One of our most treasured areas, Actun Tunichil Muknal (or ATM), is the resting place of the Crystal Maiden, a Maya girl sacrificed here ages ago. Throughout the cave, you’ll see unbelievable limestone formations, thousand-year-old calcified skulls and skeletons, as well as other Maya artifacts. ATM, or the “Cave of the Stone Sepulcher” in Maya, is a “must see” when you visit Belize.
Please be aware that seeing the amazing ATM is a bit physically demanding and you’ll be swimming through the cave at points. If you’re not currently in shape, this could be your incentive to get fit.
Believe us, it’s worth it.
