ATM CAVE (ACTUN TUNICHIL MUKNAL CAVE)

Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave, which means Cave of the Stone Sepulcher, is one of Belize’s most visited underworld caves. Located in the Roaring Creek Valley in the Cayo District, ATM Cave is rated #1 by National  Geography in Central America. Actun Tunichil Muknal is approximately five kilometers in length and has four entrances – Main and Upper Entrances, Sinkhole, and South Entrance.

The Main Entrance resembles a  double  Gothic archway and has a deep blue pool below, and serves as the primary access into the cavern.

The  Main  Chamber contains the skeletal remains of 14 individuals (ranging from 3 years to 40 years old), 150  ceramic vessels, several grinding stone artifacts, and a variety of animal remains.

One of the skeletal remains,  possibly a  female, lies covered in a thin layer of calcite in the deepest section of the Main Chamber. She is famously known as the “Crystal Maiden” and is believed to have been sacrificed as part of agricultural fertility rituals in the cave.

ATM Cave is an all-day tour that starts as early as 7:30 AM and returns around 4:00 PM. The drive is about  1  hour 45 minutes to the parking lot of the reserve.
