    Peru Volunteer Program: Accommodations/Meals/Field Support

    Volunteer in Peru

    In Global Crossroad’s volunteer in Peru program, weekly fees include management of volunteers’ meal plans and accommodations throughout projects and travel options. Three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be provided and will consist of local ingredients and feature traditional cuisine choices for Peru. Our meal program can accommodate vegetarian needs; however, we are not able to provide for other dietary restrictions. Food and drinks outside of meal times are the volunteer’s responsibility. In most cases, there are restaurants and markets nearby the homes in which our volunteers stay.


    Volunteers in Peru working in Cusco stay with well-screened and respected host family or in a hostel. Each host family is socially respected and already has experience hosting international volunteers. Host families offer a safe home and shared bathroom facilities with running water and a “western” style toilet. Volunteers can to do their own laundry at the house or the host family may offer to wash it for a small fee. Your host family will prepare three meals a day for you that are typical to Peru. If you will be out of the house during lunch, you can ask your host family for a to-go lunch or eat out on your own. Host families prepare meals that are traditional to Peru. Volunteers in Peru working in Manu will either live with a host family or in volunteer bungalows with indoor western-style bathroom and a shared kitchen and living space.


    A unique and important part of volunteer work in Peru is our in-country support provided to the volunteers. We put safety and comfort first as we deliver enriching and consistent experiences for our international travelers. Our support is multi-faceted while volunteers are in Peru and our staff is in contact with our volunteers on a regular basis either with face-to-face visits or via phone/email. Key support comes from our country coordinator and in-country field staff. These individuals are employed by our company and committed to ensuring your experience the best it can be. Your chosen project staff and host family offers support as well, and they are familiar with working with international volunteers and accustomed to answering questions and providing guidance. Volunteers also have access to our country coordinator’s mobile number for emergencies. With longer assignments, our field staff visits regularly (every 2-4 weeks) to ensure the experience is meeting your expectations. Sometimes an assignment may be too far to visit physically, so staff members will touch-base via phone/email. You are also welcome to stop in the offices at any time. You are never alone.

    Specific details regarding accommodations, food and contact details for our local coordinator will be provided in personalized volunteer placement documentation prior to arrival.
