About

On our South America Semester, you'll travel
in a fun, safe and supportive group of 14 students with two instructors to
facilitate and mentor your experience. Join us to gain insight into the lives
of indigenous Andean and Amazon communities while significantly improving your
conversational Spanish ability. Participate in worthwhile community-initiated
volunteer projects, wander the ancient streets of Quito and Cuzco, and be
astounded by Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and the incredible Galapagos Islands.
You will trek, raft, cycle, and snorkel through a range of environments from
Andean peaks to the Amazon. You will also have many opportunities for
meaningful connections with local people that will deepen your global
perspective and strengthen your Spanish skills. We support you to develop your
leadership skills, resourcefulness, resilience, and independence. Pacific
Discovery is committed to sustainability and ethical travel, which we'll be
practicing throughout the program.
