Have done this tour a few times now, as it has been the old stand by cave that everyone did in Belize. Have to say that it is getting too Disney like with large groups and people herded in like cattle. Prefer to do the...More

What a great all day adventure! It was so much fun, swimming through the river, climbing up and down rocks (some slippery, some sharp) and seeing the ruins. Not a dull moment and worth the time and money. Not exactly for light hearted or disabled.

If you are claustrophobic, scared of the dark, or prone to ankle sprains this probably isn’t your tour. The hiking and swimming are not necessarily strenuous, but there are several points in which you are crawling on all fours or navigating hand and foot holds...More

I'd considered abandoning the ATM in favor of the Crystal Cave, because I was worried that it would be too touristy. I thank my lucky stars that I did not. This tour is well-known and recommended for a very good reason and it is in...More

The visit to the ATM cave is a mix of history, culture, nature, sports... and most importantly, it is a real adventure! From the parking lot, you do 3 river crossings (the first you really have to swim!), swim into the cave and walk with...More

This was the most amazing experience. My whole family was blown away! We did this at the beginning of our trip and my kids (adults) did not want to do any more caving - so as not to ruin this experience. Our guide was awesome!...More

I don't know about water levels. But if they say it's ok, then do it. Best tour of my life! Swimming in a dark cave.... you can't beat it.

They take you on an alternate route, so he'd miss some of the cave sites. Our guide said some people say they can swim because they don't want to miss out on stuff, thinking that it's not a serious requirement, but it is... More

Hire a taxi for the day. Meet at Teakettle the travel agency véhicule that you have previously booked and informed of your hour impératives. Could be possible to do. Good luck.
