Students return from ecotourism adventure
March 06, 2012

For eight days, 14 students studying in the areas of culinary management, recreation and leisure, hotel and tourism management and travel tourism, traded in their laptops and books for hiking, cave tubing, exploring ruins, zip-trekking and learning about the culture, animals and plant life of Belize.

Students got hands-on in the rainforest, learning about nature’s pharmacy and venturing to an untouched waterfall.

They also lived on their own island with a Garifuna family, cooking, cleaning, using outdoor showers, kayaking, snorkeling, line fishing and living in rustic guest houses.

It took them two days to get home due to weather conditions, but none of the students minded since the adventure just continued!
