Wow! This was by far the most exciting adventure in Belize. You will start off crossing the river three times on the 45 minute hike to the cave area. Once you arrive to the cave entrance it is time to swim into the mouth of...More

What a great all day adventure! It was so much fun, swimming through the river, climbing up and down rocks (some slippery, some sharp) and seeing the ruins. Not a dull moment and worth the time and money. Not exactly for light hearted or disabled.

The visit to the ATM cave is a mix of history, culture, nature, sports... and most importantly, it is a real adventure! From the parking lot, you do 3 river crossings (the first you really have to swim!), swim into the cave and walk with...More

This was the activity that was giving my 13 y/o daughter the most anxiety about. I have to say that reading about seeing the skeletal remains of a sacrificed child definitely gave me pause, as well as the physicality of having to hike, climb, and...More

This was the most amazing experience. My whole family was blown away! We did this at the beginning of our trip and my kids (adults) did not want to do any more caving - so as not to ruin this experience. Our guide was awesome!...More

You can only visit with an experienced guide. No cameras and you must wear socks and protective footwear.

They take you on an alternate route, so he'd miss some of the cave sites. Our guide said some people say they can swim because they don't want to miss out on stuff, thinking that it's not a serious requirement, but it is... More

Hire a taxi for the day. Meet at Teakettle the travel agency véhicule that you have previously booked and informed of your hour impératives. Could be possible to do. Good luck.
