Overview
Explore Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Caves and hike through the Tapir Nature Reserve on a guided trip that combines spelunking and exploring the jungle.

Along the way, your guide points out Mayan artifacts and shares historic legends that you wouldn’t discover on your own.
Highlights
  • Tour the caverns, waterways, and Mayan artifacts of the National Geographic-featured ATM Caves
  • Learn about the plants and wildlife of the Tapir Nature Reserve on a guided hike
  • Enjoy a traditional lunch between hiking and caving
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off make the excursion hassle free

As a young, female traveler (who is not very brave), to feel completely confident, exited and safe during the whole ATM Cave experience was exceptional. It really is a once in a life time opportunity kind of thing, and the whole tour is filled with adventure and fun! The cave

You better be in good shape for this one. Mayan ceramics and bones deep within the Belizean cave system. Must swim in sections and rock climb in others. Guides are fantastic. Experience is one of a kind. An intense but rewarding four hour workout. Lunch provided.

This is a truely uniqe adventure. An archeological sacred site that has not been excavated. On touring the ruins, one observes the artifacts of Mayan sacrifices over hundreds of years! Yes, even human sacrifices. There are skeletons that give glimpses of the Mayan past.
