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

There are three aspects to doing this hike: the hike to the cave, hiking in the cave, and the explanation of Mayan history accompanying the hike in the cave. If you think you would like all three of these things, then it should be a...More

First off I must say that I got spoiled having visited ATM about 10 years ago, before this became a famous tourist destination and an easy day trip packed full of tourists. When I went there were only 2 of us, and it was an...More

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.
