Yes, I recommend this program

Loved it !

I loved Peru as a country and with camps you get to really immerse yourselfs in the community life of the indeginous people and truly be a part of these special communities . The people on camps with me became like a family to me over the 3months couldn't have had more fun. The great thing is you get to be part and help these communities but also get to see the amazing cities in Peru on the weekends and have the freedom to explore . I would 100% recommend you do worth while long lasting work and get to enjoy this amazing country at the same time .

What would you improve about this program?
I would add more time in Cuzco because it's such an amazing city and you need time to appreciate it . Also maybe try and add a bit more variety in the work I did a lot of plastering work .
