Walking through Actun Tunichil Muknal

There's a cave in Belize where you can see the remains of ancient Maya human sacrifices- but you have to swim in, wade up a cave river, and crawl through dark, cramped, uneven rock to reach the back of the cave system. There, you can walk among the many corpses of sacrifice victims, including The Crystal Maiden, an 18-year-old whose skeleton is so calcified, it sparkles.

There are many Caves in Belize. The most Historical one to be discovered thus far is the Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave. A.T. M. Cave for short. It is located in the Cayo District, not too far away from San Ignacio. This cave was heavily used by the Mayas in Ancient Days. When it was rediscovered in 1989, apart from human skeletons, it contained over 1,400 Artifacts which comprised of Pottery, Tools, Weapons and Vessels for water. Many of the Pottery and all of the Skeletons are left in the cave today the same way that the Mayas left them. The cave is open for Guided Tours.
