The GATA team has been operating outdoor adventures in Ecuador since 2010, and we are experts in traveling safely in Ecuador. We host more than a hundred travelers each year in Ecuador, and we hold ourselves and all of our providers to the highest standards of safety, sanitation, and reliability. We only work with the very best providers with whom we have personal relationships and trust as our own family. Moreover, our trip leaders have extensive experience in group management, youth development, first aid, and crisis management. Comprehensive first aid kits are with our trip leaders at all time, and we have emergency plans for any situation that could foreseeably arise on one of our adventures. We also have an in country bilingual Emergency Contact who is available 24/7 to troubleshoot any situation or emergency and act as a liaison to parents and families back home. At GATA, we don’t cut corners or skimp on quality, and safety is our number one priority.
