Study Travel Ecuador

Traveling with your own Spanish teacher around Ecuador provides the perfect opportunity to combine exploration of the immense cultural and biological diversity of the country with Spanish lessons. Our Spanish teachers are seasoned experts and very knowledgable about Ecuador as well as being professional Spanish language instructors. Traveling the country with a teacher offers security and peace-of-mind, whether you are an individual student, a couple or friends, or a family.

We offer 10 different programs that explore different parts of the country, either staying in a lodge or hacienda for the week, or traveling on a set route and staying in different tourist-class hotels along the way. These five-day programs can be strung together to create a memorable adventure in Ecuador!
