I am spending a month in Quito doing a volunteer program before starting a backpacking trip from Cuzco. I am having a really difficult time finding a flight from Quito to Cuzco that is less than $600 and 12 hours flight time. Is this possible? Or is this a difficult route?

Thanks for the help!

Do you mean like there are direct flights? In that case, the answer is no.
Not sure about prices, but from Quito I am guessing every flight will be via Lima, so it all depends on the time on Lima Airport you have to wait. Total flying time will be around 3-4 hours I think, so 12 hours in total seems rather long indeed.

Maybe you can check the airlines mentioned on the Cuzco airport wiki page to check details about prices and schedules.
