“More and more we realize how significant the experience of travel can become in people’s lives. We understand that travelling is not only a way to experience new places and destinations but also that it is a great opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on things and even discover ourselves. It is while travelling that we learn some of the best life lessons and achieve the opportunity to evolve and become better global citizens.
This is exactly why Latin Roots Travel Company is aiming at designing expeditions through Ecuador and other destinations in Latin America, with a focus on learning. From its beginnings, Latin Roots Travel has focused on new and different travel excursions.
We did not merely think of great places to visit but also of experiences that enrich the trip, seeking to create lifelong memories and, perhaps, change people’s lives.”

We built trips around a particular theme, interest, or specific need and include information and activities that raise participant’s awareness about conservation and sustainability and foster cross cultural understanding, thus making a trip a potentially educational experience. We take great care to design programs to be not only educational but also fun and entertaining!
We love to transcend conventional itineraries and sightseeing trips in order to provide our clients with the most authentic learning journeys. We are always innovating, looking for new sites and exciting experiences!
Educationally Oriented Programs
Our trips are designed to offer educational opportunities throughout, giving participants the chance to convert their trip in a meaningful experience and a great opportunity to learn something. Throughout the programs we set aside time for lectures or classes on different topics such as the country’s culture, human and natural history, ecology, biology, and current social, economic, and political situations. Hands-on activities and cultural immersion occupy also an important portion of the itineraries. Many of our programs include small projects that give participants an opportunity to be actively engaged, helping local communities with their specific needs.
Our programs are by no means “formal school classes” but are aimed to provide participants with opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning.
