Description
If you want a feel-good tour - then this combination is the one for you! Start the day by traveling to the Maya village of San Pedro Columbia, where you will work with a small, volunteer-based, community group, who have been replanting trees along the Columbia River since Hurricane Iris caused devastation to the riverbanks in 2001. Meet group members, visit the tree nursery, and plants trees of your own to help the community's efforts.

Next, visit the village of Medina Bank, where you can relax with a river tubing tour in the jungle, during which your guide will point out the different native flora and fauna that you see. Proceeds from the tour in Medina Bank go to a community fund, which helps to support the village school and other community needs.
