star-5

ATM is the crown jewel of all of Belize’s archaeological treasure. This is one of the most unforgettable and adventurous underground tours you can make in Belize. The guided trip into ATM takes you deep into the underworld that the ancient Maya knew as Xibalba. We’ll start with a 2 hours drive to the village of Teakettle. From there, we’ll turn off into the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve and pass through mahogany groves and orchards. The tour requires climbing and swimming as well as crawling through small spaces. The cave is extensively decorated with cave formations in the upper passages, dry chambers which lead to the cathedral-like main hall, a towering chamber 350 meters in length and 50 meters wide and filled with artifacts and sacrificial remains. Visitors remove shoes and explore the cave in socks only, to protect the artifacts on the cave floor. After this, another climb takes you to the stone sepulchre (after which the cave is named) where the Crystal Maiden lies.

Monkey River Tour From Placencia
"We loved this tour of the Monkey River and surrounding jungle. The tour guide was a local native who was born and raised right at the mouth of the river. He shared a lot about of what we were seeing and was extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife. He was very personable and shared plenty of stories about growing up on the river. We saw so much we would have missed without him to point it out... bats, hummingbird nests, crocodiles, iguanas and of course, the howler monkeys. We got out of the boat and he took us into the jungle where he narrated even more about their habitat. He was an expert at getting them to howl, quite an experience. My biggest caution, take plenty of bug spray and if possible, wear long pants and protective clothing! We used the repellent wipes and they don't work as well."..."

Best Action Packed Adventure available In Placencia
"We had the best, action packed day on this tour! The tour guide was absolutely incredible. The ruins were absolutely amazing and the tour guide taught us so much about the ancient Mayan culture. We stopped for lunch at a great roadside restaurant with exceptional food, and the tour even included a beer in the price. Then we stopped to go ziplining, the guides for that were very good, great senses of humor and made us feel very safe. Very cool experience! Last was the cave tubing, a perfect way to cool off after the 1st 2 excursions. We were able to go for a swim in the incredibly clear water of the river before starting, absolutely beautiful. Then we floated through the cave and down the river for about an hour, learning about the cave, the jungle and local folklore (ask about the story of Tata Duende). We left Placencia village at 6:45am and didn't return until about 8pm, so definitely a long day but ABSOLUTELY worth it."..."
