    Ecuador: Wild Galápagos Eco-Service

    From the colonial streets of Quito to the incredible biodiversity of the Galápagos Islands, this program is the perfect combination of Ecuadorian culture, tradition, and nature. You begin by heading to a remote, off the beaten path location to live with and work alongside rural Ecuadorian community, making positive impacts through sustainability and infrastructure-related projects. On departure from the idyllic community setting you will head to the big city to explore the streets and history of Ecuador’s bustling capital, Quito. The second part of your program will be spent exploring the world-famous Galápagos archipelago. Spanning 19 islands and home to marine iguanas, turtles, penguins, and sea lions, this UNESCO World Heritage site is an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience.
