Pacific Discovery takes a Gap Year!
Thank you for supporting Pacific Discovery and we wish you all the best for the year ahead.
Be prepared to fall in love with Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands on our incredible summer adventure. You will experience the best of what this spectacular country has to offer – towering Andean mountains, dense and wild Amazonian jungle, incredible indigenous cultures, relaxing hot springs, active volcanoes and some of the world’s most diverse and unique wildlife.
Experience the wilderness canyoning and rafting, and trace the historic and scientifically groundbreaking steps of Darwin by participating in an educational island-hopping week through the Galapagos. Ecuador is one of the best places to develop your Spanish speaking skills as Ecuadorians are typically very easy-going and comparatively slow Spanish speakers.
This program can be combined with the Peru Summer Program, or the Cuba Summer Program for an inspirational 8-week educational travel experience in Latin America.
