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.

Let me preface this review by saying I usually hate having to pay for guided tours. They are always overpriced and usually totally unnecessary. However, ATM is a whole different animal. I paid $85 dollars for the tour about a day in advance. I spent...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.

I'm sure you've read other reviews about how amazing it is, and they are all 100% accurate. Follow all the advice, like plan to be wet etc. I want to shout out to all the scared people out there, since I was pretty scared to...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

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.

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.
