Mainland Belize was incredible - Mayan ruins, rivers, waterfalls & more ! Oscar designed a wonderful itinerary for our family - he even took the time to make sure my son got swim time during the hottest times each day - very effective technique for preventing grouchy kids - Fantastic trip!

This tour was easily the most memorable tour I've gone on to date. Oscar was quick to make us feel comfortable and made sure we were always having a good time. His knowledge of history/culture/biology of Belize is stunning. A lot of our tour was my friend and I mesmerized by Oscar's ability to tell a story about the wildlife... More

Oscar is amazing! My friend and I had a wonderful time exploring the ruins and going through caves with Oscar. He was unbelievably knowledgeable about the culture, biology, and history of Belize.

I booked for cave tubing and Tikal tour with Oscar. I enjoyed his tour seeing beautiful cave and river, floating with tube. Tikal was also amazing and deeply moved by splendid view of Maya ruin sorrounded by jungle. I had a nice trip with Oscar which I will never forget!

I wish I could echo some of the other positive sentiments about the folks at Balaam Eco Adventures, but unfortunately we had such a bad time dealing with Oscar while booking the trip, that we decided not to go, and he has refused to refund our money. When we booked our tour, Oscar had promised an all-inclusive experience, which covered... More

Balaam Eco Adventures works hard to exceed our guests experience with us as you can read from our other 5 star reviews. I would like to clarify the situation in regards with this booking and believe that its unfair for us to recieve a terrible review from unhappy guests who never went on this awesome ATM Tour.

We enjoyed a fantastic day with Oscar. He took us to the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest, Rio Frio Cave, Five Sister Falls and the Big Rock Falls. Oscar is very knowledgeable not only about plants and animals but also the history of Belize. An active day with a great picnic overlooking the Five Sister Falls and the opportunity to cool... More

Book your tour with Oscar! He is amazing. We visited Caracol, explored caves by canoe and went zip lining. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Oscar's personality makes you feel like you're taking a tour with a friend, not a guide!

Oscar is incredibly knowledgeable and apt, highly experienced, and perfectly considerate. He tailors tours with generous focus on the customer and his/her goals-- adventuresome, informative, culturally rich, humorous, romantic, etc. He balances group dynamics, safety, and comfort with great expertise. He is also willing to go the extra mile. My husband lost his wedding ring in a waterfall on our... More

I have traveled extensively with my wife around the world, from South America to Asia. In all my travel I have never had a more understanding, experienced, or knowledgeable guide as Oscar Castaneda.
