Yes, I recommend this program


I absolutely love Ecuador and I loved my time at Awaken! The staff treat you like family and it feels as if you are at home in a foreign country. Some of my favorite towns were Banos and Quito. The views are spectacular and the events/tours were super fun! I would truly recommend this program to anyone, whether you are looking to improve and practice your spanish, learn about Ecuadorian or south american culture in general, or you are just ready for the adventure of a lifetime (a lot of extreme sports included, which I LOVED). Awaken is what made the country of Ecuador and its people have such an impact in my life and I cannot wait to go back soon!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I was in awe when we visited Pailon del Diablo, the most powerful waterfall in Ecuador and I will never forget that trip.
