GAP-Ecuador prices

Below is a list of our current prices for our Global Awareness Program

Yanapuma is a non-profit organization and we aim to be as reasonably priced as possible, while striving to offer a guaranteed level of service to our students. Income from these programs goes towards our own development projects with indigenous and marginalized communities in Ecuador.

The one-month modules below can be combined to create the perfect Gap Year experience. We recommend the first month in Quito or Cuenca to establish a firm base, learn some Spanish and get accustomed to being in Latin America. From there you can add volunteering experiences around Ecuador and on the Galapagos Islands. Your program can be extended once you are here.

Programs in Quito and Cuenca offer the option of group Spanish classes, individual Spanish classes or no Spanish classes if you already speak Spanish.
