5 Reasons why you will love Peru

Going abroad is a big step and super exciting. A new culture, different people, beautiful landscapes and unknown food. All these new impressions are high impact factors on our state of mind. Peru is the country where all these impressions mix together, and make you want to stay. What makes Peru so attractive? Here are 5 main reasons why you will love Peru 😊

1. Peru is extremely beautiful

Peru has one of the most diverse landscapes in the world, and is extremely beautiful. The Andean mountains, the Rainforest and a long coastline. But Peru also offer you rich and diverse cultural attractions: Inca ruins, beautifully colored textiles and handcraft are just some highlights. On top of that, Peruvians are generally very kind and helpful people. They love their country and will make sure that you have a great experience.

2. Cusco: the archaeological capital of South America

The most famous Inca ruins are spread around Cuzco and the Sacred Valley. Cuzco is the gateway for an unforgettable trekking to Machu Picchu. We can help you organize a tour that fits you. The impressive landscape of the Sacred Valley is also worth discovering and just a 45min bus ride away from Cuzco. But already in Cuzco you will stumble over Inca ruins, as the former Inca capital is still peppered with them. In our free City Tour we will show you some of Cuzco’s secrets. The UNESCO placed the City center of Cuzco on the World Heritage list, and Peru Volunteer fully agrees with that move! The cathedral on Plaza de Armas, old Inca walls and the San Pedro market are waiting for you…

3. The perfect place to learn Spanish

Peru is a great place to learn Spanish. Speaking Spanish is the best way to get to know the Peruvian culture and to be able to act on your own. Peru is the perfect country when you are starting to learn Spanish. Peruvians tend to speak clearly and slowly, and they don’t have strong dialects. After your Spanish course you will be able to shop by yourself, get around and chat with people. It’s easy to get into a conversation with Peruvians, as they are interested in people from other countries. Your fear to talk Spanish will also slowly disappear, and it is the perfect preparation for volunteer work.

4. Peru is diverse

It is impossible to describe Peru in a few words. The Andean country is so versatile and has so much to offer! It’s the perfect going-abroad destination: the incredible beautiful nature, the impressive culture and history, the friendliness of people, the good food … all this will let your heart beat faster. Riding on a horseback through 3.500 m high mountains? Or rafting in the rivers of the Sacred Valley? It’s up to you! There are so many possibilities to experience Peru and you decide what fits you best.

5. Is Peru something for me?
