. I scheduled a tour with Carlos Panti (carlos.caveguide@yahoo.com) a few weeks in advance based on all the... More

One-of-a-kind experience with sensational guides. Swim into the open jaws of the cave and spend three hours scrambling back into the depths of the cave to find remnants of Mayan life and skeletons of alleged sacrificial victims. The cave stays at about 72 degrees, so it's not chilly, but it's not especially warm--I'd advise a long-sleeved non-cotton shirt.

Twelve days into our backpacking trip through Belize and we can honestly say that the ATM tour remains the highlight of our amazing trip. I was a bit worried that I was in over my head when I first booked the tour, but I was thrilled to find out that it wasn't as challenging as I'd originally thought. I did... More

I highly recommend Carlos and his guides for the ATM tour which is a "must do" when in Belize. It is an amazing experience. We very much liked our guide and it was clear that Carlos and his crew have great respect and reverence for the Mayan culture that you will hear about during your tour. It is a tour... More

If you like caves, and seeing artifacts all around, ATM is a must do! Wow! No matter how many times I do it, it's always amazing. You'll say to yourself, 'can't do anything like this back home,' like 1000 times as you explore the wet cave, and climb around, sometimes in water up to your neck, as you have to... More

Brainard August of True Vine Adventures in Belize was an amazing guide taking into the Maya Underworld. My girlfriend and I wanted to do the ATM Cave tour but she was a bit apprehensive; Brainard was wonderful talking her through the experience and giving her confidence. We were able to see amazing formations inside the cave as well as Mayan... More

This sight should be a must stop while in Belize! The sight itself is about a 30-40 minute walk after a long bumpy drive through the jungle with a few river crossings along the way. Once you arrive at the sight a short swim of about 50 feet is required to enter the cave then the rest of the tour... More

My wife and I just finished taking this tour, through Belize Nature Travel, and I can not put into words how awesome it was. If you are not a scuba diver then you must make ATM number one on you list of things to do while in Belize, number two if you are a diver. It has so much to... More

Amazing tour. Didn't realize it is quite as physical as it turned out to be - amazing caves, sights, quite the experience to go through the rivers, rock structures, narrow pathways through rocks, climbing steep rocks - takes flexibility and mental preparation for some of the narrow dark passages. And then the calcified moon scape structures and mayan ruins just... More

We chose Pacz tours because of the great reviews on tripadvisor & lonely planet. We are glad we did. Having said that, our guide PATRICK BRADLEY is truly the one that made the tour a mindblowing experience. U can read about or google info about the ATM, so I will restrict my comments to Pacz & PATRICK. Pacz said we... More
