One of my favorite things about my travels to Belize is the wonderful people I’ve made relationships with. Belizeans are so open and warm and really invite you into their lives. The USA and Canadian residents of Belize are adventurous souls- with a brave pioneer mentality. They really know how to follow their dreams and make things happen.

Talking to the creators of these projects is just as fascinating as the projects themselves.
I love connecting students and tourists to the amazing people and the places I’ve come into contact with. Whenever I travel there, I am truly inspired and I always experience amazing synchronicity.
