We did this tour on an 8 night visit to Belize (2 nights jungle & 5 nights on a private snorkel island) & was our favorite experience. We stayed at the Black Orchid Resort, 20 minutes out of Belize city, 4 hours round trip for us to visit. Well worth it. We arrived at a store where we changed vehicles... More

For me this is one of the best caves you can venture in to explore. This cave allows you to walk through the path that was once used by the Maya, makes you feel the cool breeze and hear voices that are not from other tourists inside. Dare to turn your lights off and just remain quiet for a minute,... More

My husband and are had an amazing time exploring this cave. We felt like true adventurers. I have to admit being scared during many points (swimming through a very narrow channel between two walls, climbing back down where you can't put a foot on the next boulder before letting go of the previous one), but it was exhilarating once I...

After reading several reviews I was on the fence if I could handle this tour. I'm glad I went as it was the highlight of our family trip. My husband is physically fit and had no issue. My 13 year old is not a strong swimmer but handled it fine with a life jacket (provided by our guide). I am... More

An experience like nothing I have ever had before. A combination of swimming, trekking and caving with incredible, seemingly untouched Mayan remains at the end of it. There were some tight spots but nothing extremely claustrophobic and it is pitch black in there but you're provided with head torches on your helmets. There's a little bit of swimming but mostly...

Our group was traveling through Belize and Guatemala for a week and a lot of locals had mentioned that we should add ATM cave to our list of things to do. We didn't know if we would have enough time but luckily since we went in September, which is the lowest tourist season, we got a reservation at the very... More

We visited the ATM cave in October 2016 with the MayaWalk tour group. There were five of us in the group total, all young people (late 20s, early 30s). Words really can't describe how amazing this place is. You start by walking across a river that's about shoulder-height. Then, you walk about 25-30 minutes on a winding path. Our guide... More

I had never done any caving adventures before ATM, so slightly hesitant, however so glad we did it, best day in Central America! After we swam/walked across three short river crossings we entered the cave and climbed & swam our way through 500m, before needed to take off our water shoes & walk in socks up & across rocks to...
