BZM is #1 on trip advisor for a reason. We did the ATM tour, and it was honestly the best part of our trip. We got picked up by Albert first thing in the morning and met with our guide and one other tourist in San Ignacio. That was it - 3 people in our group! Other groups had 8 people in them, and I don't think it would have been the same experience. We got to the site and were given the appropriate safety equipment. Since our group was small, we were able to get ahead of the other groups who needed more time to get it together. It seemed like we had the cave to ourselves the whole time. Our guide was extremely knowlegeable about all things Belize. He has a true respect for the sanctity of the site, and was really helpful in navigating through the cave. Our delicious lunch was prepared by Alberts wife, and really hit the spot after our adventure.
I was disappointed that no cameras are allowed, but after seeing the damage to the artifacts I completely understand... and not constantly looking into the viewfinder allows you to more fully appreciate what you are experiencing.
