Teachers have been supporting BOOKBAG SANTA for decades- now it's time to reward them with a cheap trip to the Caribbean Paradise of Belize ! We'll be bringing up to 30 current and retired teachers to Belize to see where the supplies from their schools are going, visit a couple schools, and talk to local teachers... and play- Mayan ruins, boat trips, snorkeling and scuba, live music, great food- 'way more than you can do in a week. That's why we'll have a second week reserved at the hotel !

It's never too late (or early) to start planning your summer vacation in BELIZE !
