An Amazing Trip

There is no way to describe how amazing our trip was. I could not have asked for a better vacation. We had so much fun, saw several regions, traveled every day, eat delicious food, and definitely changed my views as to what I want to do with my college career. It was a life changing opportunity and I am so thankful with everyone planning the activities for us! Thanks again!

One of the most bio-diverse countries in the world!

We visited the largest indigenous craft market in South America. It was unbelievable all the stuff we were able to get for really not too much money. (Awesome souvenirs). We also attended festivals and ate food that we had never seen before, and the people were always welcoming.

Come Down to the Middle of the World

Fun did not end at night time. The night life in Quito was incredible! We got a chance to go out in a huge city with great places for entertainment. It was definitely awesome to have someone to show us around and take us to salsa dance clubs, life music venues, and places where locals hang out. We saw great performances, danced all night, and listened to great music! This was an unforgettable vacation. I am glad that I decided to ask my parents and grandma for my Christmas present in advance so I could buy a ticket and come down to the Middle of the World.

The Best Preserved Historic Center in Latin America

We spent 10 amazing days in Ecuador last winter break. We definitely experienced so many new things, that it is difficult to put in writing how much of a life changing experience was to travel to this small, but beautiful country. Some days, we began our adventures in the colonial part of the city, where old temples decorated with gold and precious stones illustrated the richness of this country and its people. And in the afternoon, we will be looking at a beautiful sunset above the mountains, horseback riding at 15.000 ft above the sea level, eating some local pastry!

I appreciate all you guys’ effort to make the time here for everyone a great experience. Thank you as well for helping me improve my Spanish & having the patience to do so!!!! I won’t forget my time spent here, and I intend to return!!! I would really like to visit the Galapagos Islands next time!! I am not ready to go back home – I am going to miss the delicious food, weather & wonderful accommodations here as well as you guys!! The one thing I would have liked different is I wish I had more time to go shopping – Once again, thank you, I appreciate everything. Cuidensen,

Living in Quito

It has been very fun in Quito! Planning 10 days of tourism before my volunteer experience here has really helped me get used to life here. The Leon family is awesome!! Everyone has been so helpful and concerned about my well being. Although the weather didn’t always coperate, the activities were so fun and will stay with me forever. Not only have I explored a new culture and place, but I’ve also made new friends and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to come on this trip. My favorite experiences were horseback riding, going to the market, fruteria, celebrating new years and buying helados y pasteles. Overall I’ve loved this and can’t believe how accommodating everyone has been. Thank you all for your energy, passion and dedication to making this trip the best.

Muchas Gracias

Gracias por ser tan simpáticos y hospitalarios con nosotros. Las cosas que aprendí durante este viaje van a cambia mi vida. Mama -- tenia muchas veces memorables con usted -– los desayunos riquísimos, estar en el carro mirando monigotes, mirar las estrellas y hablar del día. Papa “súper bien” todos los días, su risa, caminar por todas las buenas vistas y comer cuando podía practicar el español. La casa es tan bonita aquí y me gustaría vivir en Ecuador o visitar a ustedes algun día en el futuro.

Ecuador is a country with plenty to offer

Ecuador is a country with plenty to offer. In one of our trips, we went to the jungle during the morning and hiked to a bunch of waterfalls. When we were done and jumped back in the car to return to Quito. You could see the change in vegetation in every mile, and we had literally climbed 4000 ft to make our way back to our home on the Andes Mountains. The views were impressive, and it really felt that we were driving towards the sky!

A great way to spend winter break

Overall the trip was a fantastic experience. A great way to spend winter break. Also, since this was my first time in South America I get to experience a completely different culture, food and language! I wish I was a bit more fluent, it would have been helpful. The accommodations and hospitality were excellent. Loved the Ecuadorian breakfast every day. Muchas gracias to the entire family wish you the best of luck always!
