“My experience in Belize was great. The program offered cultural experiences, excursions. It was well organized and I always felt safe. This was my first time abroad and I had a great experience and will definitely come back to Belize to visit or maybe even do some mission work within the country.”

The best of Belize was mine!
“Beyond my wildest dreams was I taken care of. I had so many diverse and rich experiences of mixed local and Central American culture, languages, cuisine, music, both of a casual sort and facilitated like by speakers with slideshows and hands-on making of Chocolate and drumming.”
