South America has long been a favourite destination among travellers and we think Ecuador is the perfect place to volunteer. This tiny country packs a lot of punch and with so much on offer, it’s hard to know where to start! Nowhere else on earth can you experience so much natural beauty, diversity and adventure in such a small place. You can experience the wonders of the Amazon rainforest, windswept highlands, snow capped mountains and palm fringed beaches, all within a day’s drive of the capital, Quito! The capital itself is beautiful and historic and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
And let’s not forget Ecuador’s main attraction, the world famous Galapagos Islands. A nature-lovers paradise offering a once in a lifetime experience.
Our trips offer you the unique chance to live and work as part of the community in three distinct regions of Ecuador: the highlands, the Amazonian rainforest and the coast. You’ll help local adults and children improve their quality of life in a sustainable way and support various environmental projects to safeguard the future of some pretty impressive wildlife including sea turtles.
And if that isn’t enough to keep you busy, you can add an adventure activity to your trip. Why not visit the world-famous Galapagos Islands for the ultimate wildlife experience? Or maybe trek one of South America’s tallest mountains?
