The ATM Cave is a "must do" tour experience- and it's easily accessible!! The tour starts with a 45 min hike through the jungle in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. It is a great ... moreway to soak in the majesty of the surrounding jungle. You will cross three rivers as you wind your way through the jungle to the mouth of the cave. Tour duration is approximately 3 hours. Bring along a change of clothes as you will be completely wet by the time the tour is over. Understanding why this cave was of such sacred importance to the Mayas requires an understanding of their spirituality. In the Maya religion, the gods of agriculture, rain, and fertility were believed to reside in the underworld. It would only seem natural that the ATM Cave, with its seemingly endless pits, would be seen as a potential gateway to the underworld. By making human sacrifices within the cave, they could appeal to these important gods practically at their front door.

Guests should dress as if preparing for a hike, bringing comfortable clothes and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Also, socks are mandatory for walking inside the cave. Bring along a towel and change of clothes (required) for a dry trip on your return transfer. Bear in mind that no cameras are allowed within the cave. The prohibition of cameras prevents damage to remaining skeletons and artifacts and preserves ATM for future generations.

Traverse the jungle on off road ATV, zip line along the canopy of the Rainforest and float through the Maya underworld.

Tour Leaves from Belize City After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship, or airport, we travel north to the village of Sandhill where we begin birding along the Salt Creek Road. Here ... morewe will be transitioning through different habitats from the Pine Savannah to the dry Broadleaf Forest. Because of the mixture of different habitats, we may come along a myriad of different bird species. In the Pine Savannah, you can expect species such as Gray-crowned Yellowthroats, Acorn Woodpeckers, Lesser-Yellow Headed Vultures, and Black-throated Bobwhite. As we continue along and the habitat changes, Barred-Antshrikes, Squirrel Cuckoos, White-bellied Emeralds, and Spot-breasted Wrens are more birds to be expected, a small pond on the road may yield Little Blue Herons, Northern Jacanas and maybe even the uncommon Snail Kite. After that we will head to the Caribbean Shrimp Farm, here we will almost certainly come across the very elusive Clapper Rail, also at the farm we can expect to see Royal Tern, Common Black Hawk, Olive Sparrow, and Yucatan Vireo. After finishing up the farm we will head back to your drop-off location.
