This project takes place in various locations throughout the enchanting country of Peru. Peru is located on the northeastern part of South America and shares borders with five other countries and the Pacific Ocean. The country is known for the historical site of Machu Picchu and its Incan history.
Peru is made up of three main geographic regions: the highlands of the Andes Mountains, the coast and the Amazon Jungle region. Destinations you’ll visit during this volunteering and touring project include the ancient city of Cuzco, Sacred Valley, the national park of Maras and Moray, and the ruins of pre-Colombian Machu Picchu.
In addition to exploring the best that Peru as to offer, participants in this program will be spending six days volunteering for the conservation of the Amazon rainforest. As a volunteer on this project you will be participating in various tasks at an ecological reserve under the supervision of leading nature experts and biologists.
Some of your tasks may include:
A typical day: Each day the schedule will vary depending on the current location and set activities for that day.
Internet: Internet is available in Cuzco for an additional fee.
Laundry: Laundry services are available in Cuzco for an additional fee.
Accommodations: Volunteers will be placed in a variety of shared, single-gender accommodations with up to four volunteers and private bathrooms.
