ATM Cave (Actun Tunichil Muknal)

If You're Into Adventure... The ATM Cave is it!

Travel Back in Time and follow pathways used by the Maya and discover lost worlds that have been hidden deep within the jungle for centuries.

Witness Visions of the Jungle
while trekking across rivers and remote jungle trails. We will take you back over 2,000 years in history as you learn about the Maya and witness first-hand how the Ancients used these caverns. 

See Burial Chambers
with calcified remains, ceremonial vessels and other cultural artifacts left by the Maya centuries ago.

   

Artifacts are Often Looted
from caves following their discovery. Because of this, passage through this cave is known to only a few select guides, who have permission from the Belize Department of Archeology to take visitors to this special cave.

To this day, the cave has not been looted and nearly all of the cultural artifacts have remained in place as they were originally found in 1989. 

The ATM Cave Tour

The ATM cave is a 45 minute drive from the San Ignacio area, followed by a 40 minute nature hike. The hike includes stream crossings and passes through the 6,700 acre Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve.

Degree of Difficulty: Challenging - A good level of physical fitness required. Ability to swim is a plus.

Clothing: Shorts and T-shirts are suggested along with a good pair of tennis or hiking shoes, (no sandals allowed). You will be getting wet so bring along extra clothing.
