Contribute to the community with civic engagement, developing skills in global awareness and social leadership.

Kayak through a mangrove forest out onto a bioluminescent bay, where thousands of microscopic organisms make the water sparkle and glow with every oar stroke. Enter Cueva Ventana, guided by a trained biologist through the natural caves full of stalagmites and stalactites to reach the breathtaking view on the other side of the tunnel.
