Embark on an adventurous hike through ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal, a cave brimming with Mayan history. Be aware that traversing the cave requires a decent level of fitness, as you'll find yourself climbing, squeezing through tight spaces, and in rare cases swimming to explore the sites. The cave system spreads through about 4.8 km (3 mi) with a river flowing through it for approximately 3.2 km (2 mi). Be on the lookout for large spiders, freshwater crabs, and lots of bats. The highlight for most visitors is the undisturbed skeletal remains and pottery of Mayan origin, such as the "crystal maiden," whose calcified bones give off a crystalized, sparkly appearance.

ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal reviews
Don’t believe everything you may read about ATM! Yes, there is a little swimming involved and there is some climbing up rocks so don’t come if those aren’t your thing or if you’re claustrophobic... more »
My family and I visited Actun Tunichil Muknal June of 2019. This is not like a cave in the US where tourists visit. YOu must hike, cross rivers, swim across the pool at the entrance of the cave, wade.... more »
BE READY—it is a physically INTENSE journey into this amazing site. 30 min jungle walk (including wading through 3 rivers) and then A LOT of tight spaces and more water in the actual cave itself. WATER SHOES are a must, or prepare to ruin your tennis shoes. Inside the cave is INCREDIBLE. Unlike anything I have ever seen before.
The was an awesome day time adventure. We learned so much about Mayan history and enjoyed the beauty of the hike to the cave then hours in the cave. It was one of the highlights of our trip. You do need to be in fairly good shape to participate in this tour/activity. It was great!!
