Host Family / Homestay
Our host families belong to Peru’s middle class, although you should bear in mind that living standards in Peru are generally lower than in Europe or North America. Family homes are usually located no more than a 10 minute walk or bus ride from the school. If you choose to stay with a family, you should recognize that a certain degree of flexibility will be required to adjust to Peruvian customs and way of life. You get a private room, unless otherwise requested. There are 2 meals per day included at the host family (breakfast and lunch). A few families offer a private bath for their students, but usually the bathroom is shared with the family or with one or two other students.
Airport pickup: Upon request your host family will pick you up from the airport. Extra fee: $ 20.
Apartment rental: There are inexpensive accommodations in Cusco (apart-hotels, not apartments) that give the school special discounts.
