TESOL Jobs in Ecuador

Bordered by Colombia to the north, Peru to the east and south and the Pacific Ocean to the west, Ecuador is the smallest country in the Andean region. Despite this it covers a wide range of geographical features from the coastal plains to the peaks of the Andes, the rainforest of the Amazon and the Galápagos Islands made famous by Charles Darwin. Its capital city sits at 2,850 meters above sea level on the slopes of an active volcano. It’s the highest capital city in the world and was one of the first to be named as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its large and well preserved historic center.

One of the main attractions of Ecuador is its rich biodiversity with thousands of species of plants, insects and animals and hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Ecuador every year, predominantly to visit the Galápagos Islands. Other places of interest to nature lovers are the city of Baños de Agua Santa and the Cotopaxi National Park. Baños de Agua Santa is a city known as the “Gateway to the Amazon” and is surrounded by a number of beautiful waterfalls. It is also a great place for adventure sports such as kayaking, rafting, canyoning and bridge jumping. The country also has several coastal resorts where you can enjoy surfing, sunsets and more.

TEFL Ecuador

In Ecuador, the main centers for TEFL employment are the large cities of Quito, Guayaquil and Cuenca but that is not to say jobs can’t be found elsewhere in the country. English students in Ecuador tend to be either university students or business professionals. Ecuador is also a great place from which to start your job hunt in the wider South American region.
