New York ELC seeks qualified EFL teachers to begin mid-September for a minimum of five months.
Catamayo: There are about 30000 inhabitants and it is known as the town of eternal sunshine. Weather is around 26-33 degrees most of the year round. As it is smaller than Loja there is a friendly feel to it and you can walk into the city center quite comfortably. There is a water park really close by on the outskirts of Catamayo.
