“An Unsurpassed Experience”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

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. He was able to work out anything we wanted to accomplish during our time in Belize even taking the time to point out plants and animals that were essential to the Maya population. In all our discussions while in Belize, no other guides new the information that Oscar provided us. He was able to stay with us on the more physically demanding portions and keep us informed when we wanted to relax. At one point, I lost my wedding ring in a lake near the resort we stayed in. I thought it would be lost forever, but he took a team of scuba divers and looked for days. I got the ring back in the mail a few weeks later - how else to describe this impressive tour guide!

“Adventure! Adventure! Adventure!!!”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

I was fortunate to meet Oscar this year, he is very knowledgeable of the different types of adventure that one can do while in Belize and he's eager to accomodate your needs, to make your outing with him, an adventure you will never forget. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Belize and the opportunity to doing a few more adrenaline filled adventures with him.

“Book your tour with Oscar!”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

We went on a tour of Caracol, the Rio Frio Cave, and the Rio On pools with Oscar, and it was an amazing day. Oscar is incredibly knowledgeable about the Mayan culture, very personable, and lets you customize your day and have the freedom and time to really enjoy and get the most out of your day. We highly recommend him!

“Oscar Makes Your Day”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

We booked a day trip to Caracol with another operator and Oscar was the guide (as freelancer). Lucky us. He is very friendly, competent and knowledgeable. Definitely one of the best guides (world wide) we ever had.

“Oscar is very committed!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Oscar is very committed to seeing that the group gets the most out of the trip. We did the Zipline and Cave Tubing Tours. He made everything perfect. He insured that we received cappuccinos at breakfast, snacked on mint flavored terminates, and jumped off a cliff into the water in the caves……just to name a few things. He insured that we never missed anything. It was perfect!
