ATM Cave Tour Belize: The World’s #1 Sacred Cave
The ATM Cave, also known as Actun Tunichil Muknal, is a national park managed by the National Institute of Cultural and History (NICH) and is one of the top tourist attractions in Belize. It is rated by National Geographic and Discovery Channel as the #1 sacred cave in the world.
The guided trip into the ATM Cave takes you deep into the underworld that the ancient Maya called “Xibalba.” The tour starts with a scenic 45-minute walk through Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve, where you will wade across crystal-clear rivers and hike under the jungle canopy.
Upon reaching the natural, hourglass-shaped opening, you will know that you have arrived at the entrance to the cave. You will then swim across a beautiful turquoise pool (about 15 feet across) to enter the cave.
From that point, you will follow your tour guide, swimming, wading, and climbing your way through the darkness of the cave for approximately an hour. Your highly trained professional team of guides will point out every possible area of injury and instruct you on how to avoid them.
Once out of the water, you will begin to see Mayan artifacts and human remains in that area. You will have the opportunity to learn about the Maya culture and their use of the cave for religious ceremonies.
The ATM Cave Tour is a unique and unforgettable experience that will give you a glimpse into the world of the ancient Maya.
