Hiking through the rainforest to different waterfalls, staying on a research island and going snorkeling everyday are just some of the activities that I participated in on the Archer Abroad trip to Belize. The trip took place during the second week of spring break. I was fortunate enough to go on the trip, and I had such an incredible experience. Here are the top 10 reasons why I loved going to Belize.

  1. We learned all about marine biology, including the impact that global warming has had on the ocean and how the dangerous state of the Great Barrier Reef.

  2. We went snorkeling nine times in beautiful oceans and went tubing in a real life lazy river.

  3. We saw many different types of marine life besides fish, such as starfish, coral, stingrays and jellyfish.

  4. We went hiking in the Cockscomb Wildlife Basin rainforest.

  5. We saw three unbelievable waterfalls. It looked like a postcard!

  6. We were pushed out of our comfort zones. As our instructor said, “magic begins outside of your comfort zone.”

  7. We learned about the Mayan culture in Belize and visited the Mayan cultural center. There, we learned how to make tortillas and Mayan chocolate.

  8. We saw two big bottlenose dolphins!

  9. We ate amazing Belizean food like fried jacks, beans, fish and the best fruits.

  10. Most of all, we made some incredible memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
