How is the day to day and what will I do as a volunteer?

A typical day of volunteering begins with breakfast at the accommodation or wherever the volunteers want, since they have common areas to cook. Volunteers go to the day’s project or location by bus (about 40 minutes), where they meet with the local coordinator to see what activities are planned for the day.

Throughout the morning each volunteer contributes to the assigned task. A stop is made for lunch and, depending on the needs, they continue with the tasks or have free time.

What can I see during the weekend?

One of the main tourist spots in Peru and known as the “Navel of the World”, besides being one of the most important places in South America, is Cusco.

Those who know the city see it as a charming and mystical city, due to its streets, unique churches and its colonial structure. In addition to the humility of its people.

I suppose you have heard of Machu Picchu… I tell you, from Cusco you can reach this spiritual place. One of the archaeological jewels of the world. You cannot stop seeing this impressive place.

You can also take a tour of the plaza of arms in Cusco or visit Sacsayhuaman.

Another point that you cannot miss is the Manú National Park, a place where you can find the greatest biodiversity in the world, where native communities still live and maintain their traditions. It is also a place that embraces exotic animals and beautiful landscapes, all of this only in the Peruvian Amazon. The Manú National Park is ideal for any volunteer, adventurer or person who likes and loves nature, travel and responsible tourism.

Do not forget to take your camera to show us all the corners that you have discovered!
