Strongly recommended to everyone!! Once you arrive in Belize, you'll find plenty of activities to undertake, all of them priced similarly. The tour of these caves represents nothing but the best you can decide to do in this country. While the other activities are excessively expensive for what they offer (more or less 90 USD is the minimum price you... More

This cave tour was like something straight out of Lost. a 2 hour drive to reach the jungle, a 45 minute hike through dense jungle to reach the mouth of the cave, which had a river running right into it. Starting the tour by leaping into the river and swimming into the dark was pretty exhilirating! The guide was great,... More

I cannot express to you how amazing this trip is. You hike 45 minutes across flat terrain through the brush forest until you come up on the most beautiful lagoon cave entrance you've ever seen. You diver into said lagoon, and proceed through a pitch black cave (you have headlamps). You end up swimming in cool cave waters and walking... More

Went to ATM with Aaron from MayaWalk Tours - would highly recommend. The full day tour completely exceeded the expectations of our group of five. With an incredibly knowledgable guide in Aaron who truly showcased the incredible history of the unique Mayan site - and a great lunch, money well spent.

A once in a life time experience. If it is the only thing you do in Belize you will be satisfied. A full day adventure packed tour that leads you into 'Xibalba' the underworld of the Mayas. Hike the jungles, traverse trails across rivers, swim inside the cavern and make your way among stalactites and stalagmite until you reach the... More

As another reviewer commented you would never be allowed to do this a home, that said it is a great experience and one that will probably be watered down over the years, they are already preventing you from taking cameras in allegedly because some clumsy tourist dropped one on one of the irreplaceable skulls. Get there soon! My partner and... More

My wife commented many times "they would never let us do this back home... too many rules at home". That being said - you get to swim into the cave - climb over rocks - see pottery and skeletons up close - enjoy the history while exploring areas that are simply amazing. I'm so thankful that my wife and I... More

This is an amazing trip and a one that most of us have not experienced before. I agree with most people here, it is a must see, as well as once-in-your-lifetime adventure. We went from San Ignacio with PACZ tours, we had a great trip with them, but from talking to some of the many other tourists at the site,... More

This cave was a definite highlight of our time in Central America. Unlike anything you will see anywhere else. Use Carlos Panti, he was an amazing guide, supremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the preservation of the area, wildlife and site itself. Great guy!

My family (kids 8 and 10) took a total of 7 trips on our 10 days in San Pedro. This is the one they deemed their favorite. It's vigorous but breathtaking. Carlos and his guides were friendly, knowledgable and willing to work with us when we had to reschedule. Truly amazing and a highlight of our return to San Pedro!
