One of the most spectacular adventures in all of Belize – we’ve never sent anyone who didn’t come back and say “wow!” Discover the world of the ancient Maya as you pass through the hourglass- shaped opening of the beautiful Actun Tunichil Muknal cave. ATM “The Cave of the Stone Sepulcher” is one of the most thrilling caving experiences Belize has to offer, bringing you face to face with incredible archaeological relics.
This is an active adventure trip; you will spend some 3 hours in this cave system and 45 minutes hiking through the rain forest, crossing the river three times. You will have a short swim at the cave entrance; thereafter you will often be walking through the cave in water ranging from your knee to your waist, and in a few instances water may reach to your chest. There are a few tight spaces within the cave and at one point you will climb a ladder to an upper chamber in order to see the “Crystal Maiden”. We recommend bringing an extra pair of socks, which you will need to wear in this upper chamber.
Wear: Short pants and T-shirt (you will not be allowed to enter with only your bathing suit), some type of closed-toe water shoes (Chacos, Tevas, Keens, etc), a pair of dry socks and a set of dry clothes. Optional: Sun block, repellent, and rain jacket. NO cameras allowed, however, the guides should be able to provide you with some photographs.
