Wednesday, November 26, 2008

ST. CLOUD, Minn. - Ruins, reefs, parks, ports, sharks, submarines, trips, tours and more await St. Cloud State learners in Mexico.

The Center for International Studies is registering students for a May 11-25 eco-tourism study trip to Mexico�s Yucatan Peninsula.

Led by Bel Kambach, assistant professor of geography, the 15-day trip will explore the concepts, practices, impacts and management of eco-tourism. Kambach is part of the Geography Department�s growing travel and tourism program.

Trip study topics include:

  • Great Mayan Reef system
  • Cruise ship industry
  • Mayan legacy and its influence on tourism
  • Submarine tourism
  • Geology of sinkholes and underground rivers
  • Cancun�s 19-mile hotel zone
  • Eco-friendly resorts
  • Mexican flora and fauna

Because world-class snorkeling and scuba-diving opportunities abound in the Yucatan Peninsula, students will have an option to take PESS 271 Skin and Scuba Diving.

Learn more and register for the trip in Lawrence Hall 101. Or, call the Center for International Studies at 320-308-4287.
