Excellent Experience!

I am very happy to have participated in this Program. Ecuador is a fascinating country with a lot to see and explore!
What I enjoyed the most was the cultural immersion I had with the people and culture of this country. I learned a lot about the language and had the opportunity to visit many interesting places. The Organization of this Program was always punctual, attentive and with professionalism since I contacted them until my return.

The History of Ecuador is very interesting is a very small country with abundant biodiversity and very different places to visit. You can know in a short time different cultures, regions, meals, etc. And it seemed very interesting to know and learn each of them.
I will recommend and return again without thinking twice. Thank you
