Andean Discovery co-owner, Damon Corkin, traveled through the Andes and Amazon of Ecuador on a high school trip when he was 15, a life-changing experience to say the least. He was inspired to major in Spanish in college and explore and live in Spanish-speaking countries. Years later, he moved to Ecuador and founded Andean Discovery, dedicated to promoting experiential learning through educational journeys like the one that had such an impact on his life.
For over 10 years, Damon and his Ecuadorian wife and co-owner, Angela, have worked with teachers and schools to design authentic trips that allow students to immerse themselves in local cultures and explore one of the most biologically diverse regions on the planet. Whether you are learning about ancient civilizations in Peru, pondering salt-snorting iguanas in the Galapagos, or making improvements to a rural school in Ecuador, Andean Discovery will be with you every step of the way. Expert guides and staff meticulously coordinate all aspects of your trip to ensure a safe and unforgettable adventure.

We understand the needs of school groups and are passionate about working with you to take students beyond the classroom.
