Impressions of Belize

I recently returned from My elective in Belize with Medics Away. I would firstly like to say I had a wonderful time and have already recommended your company to a friend thinking of heading the Belize this year. Thank you for all your help whilst we were out there. I must say that Luis and Alicia are lovely people and excellent hosts and I enjoyed my time in San Ignacio. Many thanks for all your help whilst we were abroad, as previously stated I would not hesitate to recommend your company to any of my friends.

On behalf of Cyrus and myself may I thank you and the Medics Away team for a fun and educational elective. It was a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to fellow students.

Carlos Stephenson & Cyrus Mehta

Many thanks for your help. I have now returned back to the UK and had a fantastic experience in Belize, in particular with the Cambranes family. Luis and Alicia really went above and beyond to make us feel at home and nothing was ever to much trouble to them. They are a fantastic contact for medics away students and I really cannot stress enough how helpful and friendly they were throughout the whole of my time in San Ignacio.
