Program Overview

Program Description:

The From Ridges to Reef in Belize Program offers students a once-in-a-lifetime experience where students will have the opportunity to live on one of Belize’s most pristine offshore cayes; have access to an archaeological cave system; explore the Sibun river; and form lasting friendships with the people they meet on their adventure. Students will explore special places where only few travelers go, such as the Actun Tunichil Muknal, a sacred Mayan sacrificial site, and the infamous Blue Hole that Jacques-Yves Cousteau made famous in 1972. Students will have the opportunity to snorkel the protected reefs within the Blue Hole and those surrounding Half Moon Caye National Monument; go sea kayaking and snorkeling around the offshore caye; and engage in community service projects.
