Owner’s Post: ATM Review


The Owner’s recount of their first time at ATM Cave (actun tunichil muknal)!

What was your first impression when you saw the cave opening?
It was a little intimidating because there’s a big pool that goes into the entrance and our guide, Wilbert, looks to us and says we are suppose to swim into the mouth. You just hold your breath and jump in.

What was your favorite part of ATM?
Climbing (and swimming) into different cathedrals of the cave, they are massive!

What did you see while exploring?
It’s amazing because you walk along history following what the Maya did to reach out to their gods. Lots of ceramic pots, cave drawings and even human remains!
