Experience two countries in one program: Belize and Guatemala.
Belize opens a world of a tropical rainforest and coral reef just miles apart. Study the fascinating environment features that characterize these systems and observe the interactions between humans and their environment. In the rainforest, see iguanas, howler monkeys, and leaf cutter ants while gaining insight to the Mayan culture and its use of medicinal plants. On the coral reef, the longest in the Western Hemisphere, swim with brilliantly colored reef fish among the diverse assemblage of corals, sponges, and other invertebrates.
In Guatemala, spend time in the village of Flores on Lake Peten Itza and connect science and medicine of pre-Columbian Mayan civilization to our modern challenges at one of the largest archeological sites in the region.
