Where we are based in Peru
All of our Peru volunteer opportunities, except for Conservation, are based in Cuzco. Our Conservation Project is further away near the town of Puerto Maldonado in the Amazon Rainforest.
Cuzco is one of the most fascinating cities in the world. It was once the capital of the ancient Incan Empire. Today Cuzco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with archaeological remains and beautiful Spanish colonial architecture. It’s situated in the Urubamba Valley of the Andes mountain range.
Peru is famous for its food. You can enjoy different dishes like the national dish, ceviche (raw fish cured in citrus juices and spiced with chili peppers). You’ll get plenty of time to explore the city. Walk down cobblestoned streets, or take a hike in the city’s surrounding lush green mountains. And no visit to Peru is complete without visiting the incredible Machu Picchu.
Our Rainforest Conservation Project is located in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, at the Taricaya Ecological Reserve. The closest town is Puerto Maldonado, and Taricaya is a one-hour boat trip down the Madre de Dios River.
You’ll be surrounded by vast jungles filled with wildlife. Picture yourself waking up every morning to the sounds of the rainforest, listening to monkeys jumping from tree to tree. You’ll get to experience the beauty of the rainforest from the highest canopy walkway in South America.
