ATM cave is amazing but my bad score goes to guides who step over the line. You can almost see sweating over the artifacts. Also there are careless tourists almost walking over artifacts when I was there so I can imagine what can happen ever...More

This was an amazing adventure that I cannot recommend enough. We had to swim across the river at multiple points and it had been raining so the trail was very muddy. Once we reached the entrance we took one more little swim and then it...More
