Just back from a great trip to Belize. Before we went I had asked about taking a camera for the hike to the entrance of the ATM cave. Someone made, what I thought was a good suggestion, about taking a disposable camera for the hike in and leaving it with your stuff when you enter the cave. We found out that cameras are not allowed for the hike to the cave entrance. We were told that the fine was $2,000 Bz for the tour operator. They did say that there is some talk about hiring extra park rangers to be at the cave entrance and that would allow people to take their camera on the hike in but still not within the cave.
