In planning a Belize trip six months in advance, Balaam Eco Adventures professionally responded to my inquiries. I dealt with Oscar via email. He planned three tours specific to my requests — a private Xunantunich tour; a small group Lamanai tour; a catamaran tour for Hol Chan and Caye Caulker. Each tour exceeded my expectations.

My friend and I did the ATM tour though Eco Adventures! Oscar was very professional and made sure everything was taken care of before the day of. He, and the other team members, made sure I had a special vegetarian lunch packed. The whole day was such a great adventure, and ran very smooth.

Went fishing and then settled on a beach where Alex, the expert fisherman cooked ceviche and grilled lobster, conch and chicken with veggies. All of this while we drank local beer, rum and juice.
