I was a bit wary of the price and all the trip advisor posts about 'high levels of fitness needed' but I am so glad I went! The walk is flat and not at all stressful. To get into the cave you literally 'plunge in' and swim across. If you are at all claustrophobic this is not for you as... More

We are just back to Texas after sending one week in Belize. We started our trip out with the ATM tour with Carlos the cave man. He is the best! He is very passionate about the history and preservation of this cave and the story that it tells. This was,by far, our best experience in Belize. We felt that Carlos... More

If you do one thing in Belize it has to be the ATM cave. The cave in itself is worthy of your visit, however add in the Mayan history and it makes it unmissable. We did the tour from San Ignacio, started about 730am which meant arriving at the car park around an hour later, then there is an easy... More

National Geographic lists the Actun Tunichil Muknal Caves #1 of the world's Top 10 Sacred Caves. I list it in the Top 10 things I have visited anywhere in the world, sacred or not. The ATM Caves in Belize, close to the Guatemala border, are reachable by vehicle and with a permit. There are no tourist kiosks, no souvenirs, no... More

We went with Carlos and he was great- I felt safe during the whole trip- its not an easy day for sure but if you're in decent shape and have good mobility (not recommend if you have knee problems; don't like water; or have crappy balance- due to pregnancy or anything else) its an amazing trip- I highly recommend going...

This excursion taxes you: swimming, wading, hiking, walking in a deep cave for a very long time, climbing rocks etc. All of this is done with extreme supervision and detailed instructions. You are with a small group and completely safe. It is quite an experience. So glad that we experienced this.

The absolutely best cave adventure ever. I think it's rated number 1 by natl geo. I loved it! Lots of walking, swimming, climbing and yes, it's a bit dangerous, but oh so fun. Also educational. I vaguely recall Maya history from high school. Now i'll never forget it. ATM as it's called locally requires a moderate amount of physical fitness,... More

First, this tour is NOT for people who have difficulty with movement or who are unfit. But, if you are able to get around well and have a sense of adventure, it is fantastic. From the parking lot (which has modern toilet facilities) it is about a 2-mile walk to the caves. You go through a beautiful rain forest, walk... More

We took this tour with Pook's Hill Lodge:http://pookshilllodge.com/atm-cave-tours/ The lodge is 15 minutes drive from ATM cave, so I'd say this is the best place to stay if you want to go to ATM cave. Our tour starts at 8am and we had the whole cave to ourselves for the whole time we were there. One thing to note is... More
