ShuarHands, Inc provides travel opportunities for those who wish to participate in our humanitarian missions while experiencing adventures with experienced guides.

Travel dates are designed for the traditional vacation times: spring (March/April) and summer (July/August) The price of the tours are reasonable. Price does not include round trip U.S. airfare, airport exit-security tax, some meals, suggested inoculations, flight insurance, personal items, and souvenirs.

First you will tour Quito, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visit the Equator. Feel the pull of the two hemispheres while trying to balance an egg on a nail.
