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...

I visited Belize in the beginning July 2016 with my roommate. We could not be more pleased with this wonderful place we got to experience with Gonzo as our tour guide from RiverRat expeditions. He was so wonderful and offered so much fascinating information and insight into the cave and the life of the Mayan people. He is half Mayan... More

The ATM cave is imposing, exhilarating and deeply cultural all at the same time. It stars with an easy 45 minute trek through a clear jungle path, in which you cross the river a few times. When you enter the cave you have to swim across a large pool. Then you wade in water through a small pass. After which... More

This was an unbelieveable experience. Out tour guide was Jamir and he was truly exceptional. He knows his history and is great at sharing all he knows in a fun and animated way. The cave was indescribably gorgeous. I can't believe you are allowed so close to true archeological treasures. Must be semi fit, able to climb, and swim through... More

What an experience! I never would have thought I could do something like this, but I did and I'm so glad I did. You need to be in at least moderately good shape, wear water shoes, and a quick drying shirt that doesn't hold water to make this tour more enjoyable. I suggest jean shorts or some type of shorts...

Wow, wow. I am quite sure the caves and the history that lies inside it won't be open to the public in the future. So experience it while you can.

On our first trip to Belize, hubby and I decided to visit ATM. Neither of us had ever done a cave tour before so we had no idea what to expect. Our tour guide Lewis was great and very knowledgeable about the cave and Mayan history and he took his time going through the cave. He also had a nice... More
