Program Overview

“Indiana Jones-like travel waits for you in Belize. Belize has everything for such adventure, from untouched jungles with exotic plants and animals to Mayan ruins and Caribbean Sea with corals, dolphins, turtles, and barracudas. You will spent 10 days there, mainly on an island and partly on a mainland (one day).  The trip will be organized by APSU in cooperation with the Belize Marine TREC, the marine biodiversity conservation and research organization. Your main destination will be the island of Ambergris Caye, full of coconut trees, surrounded with crystal blue water and just few feet away from the second largest coral reef in the world.  Your days here will be filled with open ocean adventures: boat trips, snorkeling, and dolphin chasing. Visiting ancient Mayan sites in jungles takes you back through time.  Belize was once the center of Maya world. You will visit Lamanai, a Mayan ruins in Belize.
