Photos of Proyecto Peru Centre, CuscoStaying in Peru in one of our carefully selected traditional families is one of the truly outstanding features of our Spanish language study and volunteer program. The homestay program involves experiencing the culture of the people and provides the advantage of being completely immersed both in the Spanish language, and in the traditional hospitality of a family in Peru. It also provides more opportunity to practice Spanish and therefore enhances a student's ability to converse in Spanish.

In case the student or volunteer has any special requests, Proyecto Peru will do its best to satisfy any specific needs you may have (vegetarian, allergic to pets, diabetics, etc). We monitor the students and volunteers through regular inspections at home. Homestay includes full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

You can also choose to stay in a private or shared flat. Ideal for independent students.

All accommodation includes airport pick-up.
