Reviews

quotes My volunteer work with children at an after-school project and at an animal shelter were experiences that truly touched my heart, and I would love to do it again one day. I enjoyed my Spanish teacher and classmates. Most students are young, but even those of us who are older will have a wonderful time. Go with an open, adventurous spirit (and warm clothes), and you will have a remarkable experience.

quotes The medical internship was perfect and the homestay was complete with all the hospitality and love as hoped. Being on my own, in another country certainly came with its doubts and worries from both me and my family back home but Proyecto Peru did everything possible to alleviate these worries and give me an experience of a lifetime. Thank you so much for everything! I couldn't be happier.

Maya, United States -Tripadvisor

quotes I spent more than 2 months in Proyecto Peru taking Spanish classes and I had an incredible time. Not only did my classes improve my Spanish greatly, they really allowed me to connect with the Cusquenian culture and to also meet some amazing people. If you want to know the places to visit off the beaten track, the foods to eat, how to get around town like a local while also learning Spanish, this is the place to be.
