Actun Tunichil Muknal

Spending four days on the little island was bit too laid back for us -- we decided we needed to really rough it by heading into the jungle and seeking out the bones of sacrifice victims in a remote cave. Why not?

This is the entrance to Actun Tunichil Muknal, an hour or so from San Ignacio. If you have the chance to go to Belize, definitely do not miss out on this place. You have to swim into the cave and once inside spend most of your time wading through waist-deep water.
