One country, four regions: when you go on one of our gap year Spanish immersion programs in Ecuador, you’ll experience the incredible beaches of the coast, the dizzying Andes Mountains, the lush Amazon rainforest and the natural paradise of the Galapagos Islands.
The sky-high capital city of Quito boasts a stunningly well-preserved historic centre, bursting with Renaissance churches, cobbled streets and regal wrought iron statues. On the coast, you’ll find laidback hippie beach towns, the perfect place to learn to surf or do a yoga retreat. Nature lovers will be torn between exploring the Galapagos Islands or the Amazon rainforest, home to two of the richest and most diverse ecosystems on the planet! Discover it all during your gap year in Ecuador!
