Actun Uayazba Kab (Handprint Cave), Belize

Along with its better known neighbor Atun Tunichil Muknal (ATM), Actun Uayazba is a Maya ceremonial cave in the Cayo district of Belize. The caves were reported to the archaeological world in the 1980’s. The Belize government has a unique management plan of opening the caves to limited tourism. The tours make the intact archaeology valuable to the local community and make looting the site difficult. Only a handful of tour operators guide inside the cave. Pacz Tours is our favorite.
