Group was small, tour guide was friendly, extremely knowledgable and made me feel safe in the caves. The information he included about the rainforest, the caves... More

Our bus driver Mendoza and tour guide Abraham were brilliant full of knowledge as we travelled about an hour on the bus to the ATM. Wading through 3 river crossings to the entrance of the cave we arrived at the entrance of the cave with milky blue water. We made our way in through the caves for about a km... More

The experience of swimming, climbing, and crawling your ways miles through a cave to see the beautiful stalactites, stalagmites, hollow stone curtains, cathedrals, and remains of Mayan sacrifices was EPIC! If you go at a slower pace, it is possible for most people to do this. My guide was Bling, and our group was very athletic, so he sort of... More

This is an active adventure that requires swimming, rock hopping and squeezing through tight spaces, all of which make it more fun. You will see amazing Mayan artifacts right up close that were left in the caves over a thousand years ago. This excursion was the most memorable of our trip. The down side was the part when you are... More

My husband and I decided to visit ATM on our honeymoon and we were in no way disappointed. We booked our tour through the hotel were staying at and had an excellent guide, Jamir Zuniga. While you must be able to walk and have a certain degree of physical fitness, the tour really isn't too grueling. The tour begins with... More

I liked everything about it from the hiking, swimming and climbing, it was a lot of fun! The entire tour is 6 hours. Three of which are in the cave. The artifacts in the cave are incredible.

This is a must if you are in good shape. Simply amazing and educational. You gain a great knowledge of part of the Mayan history. The hike in is an adventure in itself. You have to cross the river 3 times before you reach the cave. You then swim into the cave and are in water until you reach the... More
