We recently visited Belize and before traveling secured the guiding services of Carlos the Caveman for both a trip to the ATM Cave and Tikal, in Guatemala. The ATM Cave is absolutely incredible and is by far one of the most amazing things I have ever done while travelling. I wish I could post pictures (not permitted to be taken... More

We kept hearing from our resort (Chaa Creek) staff that the ATM was a must see. After reading up on it still here in the US we were already pretty much sold on it. First of all I'd like to thank our amazing guide Hugh! He works for Chaa Creek tours and is the best! He has 14 years of... More

This tour is not for the faint of heart. They warn you that in advance of booking it! It begins with an hour hike through the jungle that includes 3 river crossings. You WILL get wet from the very beginning! I would recommend wearing quick dry/gym clothing. I wore cotton shorts and they got very heavy. The guides are great... More

First, if you are staying in San Pedro you have to take an airplane. We booked the excursion through our hotel and it cost $300 US for each of us and that includes tip. The actual excursion is amazing, and mostly in the water. You do need to wear water shoes and socks. There are very tight spots in this... More

This is one of the most amazing experiences you will ever do, full stop. We weren't sure about this as the lonely planet did not say much about it. But when I asked a local tour agent what I should do out of Tikal, River Tubing and ATM, he said ATM without hesitation. Practical Information: their are only about 20... More

This trip is the real deal! You will feel like an explorer, archaeologist, geologist, and rock climber all at the same time. If you are not comfortable in confined settings, and aren't comfortable pushing yourself, this may not be the tour for you. The Pook’s Hill Lodge ATM tour will be the first in the cave - and yes, it... More

... I forget his name, it might have been Hector? Anyway, Pook's Hill will make the arrangements for you! We actually went in September of 2012, while celebrating our 20th anniversary. Our guide met us for breakfast, then the adventure began with a seriously muddy and fun drive down the dirt road to the cave... We marched through beautiful jungle,... More

We did the ATM Cave Tour with Danny as our guide. We booked the excursion through Mayan Heart World. Danny was a great guide! He was prompt picking us up at the hotel that morning and then we picked up a few other groups from other hotels. He was very knowledgeable about the Mayan culture and the history of the... More

You should do this while in the San Ignacio area. The cave has amazing artifacts from the Mayan culture unlike anything you have ever seen.
