This tour combines nature hiking, caving adventure, and a magical trip into the Maya underworld, making it one of the most popular adventure tours in western Belize. A forty-five minute hike up the Roaring River Valley and through the rainforest of the Tapir Mountain Preserve leads you to the entrance of the cave where an experienced guide will take you on a journey into ‘Xibalba,’ the Maya underworld. Exploring this geologically fascinating cave is a treat all of its own but the main attraction is the ‘Cathedral’ chamber, which was a Maya ceremonial and burial ground. Pook’s Hill is the nearest lodge to the ATM Cave and offers early morning private tours that provide our guests with the opportunity to get into the cave first. (Please note that this is “wet” tour with lots of time spent in rivers. You will need closed toes shoes that can get wet and socks. It is a full day of physical activity and may not be appropriate for all people. Children have to be over 40 inches tall.)
