Home to 150 species of mammals, 540 species of birds and 600 species of freshwater and marine fish, Belize is a nature lover’s paradise. Take advantage of it by exploring the breathtaking Glovers Reef on a scuba diving course, tracking jaguars in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary or kayaking down the exhilarating Macal River. If you’re craving some down time, take a short trip to Ambergris Caye, Belize’s largest island, and undoubtedly one of the most picturesque locations in Central America.
During your internship or volunteer program in Belize, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved and make a positive, sustainable difference within this awe-inspiring country. Whether you teach children in a community dance, art or development, volunteer on a marine conservation project or support medical volunteering in Belize, the support of volunteers is essential to Belize’s environment and its local communities, not to mention you can further your field of studies at the same time.
Our Kaya volunteers and interns in Belize are based in San Ignacio, the largest town in the Cayo District. Explore this laid back city in your spare time. Be sure to mix with locals and get a feel for the community at the Ignacio market, a site bursting with character and known for fresh, colorful fruit stands. Stop by cafes and street stalls to sample the local cuisine, such as pupusas (stuffed corn pancakes).
Join one of our volunteer opportunities in Belize, apply for an internship, or even consider spending a whole year on a gap year program with us! You’ll not only have the invaluable opportunity to help improve communities and protect ecosystems, but you’ll also experience elements of this truly unique and awe-inspiring country.
