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

We did many adventures in Belize this trip and this was the highlight for us. I was a bit confused on what to wear so let me focus on that. Shoes - water shoes like Keens or tennis shoes that you don't mind getting wet....More

The ATM cave is absolutely amazing! It is astonishing that the Belizean government allows tourists to enter this archeological site and get so close to such valuable artifacts and remains. I took thirteen study abroad students to the ATM cave in December 2017, and many...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

I don't know about water levels. But if they say it's ok, then do it. Best tour of my life! Swimming in a dark cave.... you can't beat it.
