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.

This was the most exciting adventure I've ever had! Everything was amazing! It got a bit cold in the end, but that's because I'm a skinny person! Haha! Our guide was thorough and fun! I highly recommend this tour to anyone who comes to visit...More

Go before they close it off to the public - just amazing. Very interesting, physical but refreshing. You walk through jungle, swim through a cave, climb through caverns and a fresh stream. They take you to artefacts, skeleton remains and walk through huge crystal caverns.

Yes, you will be in a cave and yes, this cave is underground. Yes, you will see skeletons. Yes, you will have to navigate this cave with a headlamp (just in case you weren't sure about any of these things). This experience was absolutely amazing....More

My family and I recently did the ATM Cave adventure and it was really cool! You will be wet most of the trip so wear a swimsuit, exercise clothes or something ok to get wet. If you stay at Hamanasi it's a solid 2hr bus...More

If you can lift things above your head and crawl on your hands and feet, you should be okay. The 20-foot climb is the most difficult part of the journey. I can only think of one other difficult part and that really only took... More
