Luis from Kawiil Tours did a great job; he's been 16 years guiding at ATM and does not rush and is generally prepared for all types of visitors, whatever their level of fitness. It is fascinating to see the way the Mayans used the cave...More

It’s all about who your guide is (we left from Chaa Creek). We were very lucky to have a guide who got us in early, explained the history/geology/fauna and didn’t rush us. On our way back there were guides who were hustling back and loosing...More

ATM was a great site to see. This site won't be open to the public for very long as there has been lots of damage and erosion done from so many tourists in the past. They don't allow cameras on any part of the trip...More

Worth the money! I paid ~$100 with Kawiil Tours. Who you book with does not make a big difference because the individual guides are certified by the government. They subcontract with the companies that offer the tours. Wear shoes you can walk and swim in....More
