De La Salle Scholars in Belize

During spring break, seniors in the De La Salle Scholars Program traveled to Belize.
Students toured the Mayan sites of Lamanai and Xunantunich, made chocolate using traditional Mayan techniques, and learned about the different cultural groups, languages, and traditions in Belize. Students also participated in ziplining and cave tubing tours, a guided jungle survival experience, and a planting activity with a local environmental organization. Our Scholars learned about Belizean flora and fauna by snorkeling in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, visiting the conservation-focused Belize Zoo, touring the Chaa Creek Butterfly Farm and Natural History Museum, and participating in a jungle night hike.
