What else is included depends on the project type chosen. We have divided our prices into 4 categories:

Projects within Quito: These projects are located in Quito and you can choose your accommodation: stay at our cosy Student house (Accommodation only) or with an Ecuadorian host family (meals included on weekdays).

Rest of Ecuador Projects: These projects are located across the country and are active in different areas, both social and nature. The project cost includes a project donation fee, accommodation and all meals. The type of accommodation, in a volunteer house or with a host family, differs per project.

Animal Projects: This is a separate category for these types of projects, due to the higher project costs, as normally the projects sponsor animal food and shelter costs with the volunteer donation. The project cost includes a donation fee and accommodation. If meals are included, varies per project.

Galapagos Projects: Our Galapagos Projects cost includes the return flight from Quito to Galapagos, overnight in Quito if flight does not leave on Saturday but Sunday, accommodation for on the Islands but no meals, the airport pick-up upon arrival, an island-based volunteer coordinator, accommodation only and a project donation fee. For participants combining our Discover Ecuador program with a Galapagos project, we recommend to start from Guayaquil, which involves an additional cost due to higher hotel costs. The return flight can be booked according to the wishes of the volunteer if they want additional days to travel the Galapagos.
