As a volunteer of Active Traveler Peru, you can stay in a Peruvian guest family. But if you want some independence, we can offer you accommodation in a hotel, it's up to you.
Homestay guest family
A homestay in Peru in one of our carefully selected local guest families is one of the truly outstanding features of our internship 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 the opportunity to practice Spanish and therefore enhances a student's ability to converse in Spanish.
In case you have any special requests, Active Traveler Peru will do its best to satisfy any specific needs you may have (like vegetarian, allergic to pets, diabetics). We monitor our host families through regular inspections at home. As internet is getting more and more common in Peru, most families have an internet access you can use. Homestay with a guest family includes full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
While most of the accommodations do have internet facilities, we cannot assure you about getting WiFi. However, there shall be internet cafes near your accommodation.
Traveler safety is a top priority for us and we have clear standards for risk management on each program. You can feel confident that you are placed with trustworthy institutions, organizations and families that have been screened by us.
