This is a very long day adventure. Lots of hiking but the cave is huge! Not much pottery to see, but it was beautiful to be lost inside this huge ceremonial cave, with the only the light of our headlamps to guide us. Makes you...More

I have to give my husband credit; he found Belizean Sun Tours and Actun Chapat. Amidst the proliferation of web entries about the ATM cave experience, he found the real gem! An opportunity to explore a cave system full of history and beauty without any...More

The day trip to visit this cave operated by Belizean Sun Tours is hands down the most impressive caving experience offered in the country of Belize. I've poked around at least a dozen caves in the area and the number of artifacts combined from those...More

Please do not miss this private tour though Actun Halal and Actun Chapat. Ken is the owner of the land where the caves' entrances are. He drove us 6 miles through the jungle on rugged terrain in his land rover. We were accompanied by probably...More

What an adventure. Master adventurer Ken Dart has to be one of the nicest guys around. A crazy 4x4 ride through pristine jungle, brought us to this amazing cave. Way better then ATM! This cave is huge and has large caverns, and a few lakes...More

Very interested in touring this cave but am concerned about the difficulty. My husband and I are in our mid-60's in good condition. However, I have a knee issue which sometimes affects my balance. We also wil have two 9year old grandchildren. Could you please advise?

We would love to visit this cave but are somewhat concerned about our physical ability. My husband and I are active healthy seniors in our mid 60s. I have minor knee issues which sometimes affects my balance. We will also have our two active 9year old grandchildren. Would this be appropriate for us?
