I really loved this experience! I had never been in a deep cave before and it was such an amazing adventure. You do have to be fit and prepared for a wet time. I brought the wrong shoes...closed toes and good traction for the wet rocks is essential! On a hot day in the jungle the water and cool cave... More

Wow, one of the most exhilarating tour experiences ever. Our guide Brainard, B for short, was so educational and really in tune with us and the surroundings. We swam, hiked and rock climbed to the end and it was such a great education time! The feelings you got while moving through the caves was awesome and we never felt like... More

This adventure was recommended to me by a relative. I have been to many caves over the years and really didn't expect it to be up to much; boy was I wrong. This is possibly one of the best cave tours in this hemisphere, not for the cave formations but for the Mayan history. The cave has been left completely... More

This tour is very different from most you will do. About 3 of your 4-5 hours are spent in a cave. You walk through water, swim a little, climb a little in the cave and see amazing cave formations and sacrificial remains (human and pottery). Very interesting and in some ways beautiful and haunting. It's something you can't do in... More

This cave was fantastic! As our guides put it.. living history! Chock full of real Mayan artifacts & skeletons! We were even lucky enough to see a cave spider, cave crickets & crayfish in the shallow pools in the cave. You will be soaked.. but it was definitely a great part of the experience swimming/wading & climbing! Thoroughly enjoyed! Only... More

Visits to ATM are limited by numbers and only a few tour operators are licenced to conduct tours. We arranged our visit with Mayawalk and they picked us up from Teakettle. The site is accessed by a track several kilometers from the road. From the car park the cave is about fifteen minutes walk during which you cross three rivers... More

This was one of the highlights of our vacation in Belize. The drive up the Hummingbird Highway was lovely then we hiked through the jungle to the entrance of the cave. Be ready for "brisk" water in the spring friend steam that flows through the cave. It was suggested we were clothes we didn't mind getting soaked and dirty. I... More

Wow this is not the regular tour, you are used to! It begins with a 45 minutes nice walk on a trail. We crossed 3 rivers and be ready to get wet, water is up your torso.. then you get to the cave entrance and you have to swim in crystal clear water... you are in the cave and real... More

ATM cave tour with "Carlos the Caveman" is a MUST see in Belize. This is unlike any other cave you've ever toured. You just won't believe you're seeing actual Mayan artifacts & human remains that have been there for over a thousand years. It's like you're in an Indian Jones movie climbing & squeezing through rocks & boulders. It is... More

All of the things you have read about this cave are amazingly true. Cautions about tight spaces, etc...are also true so if you aren't ok with that, let it go. The number of guides that are trained to take visitors inside the cave is limited and so are the size of the groups. Even so, we encountered several other groups... More
