Homestay accommodation is highly recommended, because living with a local hostfamily gives many advantages, such as:
- Practice your Spanish in real situations, every day.
- Peruvian hostfamilies are very friendly, you will enjoy a nice stay with them, they will show you the city, talk a lot, share family activities like birthdays, etc.
- You will have good food, the Peruvian cuisine is very rich because it is a mix of the Inca cuisine with European, and Asian cuisine. Furthermore eating with a host family is healthier than eating at a local restaurant. Students who eat outside are most susceptible to illnesses of the stomach and getting the common Traveler’s Diarrhea, parasites, typhus, etc.
- Host families always have the goodwill to give students advice about nice places in the city, places to avoid, pubs, discotheques, how save money in the city, etc.
