Social Tourism Trips

Over the past 4 years, BECA has hosted a number of customizable social tourism trips that combine service, education, and relaxation. Participants on BECA's alternative tourism trips have the opportunity to:

  • teach Honduran children, ages 4 through 14
  • be exposed to a unique Honduran community and an innovative non-profit NGO model that operates there
  • live with a Honduran family
  • attend educational seminars on social and economic issues facing low-income Hondurans
  • visit the ancient Mayan ruins of Copan, tour the ecological preserve of Lago Yojoa, or scuba dive the pristine reefs off of Roatan

BECA will help you arrange a trip for you and your friends. Trips generally range from 8 to 15 participants and last an entire week. Historically, trips have cost approximately $1,000 per participant, which have been funded through a mix on-campus grants, individual and group fundrasing, and out-of-pocket payment. This includes rountrip airfare, in-country ground transporation, educational materials and instruction, medical and traveler's insurance, food and lodging, and a small donation to the community in which you will be working.
