Adventure Holiday in Ecuador
The two-week Ecuador Adventure Holiday program in Ecuador is ideal for International volunteers and overseas interns who would love to experience the mountains, rainforest, and wildlife of Ecuador without spending a lot of time and money.
The International Volunteers and interns will have 9 days of volunteer or internship work and 4 days of touring spectacular places in Ecuador including Mindo, Otavalo, Cotopaxi and Ba?os.
