Go here... enough said! Really though, so fascinating. Must be in relatively good shape to swim across the first river, walk through the next two, swim in the cave system, climb over rocks in the cave etc. So so worth it! Go now before it’s...More

We took this tour with BZM Tours outside of San Ignacio. We were really happy with our experience because the tour left well before most other tours and we arrived at the parking lot of ATM Cave well before any other group. Our guide was...More
