We're partnering with the PSUPA certified local board shop, Undertoe Mexico, to explore the magnificent waters and hone your teaching skills in a calm, protected reef. As your well-deserved reward for graduating, on Day Five we'll celebrate with a day trip at Lago Bacalar, "Lagoon of the Seven Colors" and visit the Chachoben Ruins.
