The one week trip also includes some cultural and fun time at the Mayan Ruins called Xunantanich and snorkeling on the barrier reef. We will visit the U.S. Embassy in Belmopan, and a team of justice administration students and faculty will tour the Belize Prison.

Our teams will post information and photos each day of our trip on this blog. Please send notes and comments back to the the team. This will be our way to stay in touch with our friends and family while we are on the trip.
