Caves played a very important role in the ancient Maya culture as they considered caves to be a supernatural realm where their deities and ancestors resided.

Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave (ATM)

Otherwise known as the “Cave of the Stone Sepulche”, ATM cave houses various types of artifacts from ceramics and stoneware to the remains of skeletons. The cave encloses the famous “Crystal Maiden,” who was thought to be a sacrifice victim. The ATM cave is a hiking and adventure experience with the added dimension of being an educational trip for those interested in archaeology. The hike from the starting point to the cave entrance includes three stream crossings and passes through the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. The hike is approximately 45 minutes in duration. Once in the caves you will spend several hours swimming, climbing, and exploring. Once in the inner chambers you will take off your shoes and explore in only your socks to prevent damage to the artifacts. This adventure is challenging, and a good level of physical fitness is required. The ability to swim is a plus as you will need to cross deep water to enter the cave and will be wading through water several times both inside and outside the caves.
