GRADE 11 & 12
Experience summer on the beautiful island of Cozumel, in the Caribbean Sea, off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Cozumel offers incredible ocean life, beautiful beaches, tropical forests and Mayan ruins.
First settled by the Maya as a sacred place of the moon goddess Ix Chel, Cozumel is considered a sacred sanctuary and called “Cuzaam Luumi” which means land or place of the swallows. Just a short ferry ride from Playa del Carmen, you will have the opportunity to go swimming, relax on the beach, and participate in many activities. Spend your days learning and studying by the poolside and taking in the beach views.
As an included excursion, you will have the opportunity to participate in community service and earn hours. You will be spending a half-day with a local animal organization, feeding, brushing, and taking care of different furry friends.
Enjoy some city time in San Miguel, with its beautiful colonial architecture and gorgeous cobblestone streets, this city was declared a World Heritage Site in 2008. Indulge in Cozumel’s culture, art, and cuisine. Learn Spanish, take some salsa lessons, and head offshore for a sunset cruise on a catamaran.
For optional excursions, take the opportunity to experience the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ocean lovers will jump at the chance to scuba dive, take a PADI certification course, and swim with whale sharks. The perfect way to end this wonderful stationary program.
NOTE: When purchasing sunscreen, look for biodegradable creams and avoid products that contain the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate, which can affect Cozumel’s underwater ecosystem.
