Today was a free day with nothing planned in schedule, so we decided to go on one of the expenditures Belize offered, Actun Tunichil Muknal or ATM for short. It is a cave that is also a Maya archaeological site that contains artifacts including skeletons of human sacrifices, ceramics, and stoneware. Unfortunately cameras were not allowed in the cave, so we weren’t able to document what we say and experienced. However, it was definitely worth every single dollar we paid. The tour guide was very passionate with cave exploration and described the history and rituals of the Maya people. The expenditure required physical activity, but as adrenaline was pumping in my body I had fun swimming into the cave, squeezing through small spaces between rocks, and climbing up slippery surfaces. As an art history minor, I enjoyed exploring a natural museum and seeing artifacts in their original location. We all had the greatest time in the cave, and I highly recommend people visiting there if they are ever in Belize!
