Peru Accommodation

We at Host Family Peru have many years experience of placing students and travellers in host families. All our host families are known to us, have been interviewed and the accommodation they offer is always inspected. All our families are very carefully selected with respect to safety of neighborhoods, proximity to public transportation and welcoming ability of the host family. Through our home stay program, lifetime friendships are being created all the time resulting in a greater mutual understanding and awareness of each other’s culture.

It is therefore very important that you let us know if you have any special requirements that need to be taken into consideration for your host family placement.

The host family placement confirmation will be sent to you at least one week in advance and will give you a brief description about the host family (occupation, children, pets, smoker/non smoker).
