All the people at Maya Walk were amazing including Chimy, Aaron, Smokey, Bruce, Felize, and the rest of the staff. Definitely recommend any tours they offer there since we did them all! They are very knowledgable, give an energetic tour, and party hard at night;)

For adrenalin junkies, this is for you. Everyone else, keep reading. No one told us how dangerous this tour actually is. You're in a cave for 3.5 hours, watching each place you step as to not slip on sharp rocks and crack your skull. You go in and out of waist deep water and crawl through tiny crevices to make...

Amazing experience caving , and seeing skeletal remains from the Mayans. I am not sure how this is still open to the public as it is so freash and unique. You hike in the jungle then get in the cave but swimming and then climbing throughout it. Really amazing experience and must do in Belize!

We went to ATM with Orlando from K'atun Ahaw . The entire day was excellent! The drive into the cave was interesting. Orlando gave us great instructions while hiking into the cave and for maneuvering through all the climbs and water passages. The cave formations are beautiful and the large amount of relics is amazing. I can't imagine being allowed... More

Our tour was organized through Moonracer Farm and they work closely with RRT, and Gonzo is the owner of that. It's hard to describe ATM, I really just think everyone should do it. You get to hike through the jungle, ford a river then go spelunking...does it get any better? Gonzo is a wealth of information and he was such... More

Just marvelous, in an adventure cat sort of way. The hike in is pretty easy, mostly flat and easy trail, although you have to wade across the river in three locations and the stones are large and loose; we went on the first day open after days of rain and the water was high and the current strong, which no...

This is a MUST DO on your Belize vacation, IF.... you are physically fit and seeking adventure! There are no words to describe the thrill and adrenaline rush one experiences on this cave tour! This is not a tour for small children, or individuals who don't consider themselves very physically active and capable. The jungle walk to reach the cave... More

Gonzo was our guide from River Rat Tours and this was my favorite attraction during my two weeks in Belize. Can't describe how awesome it was just go you won't be disappointed. 4 hours in the dark with water up to your legs one moment then chest the next as you worm your wave through tiny cave openings. Plus at... More

This adventure pushed my boundaries and I came out feeling awesome for having completed the tour. I'm naturally a bit skittish, so I was nervous about being in the dark for 4 hours, having to swim (probably about 40 yards of swimming over the entire trip, in 10 yard chunks), and seeing remains from human sacrifice rituals. But it ended... More
