My boyfriend and I were told that going through the ATM Caves with Carlos was a must when visiting the Cayo District of Belize-- so true! We went out of our way to go on this excursion in mid-September and were so glad that we did. Not only was the tour full of fun and adventure, but was also an... More

This was an excellent tour, you get Mayan history, artifacts from 700AD including skeletons as well as great fun swimming, climbing over rocks, through caves etc. It's a great day out as long as you are physically able and are happy in water.

My husband and I just took a tour set up by our resort--just us and the guide--and had a blast. Beautiful cave formations, fascinating artifacts, and a cool trek through the jungle to top it off. A few tips, though: 1) Be in decent shape, because not only will you need to hike through the jungle, but also do a... More

My wife and I recently returned from our 2 week honeymoon in Belize. We had several amazing experiences and the ATM was at the top of the list. If you are going to Belize you should plan your trip around this excursion. There isn't anything like it and with inevitable regulation on the horizon, this wont exist in the same... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Belize. Its everything you read and more. So I don't need to rewrite all those fabulous things. A few tips: Wear sturdy tennis shoes or short water proof hiking boots! No flip flops, crocks, flimsy water shoes, deck shoes, or sandals. You want full coverage around your feet, with good traction soles.... More

After researching numerous tours that went to ATM we decided to go with River Rats on August 12, 2014. We hoped with the guides being archeologists it would add that extra level of knowledge that we wouldn’t get from the other tour operators. Gonzo and Israel were amazing! Gonzo took the lead. The love of his profession and of ATM... More

This is a really interesting tour, totally unlike anything we had done before. You have to swim to the entrance of the cave but it is only a few meters and the guide had life vests for anyone who can't swim. You travel about 500m into the cave over rocks and the water in the cave comes up to your... More

We tried a lot of things and spoke to a lot of people, and nothing comes remotely close to how amazing this tour is. The only downside is not being able to bring your camera, and we honestly didn't care afterwards. From the beautiful lagoon you swim into all the way down the cave to the skeletal remains you find...

So obviously this is an amazing attraction, but as you can see that already, thought i'd say a little about our guide, Louis. He was reccommended to us by Rainforest haven at $90 and he did not disappoint. It was a little different however. We were picked up on time, and quickly realised that Louis is very knowledgable, and perhaps... More

Loved it, a very fun experience, requires a good level of fitness- don't go is your claustrophobic though! You have to go with a guide which is expensive, we paid €100USD per person
