One of the best ways to really get to know a country and its people, is to become a volunteer for a worthwhile cause. There are plenty of these in Ecuador!
Most volunteer programs are long term (one month or more) and are relatively cheap. Moreover, volunteering keeps you busy and it tends to bring out the best out of people.
In this site we showcase volunteer opportunities that take place throughout the country and which mostly revolve around conservation issues. We hope that you'll find in this site a great volunteer experience that suits your needs. Please contact the sponsoring organization directly or contact us for assistance.
