About Program

Are you passionate about sustainable living and food production? Want to promote tourism that works with nature rather than against it? Join us for a long-term internship in Ecuador! This internship offers professional training and development in sustainable agriculture and ecotourism, as well as professionally recognized qualifications.

As an intern, you will live at a sustainable permaculture farm on the coast of Ecuador – there you will act as the farm’s host/guide, help market and sell fair trade goods, arrange tours and excursions for the farm’s guests, and help maintain the farm. The internship also includes participation in the farm’s permaculture course!

You will gain and develop new skills, meet a diverse range of people, improve your Spanish (we think you’ll be nearly fluent by the end), and learn about an exciting and growing sector of the tourism industry. And of course, you will have the amazing experience of living and working in beautiful Ecuador!

This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with NGO Taxi for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.
