Saturday marked the ending of the Slippery Rock Universiy's visit. The last couple of days, students had the opportunity to volunteer at the Community Babboon Sanctuary by decorating the temporary visitor center, bus stop improvements, painting a bird tower and cleaning and filling bags for the nursery. The end of the trip took the group to Tobacco Caye where they got to experience the sea by snorkeling around several areas, not to mention some fun in the sun before leaving beautiful Belize. Many students stated they weren't sure of which direction they wanted to take with their studies until they visited and experienced our great country. So glad we could help. Thank you for visiting! 😀✈@sru_prm ... See MoreSee Less

It's been a busy couple of days for the Slippery Rock University students. They had the opportunity to attend a traditional Maya Healing Spiritual tour, a medicinal trail tour, and swim in the Golden Stream river. Yesterday concluded their stay in the Toledo District with the group heading north to see howler monkeys on the nature hike and a night hike. Students are keeping busy with continuing to learn about the interconnection between humans and nature with just the right amount of down time. @sru_prm ... See MoreSee Less

Another wonderful and fun filled day for the Slippery Rock University group. Started the morning with an ecofarm tour learning about agrofofestry and the importance of organic farming and the negative effects of slash and burn, followed by a chocolate making tour in the afternoon rain, and how the environment and human health are interconnected. Hiked a total of 6.5 miles through the jungle. The group can't stop talking about how much they are learning and the fun they are having. @sru_prm @ Toledo District ... See MoreSee Less

We believe that Belize's wild places, wildlife and  people are amazing and take pride in our role of helping to keep it that way. We want to share the stunning nature and wildlife with you, immerse you in the traditions and folklore of the indigenous Maya people, and take you deep into the forests for a jungle adventure that shows you how we care for Belize's wild places. Our experiences are brought to you in partnership with  Ya'axché Conservation Trust and the local Maya community that they work with. Our unique connection with Ya'axché (we are it's social enterprise business) means that 100% of our profits directly support the wildlife and wild places of southern Belize.

Be amazing, take a tour with us, and help save the homes of tapir, jaguar, keel billed toucan, puma, and much more...


Feedback from a few of our latest guests

Wow, what an experience. I didn’t just learn about how Ya’axché’s work benefits the protected lands, preserves, farm lands and communities of the Maya Golden Landscape, but I saw first-hand the passion and commitment the rangers have and some of the amazing places and wildlife they are protecting every day.  Jenny Wain

Fantastic experience! The team at Ya'axché is incredibly knowledgeable, not only about modern day challenges to protecting nature but how to do so sensitively, by including their neighbours and communities. For anyone interested in conservation and the environment, this is a 'must-do' experience, and totally worth the trip to Punta Gorda. Go on, do it! Meera Shah
