This is was the highlight of my trip to belize. So much history and such a cool place to walk around. Such a unique experience. If you're claustrophobic certain areas might concern you but overall its a simple cave to get around.

The ATM cave is spectacular, one feels in awe walking through this sacred place with ancient pottery and other Mayan history littering the path. The tour ends, appropriately enough, with a viewing of the Crystal Maiden which will take your breath away. I highly recommend...More
