What We Don't Like
Basic living conditions at homestay (small room, plain food, etc)
Takes a few days to get used to the high altitude
Many international tourists in Cusco
Cusco suffers from a chronic water shortage and most of the families do not have a water tank. Also hot water installations might not meet the western standards. Students need to take this situation into account.
Mixed nationalities and ages, with many students coming from Western and Northern Europe, North America, Brazil, Germany, the UK and Australia. University students, professionals and independent travelers
