Encounter life near the equator in South America

We’ll explore the steamy Amazon jungle and soak up Indigenous Andean culture during a community engagement project with a local school. We’ll also learn about conservation efforts to protect the unique wildlife in the ecologically diverse Galapagos Islands.

Highlights:

  • Learning about local development issues from community members
  • Exploring the historic city of Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Swimming and hiking at Galapagos National Park
Highlight of my summer and would recommend to anyone looking for something to do.”
