Things to Do in Quito

Spend your Intern in Ecuador program living the colonial blended with indigenous Andean culture, situated in the mountains with plenty of greenery and beautiful 17th-century monasteries found in the old historic district. Quito has about a two million + population right now and is a big, capital city.  Our housing and classes are in the “La Mariscal” district, which is modern and urban, with a multitude of restaurants, hotels, banks, businesses, cafes and finance and government offices.  We discovered that our favorite area, though hard to actually live in, is the old historic center. As one of the first and longest standing Unesco heritage world sites, this is a treasure trove of churches, palaces, Plazas and Museums and killer cultural walking routes.  For those interested in the nightlife, this area also contains vibrant culinary scenes mixed with modern clubs, though pretty strictly controlled so by about 1 am, most are closed up.

This is a very rewarding program, where candidates work within the community like a local and assist companies and organizations in various areas. On your days off, discoveries are limitless:  the Galápagos Islands (a huge and growing surf culture at uncluttered beaches in the Montanita area) and the mouth of the Amazon is in Ecuador too.

Hear What Our Candidates Have to Say

“So far, I’ve gained linguistic abilities I didn’t have before, friends I didn’t have before, and eye opening, mind-expanding realizations that come from living in a different country. One sees how different everything is, which makes one re-examine his or her own country, instead of taking all institutions, values, cultural identities, political processes, etc., for granted. Living in a different country is an exercise in critical thinking.”

“The internship has been extremely great so far. There is one girl from Sweden who lives near me and is interning at the center as well, she is in Ecuador for a total of 7 weeks. Additionally, there are four other Italian volunteers who are at the Center for the entire year (October to October). Everyone has been extremely welcoming and kind and the children at the center are wonderful as well.
