Guatemala

Guatemala is the heart of indigenous culture in Central America.

Here you can witness not only how traditional culture has adapted to globalization, but also relive the history enshrined in its many archaeological sites. The “land of perpetual spring” has a rich history that stretches from pre-Colombian times to recent peace accords that have set this country on the road to reconciliation and harmony.

Peru

Peru is a diverse land: miles of untouched coasts, snow-capped Andean peaks, and vast Amazon jungle. This geographic variety has led to the evolution of one of the most complex and delicious cuisines in the world. But Peru is much more than spectacular meals, it’s home to welcoming people eager to share their culture and history with you. Discover the Andes Mountains and Machu Picchu, the original capital of the Inca Empire. Today, the culture of the Quechua people lives on as an echo of their ancestors’ civilization. Experience first-hand Peru’s culture and traditions, which have survived for centuries.

Galapagos

Arguably the greatest destination on the planet for nature travelers is the Galapagos archipelago. With rare and friendly wildlife found at every turn, these islands unveil the beauty and intricacies of the natural world in a truly unique manner. Located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, this island chain is the second largest marine reserve in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While there are small towns on a couple of the islands, the strict protection of flora and fauna allows us to experience an ecosystem free of human degradation.

Tanzania

Welcome to the heart and soul of East Africa.

Live and volunteer alongside locals, learning about their diversity of experiences. Whether it’s the nomadic Masai or the neighborly Chagga, the friendly, peaceful mix of religions and tribes makes Tanzania an ideal place to celebrate our shared humanity.

Voluntourism: Working with elephants in Thailand

Thailand

Thailand’s unique past has created a present that can only be experienced in person. Since Europeans never colonized this country, it still retains its diverse history of Buddhist traditions and philosophies — including that of sanuk. Loosely translated as “fun,” sanuk is more about striving to achieve satisfaction and pleasure from whatever you do — which you’ll experience in Thai life amidst the rapid embrace of globalization. Come experience life in the “Land of Smiles,” and find your palate delighted, your senses heightened, and your spirit recharged.
