One of the best things I’ve ever done. I recommend going early morning to avoid the crowds. Relatively untouched history deep in the jungle of Belize - amazing experience.

All of the reviews about the physical challenge in getting to the cave and navigating the cave are true. However it has taken me two weeks to truly process the ATM cave. I would not consider entering this cave with anyone but our phenomenal guide,...More

The passages are pretty narrow - just inches in some parts so if you suffer from anxiety I don’t recommend it. A friend on the tour with us had to turn back because of this exact issue.
