EcoTeach is committed to conservation and cultural awareness through education. Their hands-on activities make long lasting impressions on the communities we visit and the participants themselves.  

They bring groups, individuals, and families to Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru for expeditions that focus on conservation work, cultural exchange, and guided tours. They give travelers the opportunity to work side-by-side with local community members and immerse themselves in the beauty of each destination.

Making A Difference

EcoTeach carefully selects a variety of locally operated projects focused on conservation and ecology. Their travelers volunteer thousands of hours saving sea turtles, planting trees, and improving endangered macaw habitat.  They also support rural schools and communities by contributing both time and financial resources.
