PERU

Get AMPED Abroad: Foodies, We Hope You're Hungry!

What if we told you that Peru has a rep for being the foodie capital of the Americas, melding the flavors of Spanish, African, and Asian influences to create popular delicacies such as the refreshing citrus taste of ceviche, savory lomo saltado, and the very much acquired taste of cuy (roasted guinea pig) . How does that whet your appetite?

Because Peruvian dishes tend to err on the heavy side, there is nothing like a good hike to rev up that cardio, and we can’t think of a more challenging route than the paths that lead to the spellbinding ruins of Machu Picchu.

Choose from TEN (10) community-based projects in or near Cusco.

2-12 Week Volunteer Placements beginning the first and third Monday of each month.

Volunteer Placement Options Include:

NOTE: Longer stays are possible for an additional fee.  

Alternate start dates can be accommodated.
