Travel throughout Ecuador and Peru with 12 other students as you share meals, live among different peoples, and build meaningful relationships with local people along the way. Travel from the vibrant, modern city of Quito to the Amazonian rain forest and the ancient Incan site of Machu Picchu. You’ll immerse yourself in the Spanish language while exploring and learning about richly diverse cultures and histories, build meaningful relationships with welcoming host families, partner organizations, and your fellow group members. Engage in hands on studies in sustainability and environmental conservation through service-learning projects such as conservation projects in the Amazon rainforest, organic farming in Ecuador, and community development in Peru. Relax and rejuvenate with a yoga retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru and end your journey trekking for 5 days to Machu Picchu!
