atm tours

The ATM cave is a hiking and adventure experience with the added dimension of being an educational trip for those interested in archaeology. Here you will find Maya artifacts just the way they were left by the Mayas hundreds of years ago. The cave is ranked as one of the Top Ten Caves of the World by the National Geographic Society. National Geographic and the Discovery Channels and History have done documentaries on this spectacular cave.

The ATM cave is located in an area known as the Mountain Tapir Reserve. This is tropical jungle, so your guides will prepare you with suitable jungle hiking gear. The ATM cave is about a 45 minute drive from the nearest population centers or San Ignacio – Santa Elena, or the City of Belmopan and 1 hour and 30 minutes from Belize City. From the ATM site’s parking lot, expect a refreshing 40 minute hike to the cave entrance. It is best to start the tour early in the morning when it is still relatively cool. The entrance to the cave is through 12 feet of water and for this reason the site is government administered to ensure that only experience and licensed guides take in visitors.
