Get ready to experience the Mayan underworld known as "Xibalba." Wear dri-fit clothing, gym shoes and socks that you don't mind getting wet and dirty and get ready to star in your own Tomb Raider. :) You get to hike, swim and traverse ancient cave systems used by the Mayan civilizations for rituals and sacrifices. You can't take pictures in... More

At the end of the cave, it was claustrophobic. Also, it's physically challenging. Worth seeing but I'll never do it again.

This tour was fantastic and was easily the best event we had in Belize. This is a strenuous activity so not recommended for some elderly, very overweight or very young children. You drive through a huge farm of coconut, mahaghony and teak trees, then take a 45 min walk crossing the cool river three times to get to the cave.... More

Such a unique experience! We booked a guided tour to the cave from an experienced guide. It takes awhile to drive to the park where the tour begins. There are nice bathrooms there to change into clothes for the trip. Be sure to wear clothing you can get wet and easily move in. I wore a bathing suit with an... More

This is an experience you could never have in the US. There is an element of danger that makes it all the more spectacular. I don't mean life-threatening danger, but slippery rocks, deep pools, narrow crawl spaces, dark spaces, and boulders to climb gave us a few bumps and bruises. No dangers from any type of creatures made it nice.... More

I keep traveling Central America looking for a cave tour equal to this one. So far nothing comes close. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was AMAZING! I've never been able to interact with history in such a real and intimate way. The jungle "hike" is pretty tame, the trail is wide and flat. The river crossings are very shallow, but slippery (mid calf height at the most, I'm 5.5"). Our guide got us there early, so we were able to experience the... More

My husband and I recently went to Belize, and we could not have left without saying hi to Carlos The Cave Man! He is from far the most knowledgeable tour man I've met, he is very passionate and tells stories about the Mayan culture and civilisation. We did the tour in a few hours, Carlos takes time to make stops... More

The ATM cave is an incredible experience where you have to "earn" the reward of seeing Mayan artifacts and sacred areas by swimming, wading, squeezing, scrambling, climbing your way through a cave filled with fantastic, awe-inspiring geologic formations. I've never experienced anything like this in my life. As a preliminary note - I booked the tour through River Rat expeditions,... More

This was by far the best thing we did on our trip! The guides are very knowledgable and know the caves so well. We were able to see pottery, skeletal remains, and hear stories of how the Mayans used the cave. This is definitely not for those who don't like an adventure but for those who do it is perfect...
