Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America, straddling the equator line from which it takes its name. The climate is largely defined by your altitude, with stunning variation within close proximity – humid tropical climate in the Amazon rain forest, warm temperate climate in the cloud forests on the lower slopes of the Andes Mountains, cool temperate climate in the higher Andes and up to freezing snow-capped volcanoes at over 5,000 meters, and warming up again as you arrive at the coast with its tropical dry forest habitats. And all of these are within just a few hours travel of each other!

True Ecuador Travel is a local travel agency, based in Quito, that focuses on developing educational travel opportunities for individuals and groups to explore all that this country has to offer. Working with university departments for Study Abroad, Service Learning and Global Studies programs, they work to create itineraries that can combine Spanish classes, service projects, internships and research, and regular travel components. 

With its stunning range of ecological niches, biological diversity and cultural diversity, there is so much for any student to explore and so much to learn. How much one can explore depends on the time one has available. If time permits students can take a flight to the unparalleled Galapagos Islands. There they can either take part in a conservation project to carry out work such as rooting out invasive species that threaten the local fauna’s food sources, or take part in excursions to some of the restricted areas and uninhabited islands to experience at first hand the environment that inspired Darwin to develop his theory of evolution. 

A Study Abroad program in Ecuador offers immense possibilities for students of all disciplines to explore and learn through contact with the cultural and biological diversity of this diminutive country.
