Great Experience

Vase is the best option if you are looking for something in south America, the have a lot of programs from schools to working in the jungle.
The best thing is that you get to live with people from another countries and learn a lot of this beautiful culture. Is a small country but it has a lot of biodiversity.
You should definetely go to all the beaches, specially montañita. Try to visit a lot of places while you are there.
Do not forget Galapagos that is the most amazing thing, you can swim with sharks.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I ate a worm called CHONTACURO, it tasted like chicken
