Quito is a cultural, language immersion and volunteer abroad trip location.
About the Location
Although relatively small in size, Ecuador is a world-renowned biodiversity hotspot. From the Amazon to the Galapagos, the richness of Ecuador’s natural resources is unparalleled. In regards to society, Ecuador has enjoyed a period of relative stability since the turn of the century. One reason is the adoption of the United States dollar as the country’s currency in 2000. This has lessened the currency fears that hounded the Ecuadorian economy before.
However, Ecuador faces serious challenges. Its natural resources are coming under attack and, while there have been efforts to conserve the local biodiversity, many areas are nearing irreversible points of destruction.
Culturally diverse, Quito is a wonderful place to experience all that Ecuador has to offer – it is also one of our Spanish language locations. Learn with the locals and practice your language skills with the Ecuadorian people.
