Description
This trip starts with a 45-minute jungle hike that includes three creek crossings and then the entrance to Achtun Tunichil Muknal looms out of the jungle mist inviting the explorer to discover ancient Maya secrets.

You will swim into the ancient Maya Underworld and spend the next few hours exploring places known to a very few people. Access to the ATM cave is limited by the Belize Department of Archeology and, unlike other area caves, this one has been largely protected from looting.  

The ATM’s secrets include Maya pottery, the full skeleton of a teenage Maya girl now called “The Crystal Maiden”, and other human remains.

The ATM Tour is for the adventurous. Hiking, climbing, and swimming can be challenging. Remember though, nothing incredible is ever easy and this trip is incredible! Experience some of the best adventures Belize has to offer, Actun Tunichil Muknal, the ATM Cave.

OMYG! The most exhilarating and educational excursion we have ever had the opportunity to be able to experience. Edwin’s Belize Adventure Tours out did themselves for our group. “Poncho” was the best guide we have had yet in all our belizeans adventures. Our group consisted of my husband and I (age 62-65) and our daughter/son in law and friend (age 40-48). We were a wee bit concerned because all of ... more us had some sort of underlying injuries, are large in stature etc. Poncho assured us that we would do well, and he took every effort to insure that we were safe at all times and never rushed us, in fact insisted on letting the other groups pass us if needed so that we would t feel rushed. He also was super informative and never once told us anything or any story if he didn’t k ow the correct answer or fact. Something I personally was thankful for. The hike was relaxing, even though we crossed the river 3 times, and the cave it self was not only intimidating but awe inspiring. Words cannot express our feelings that we were left with. Thankyou Poncho, Edwin and Monica for an incredible day for me and our family.
