I really loved time here in Buenos Aires. Met so many great people. I'm going back later this year to find work. I love Buenos Aires! Matthew Rocket

The seductive and bustling capital of Buenos Aires is a city rich in cultural heritage, renowned for its cosmopolitan, chic attitude. Buenos Aires hosts a surprisingly European feel, reminiscent of Paris with its chic tree-lined avenues and wonderful plazas which have a beguiling, faded elegance. Certainly one of Latin America's most popular cities, there is plenty to keep you entertained - day and night…

The elusive spirit of Argentina is present everywhere in Buenos Aires. The national dance, the Tango, is perhaps the best expression of that spirit - practiced in dance halls, parks, open plazas, and ballrooms, it is a dance of intimate separation and common rhythm, combining both an elegant reserve and an exuberant passion.


Florianópolis, or Floripa as it's known, is the capital city of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil. It is composed of one main island, Ilha de Santa Catarina, and a number of surrounding small islands. Floripa is a natural treasure with truly exceptional sights, like beautiful lagoons, stunning beaches, rolling mountains lush with Atlantic rainforest, soft white dunes and an array of small offshore islands. It is a favourite summer destination for many Brazilians and has been quoted by Veja Magazine as the best place to live in Brazil!

Floripa has something for everyone, from authentic and rustic fishing villages to surfer's paradises, high-end Brazilian summer getaways, pristine and untouched nature reserves just minutes away from modern shopping malls and cinema complexes. It boasts an amazing 42 beaches, and surfers and aspiring-surfers will be pleased to know that Floripa (as Florianópolis is called for short) has some of the best waves in all of Brazil.

Other outdoor activities include kite-surfing, scuba diving, sand-boarding, hiking, hang gliding, mountain biking, rock climbing and horseback riding!

Ecuador is small and big - small in size and big in bio-diversity. The Amazon and the Andes draw millions of visitors and so do the fascinating Galápagos islands which lie some 600 miles off the coast. Ecuador is a must-see country to explore. We have projects located in Quito, the vibrant capital city, and the fabulous Galápagos islands.

The city of Quito is very friendly with lots to do in the evenings, including an array of restaurants that cater for every taste in food.

I had so many experiences there that I could NEVER have gotten anywhere else. Ecuador is a beautiful country andIi met so many people from Ecuador and all over the world. A couple of my friends and I went to the Amazon rainforest for a weekend and it was an experience that I can NEVER forget! We went to a lake in the Amazon and we swam around and none of us have ever felt more free and in touch with the nature around us. At the Jamu Lodge we did not have electricity which was cool because we did everything by candle light and that was perfect for when the tour guide would tell us his jungle stories. That was an experience that I thank god everyday that I had the chance to have. Sarah Murphy, Ecuador Care Project
