Plan a Gap Year to Ecuador
Interested in spending a gap year in South America? You could spend time surrounded by exotic wildlife in the Amazon region, this is one of the most spectacular regions of the whole world.
Some trips last a week but there are longer options available where you can explore and go island hopping off the coast. Spending time seeing giant tortoises, swimming with sea lions or going walking off the beaten track is a special experience. Prices for 3 week programs can range anywhere from around $1000 to $2000 and includes free international travel insurance. If you are travelling in a group then for groups of 8 people, the ninth participant can travel for free and if you are booking early then get discounts, book four months in advance and receive 10% off the total cost.
Some packages also includes a free Quito city tour and dinner on your first night. If you would like to see more of this region you might also like to view our Peru gap year page.
