snorkeling, viewing different native plant and animal species, caving, boating,
eating and drinking Belizian specialties, and meeting friendly people. While
having a great experience for nearly two weeks, they received 3 credits for
their studies. There will be a different trip next year and everyone is
encouraged to consider going!
