Mexico – land of cultures, traditions, and flavors

On the trip, students will experience the states of Yacatán and Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula on the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. We will experience the Kukulkan Pyramid, the Mayan Temple at the Chichen Itza Archaeological Site, school visits to Merida, cenotes and much, much more.

This is the first time that Ranum Efterskole College travels to Mexico, so the students will also have the opportunity to come up with good ideas for places that they think should be experienced on the trip.
