Explore the amazing Actun Tunichil Muknal or ATM cave with us in this full day tour with a licensed guide that will take you through the amazing maya world.
Come with us on a journey into Actun Tunichil Muknal or ATM Cave, and let’s visit the sacred heart of the ancient Maya underworld. The ATM cave was once used for bloody human sacrifices and it was left undisturbed for more than 1,000 years. The National Geographic named it as the number one Sacred Cave destination in the world, and we completely agree! This cave is not only beautiful because of its enormous caverns but also because of its value as a natural museum of the ancient Maya world.
This tours begins with a 45-minute hike through the jungle to reach the cave mouth, from here we have to swim across a spring-fed pool to enter the cave. Once in the cave, our guide will take us through passageways, chambers, and a maze of tunnels till we reach the ceremonial chamber where the bones the sacrificial victims have fused with the minerals of the cave, it’s as amazing as it sound.
When we are out of the caves, it is time to go for our well-deserved rest and picnic lunch! After this it’s time to head back to your hotel.
