The volunteer program is set up well. You stay in central Lima, away from the tourist zone, and get to have a more authentic Peruvian experience. Not to mention the program is centered around learning whatever you want about the country, and writing about it, so you get to experience what you want and share it with others. The only difficulty might be getting around depending on your traveling experience, but the Program Coordinator is more than helpful in that regard. Plenty of interaction with the local community too, from dancing to family dinners etc. Overall, I had a great time with Karikuy.
