This small Central American country, nestled along the Caribbean Sea, offers students remarkable adventures, as well as a glimpse into the mysterious ancient culture of the Mayans.  Students will grab the adventure in Belize’s lagoons, ruins, rain forest canopies, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and the clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.  Belize is considered to be the center of the Mayan civilization, and a visit to Xunantunich, or “Maiden of the Rock,” offers students into a glimpse into this ancient world.   Whether the students are hiking, cave tubing, ziplining, canoeing, or snorkeling, Belize offers them a genuine adventure.
