Sure you can go to Belize and lounge on beautiful beaches and swim in the warm aquamarine waters of the Caribbean, but that’s easy! For a little challenge why not hire a guide to take you on the “ATM” tour. I’d strongly suggest going with Mayawalks for your tour. You’ll start at the crack of dawn in San Ignacio town center and take a 45 minutes van ride through farmlands before arriving at the edge of a river. From there you’ll literally dive right in and wade across the river in waist high water, a great way to wake you up! After about 35 minutes of walking through the jungle and two more river crossing you’ll arrive at an opening of a cave where a river flows out of. You’ll need to swim through the mouth of the cave opening and into the sacrificial grounds of the ancient Mayans! Lot’s of spelunking through narrow and wet massage ways will finally lead you up to an opening in the cave that contains lots of offerings to the Mayan gods that are still intact and preserve just as archaeologist found them –untouched for hundreds of years! And in the final room of the cave there is even the remains of a female human skeleton who is believe the be one of the last sacrifices to the gods. Times were getting tough, and they had to resort to bigger and better sacrifices, or so they thought. We all know how well that worked out for them.
