YOUTH TRIP: ECUADOR - AMAZON

Experience a vibrant culture on a life-changing rainforest adventure

Leave your mark on the world and get to know a remarkable community.

From Ecuador’s historic capital, Quito, to the heart of the Amazon rainforest, uncover the secrets of the rainforest on an unforgettable adventure! Nestled in the lush, exotic jungle on the banks of Los Rios, Minga Lodge is your home-away-from-home where you’ll start each day of your journey. Meet an indigenous community who you’ll work alongside on a development project, come face-to-face with wildlife on a nighttime jungle trek, try your hand at weaving traditional crafts and visit the home of a local family to learn about their culture.
