Cusco is Amazing Vacation Work in Peru

For anyone who wants to volunteer abroad then considering Peru as the main destination is a very right choice. Peru experienced a tourist boom; there are many amazing tourist sites there. Volunteers can enjoy the beauty of the remains of the Inca Empire after a week of serving the local community. Cusco Peru is very suitable place as a volunteer program because its condition requires help; you will find children under the age of work for their families. It is true that in Peru it offers modern cities like Lima, but this country has many poor communities. They live in the foothills and also in the highlands of the Andes. The natural conditions of the hills make the level of economic assistance given to poor people experiencing obstacles. This clearly affects their lives such as education, health, economy, etc.

Cusco Peru offers a number of opportunities for volunteers who would rather spend their free time on vacation after working and helping local communities to improve their lives and future. You will find a lot of satisfaction when you volunteer in Cusco, just imagine the beauty of Machu Picchu. This tourist spot has attracted all overseas travelers, and you can enjoy it every week. Entering Machu Picchu, you will be presented with beautiful scenery, stunning architectural buildings, and feel the magical atmosphere of the place. The beauty of Machu Picchu cannot be replaced with funds that you donate for this volunteer tour.

Cusco is the right place for a vacation, especially if you are interested in history. Cusco is an ideal place for tourism and charity, besides Machu Picchu you can also visit the Sacred Valley to find out about agricultural technology during the Inca empire, Montaña de Siete Colores, etc. There are a number of projects available that you can help, they are teaching english, therapeutic support, empowering women, orphanages, health care, etc.

If you are an English language expert, then Cusco Peru is the right place. As we know that Cusco has a variety of tourist attractions that are in demand by foreign tourists. They usually use English to communicate; if children can understand English, they will easily communicate with foreign tourists. Being able to speak and read English is an advantage for Cusco Peru’s children and it will make it easier for them to get a job as they progress.

The orphanage offers care for children who don’t have parents. As a volunteer in Cusco Peru, your work will involve the support of general staff such as helping prepare food, helping with homework, and helping staff members with recreational activities. You can also help them with English, which is an important skill in Peru.

Volunteers are professional people who are used as role models by children; they consider you to be an exemplary figure. There are many children who have bad experiences at home, their families are alcoholics or live in poverty, and children are victims of violence and abuse. Children need a good figure from volunteers; volunteers must be able to eliminate the view that not all parents have bad behavior.


Why You Should Visit Belize

By Aniket Singh (Author of Intern Abroad This Summer)

Belize is a beautiful country on the Carribean Sea. It is almost a tenth the size of California but has a population of only three hundred thousand (300,000). To put this in perspective, I live in a city called Santa Clara in California and 300,000 is the population of that city alone. Imagine a country like Belize with that small a population. What that essentially means is that the country is pretty much untouched and pristine from the days when Christopher Columbus set foot on the Americas.


From beautiful beaches, pristine islands, the second largest barrier reef in the world to adventure activities like zip-lining,cave-tubing, scuba driving, snorkelling and fishing… Belize offers it all.

Here are 5 reasons why you should visit Belize:

1. Belize has some of the best beaches in the world and is one of the best sites in the world for scuba diving & snorkelling.  Belize has the second largest barrier reef in the world and it is considered a UNESCO world heritage site. For anyone who loves swimming among beautiful fishes and other marine wildlife, snorkelling in Belize is a must! The Deep Blue Hole is a divers ultimate paradise and an absolute panoramic beauty.

2. Belize is  the Mayan heartland.

Belize has the highest concentration of Maya archaeological sites in Mesoamerica. Xunantunich in San Ignacio, Lamanai and Altan Ha are the most popular. In addition, other sites such as Tikal in Guatemala and Chichen Itza in Mexico are only a few hours by drive.

3. Nature, Mountains, Waterfalls and rivers!

Belize is a top destination for seeing tropical rainforests. The lush green rainforests , mountains and flowing rivers create some amazing landscapes. Ziplining is a popular tourist attraction. For the slightly more adventurous,  there is cave tubing. You enter a river on a floating tube and then flow with the river as it meanders through miles of underground caves. The guides take care of you all throughout the journey. And finally, Belize has ample fresh water(lakes& rivers) for you to just jump into and enjoy a relaxing swim.

4. Simple and good food.

Belizian cuisine is an wholesome, delicious and healthy. What I remember the most about Belize is picking avacadoes & mangoes straight off the trees by the freeway and eating them off then and there. Apart from that, Mestizo, Maya, Creole, and Garifuna people, all have their foods integrated into Belizian cuisine. You can expect to eat fryjack and refried beans for breakfast and Rice and Beans with fish for lunch.

5. There are plenty of beautiful islands.

There are many beautiful islands all along the Belize Barrier Reef. These are a short boat ride from the coastline. The islands called “Caye” are mostly uninhabited. One of these, Ambergris Caye has consistenly been voted the most beautiful island in the world.
