Ecuador

Overview

Nestled along the equator in the northwest corner of South America, Ecuador is home to Pacific beaches, historic mountain cities, pristine rainforests, and ancient Incan history. In this land where the number of hours of sunlight per day is nearly constant throughout the year, much of this tropical country is still remote and undeveloped. Ecuador’s urban centers are rich in culture, and the country’s natural landscape is among the most diverse on the planet thanks to the Andes Mountains, the Pacific coast, and the famed Galápagos Islands just a 600 mile leap to the west.

"Every time I travel and see another area of this magnificent world that we live in, I carry with me an even greater sense of connectedness. We are all one people. We have different customs, beliefs and opinions but together that is what makes us great. We are not all separate lives, living in separate countries…we are all contributing and living in harmony with one another. We must all learn to work with each other and begin to see the beauty in all of us."

- Gaye, Volunteer in Ecuador
