Going Vegan in Belize

Going Vegan in Belize

It's definitely a shock to go vegan when you're used to consuming a large amount of meat - and are even more reliant on eggs, whey protein, and cheese.

Calgary Gals Brave the Jungle - A TREE Belize Trip

The first TREE trip of the 2017/2018 season was an unforgettable one! 

We trekked up mountains, climbed up ruins, tubed down rivers, slid down natural waterslides, jumped off waterfalls, partied with locals, and swam with the fishes - but we also learned a lot about the protected areas we visited, discussed sustainability practices nightly, identified over fifty species of flora and fauna, improved our jungle skills, and experienced real Belizean culture.
