Expand your comfort zone and your palate with the delicious hand made tortillas of Belize. Learn the traditional Mayan way of making tortillas but be careful! Girls in town pride themselves over their tortilla's being better than their neighbors! They may even go looking for a Cane Toad to hold in order to make their tortillas puff when cooking! That is the Mestizo and Mayan tradition.

When you travel immerse yourself in the culture. Experience hands-on and when you come back you will feel like a different person, but maybe keep the toad holding to the professionals...

‘Overtourism’ Worries Europe. How Much Did Technology Help Get Us There?

This is a great read on the problem of mass tourism for European cities, many of which haven't grown much, if at all, in 50 years. What do we do differently? Ask us what sets us aside and how we bypass the noise and the crowds to give our groups unique experiences.

Happy Wednesday! Today's "One Group, One Picture" takes us to the home of Ana Villegas. There is not a more authentic, loving or charismatic family than the Villegas. They will welcome you, teach you their Costa Rican family values, and teach you how to make and flip tortillas in the air.

This stunning video was put together by Nolan Chinn, a student that recently traveled with us to Nicaragua, along with his fellow classmates from the Overlake School.

Their trip focused on journalism, history, and culture, and we think Nolan has combined those elements beautifully in this video. We live to inspire students and to be able to see things through their eyes like this warms our hearts.

And in this time of conflict, this video also highlights the beauty of Nicaragua and the culture of its people. We hope better times will come for them.

Hathaway Brown School sent an all-female trip to Ecuador, led by our amazing Gretchen Ferrell, who had this to say about the trip: “The single-gender aspect of the trip allowed the young ladies to reach new depths in exploring their personal growth. Within a context of completely new environments, they were able to truly be themselves, free from pressures of trying to impress people. This unique and powerful situation allowed the girls to really get to know themselves on a deeper level, and subsequently form lifelong friendships."

Melrose High School - Melrose, MA , February 2018. Marcela, one of the guides of the groups had this to say about this years group: If I had to define what Expedition mentality is I would say that Melrose students are the actual definition of it, every part of their attitude was so positive and open-minded that we could not ask for a better example of it...Keep that #ExpeditionMentality going Melrose!

We are proud sponsors of CostasVerdes , a local Costa Rican NGO that focus their efforts in coastal reforestation. Some of our groups that visit the Guanacaste area stop in Playa Guiones and work with them in their reforestation projects. Costas Verdes shared with us their 2017 biggest accomplishments. Here are some of those milestones:
* Over 5,100 trees planted in total from 33 native tree species
* Over 7,000 trees reproduced in the tree nursery
*Around 11,400 trees successfully established at the beach

Congratulations to Costas Verdes! Keep up the great work that you do for our planet!
