Awesome tour! We did this on our first day in Belize, you do have to have some fitness for this, there is a hike to the tour and then a short swim into the cave, and some climbing and wading through water in the cave....More
ATM cave is amazing but my bad score goes to guides who step over the line. You can almost see sweating over the artifacts. Also there are careless tourists almost walking over artifacts when I was there so I can imagine what can happen ever...More
This is a MUST do. It can be a little pricy, but it was incredible. The hike, the wading through water, climbing -- man it was fun. You need to be in a little bit of shape to be able to make it. There are...More
I read about the ATM cave and how it was a must do when in San Ignacio. I read a lot of reviews and there were some that indicated it was a difficult trip and others that said it wouldn't be a problem. The answer...More
Our tour guide was Francisco Reymundo with Ancient Cultural Tours and he was AMAZING! Not only did he lead our group safely in and out of the cave, he was filled with knowledge and jokes! He kept the tour interesting and fun the entire time!...More
We booked the tour through the lonely planet website. They accepted our 8 almost 9 year old children of our party.
You have to walk some before you get to the cave and cross 3 rivers. One you have to swim ( but they have...More

This was an amazing adventure that I cannot recommend enough. We had to swim across the river at multiple points and it had been raining so the trail was very muddy. Once we reached the entrance we took one more little swim and then it...More
There are crocs in Belize, but we didn't see any! Our tour guide joked with us as we were crossing our first river, but the rivers aren't very deep (one was waist high and I'm 5'6) and you can see the ground and everything... More
There are crocs in Belize, but we didn't see any! Our tour guide joked with us as we were crossing our first river, but the rivers aren't very deep (one was waist high and I'm 5'6) and you can see the ground and everything around you. The entrance to the cave is deep (you have to swim), but again, never saw any crocs.

Being able to climb a jungle gym will be far more important than being able to swim well. While the water does get deep in places, there is no current whatsoever, and the guides provide life jackets for anyone who wants... More
Being able to climb a jungle gym will be far more important than being able to swim well. While the water does get deep in places, there is no current whatsoever, and the guides provide life jackets for anyone who wants them (and it might be mandatory for little kids - there weren't any kids in our group, but we saw small children in other groups, and all of the kids were wearing life jackets.)
