ELIZABETH GALLARDO

PROGRAM COORDINATOR

I spent over two years working in the Galapagos Islands and was lucky enough to see the most unique place on the planet. You will be amazed by the incredibly varied and unusual scenaries. You can walk on a rugged landscape similar to the surface of the moon, and explore some of the red, white or black sandy beaches of the Galapagos Islands. The underwater world is very impressive, hosting many different types of marine and plant life. It is definitely a once in a life time experience. If you need advice just ask me!
