ATM Cave Description

The Belize ATM Cave Tour is ranked #1 of all the things to do in San Ignacio. It is Located in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve of the Cay District. It is just one of the many archaeological sites found throughout Belize. National Geographic once documented and listed the ATM Cave as a sacred cave. The highlight of this cave is the calcified skeleton remains of a young girl, widely known as the Crystal Maiden. The Maya people believed this cave was the entrance to the underworld and used for Sacrificial purposes.

The cave on its own is still a spectacular one to see. You can see amazing rock formations, Stalactites and Stalagmite..

ATM Cave Tour Review

"We got the most personalized tour of ATM cave possible, with only our group of three and the guide. Our guide was so nice and knowledgeable, with 22 (I think) years of experience in the cave. Please go with Pacz tours for this excursion - they were just fantastic. This tour is an absolute must for anyone in Belize - it was the highlight of our entire trip."
