All you need to know

Peru is one of the most exciting countries in the world, thanks to its great biodiversity, ancient history and colorful traditions. From the Pacific Ocean to the top of the Amazon River, there is a lot packed into the country’s small size.

CHI works with its trusted partner agency in Lima, Peru. Placements may also be available in other cities. Peru is a perfect destination for those that want to improve their Spanish skills. Our partners in Peru can assist you in finding Spanish classes as well as other ways to get involved with the local community in your free time. Past participants have incorporated adventure travel activities in Peru, trekked to Machu Picchu, hiked the Andes and explored the Amazon.

World Explorers creates a safe and fun environment for you to teach English in Peru. The aim of World Explorers is to get your students speaking better English. CHI provides basic tutoring materials for the casual English conversation lessons. You will be welcomed into your host family’s home as part of the “familia,” and in return, they will become your friends for life.

Going to Peru is exciting, exotic, and affordable for those traveling on a budget. The program fee for Peru starts at just $999.

What is the recommended age range for World Explorers traveling to this country?

Some of the overseas partner agencies we work with place restrictions on age. We recommend this destination for travelers ages 18-30. Some older candidates may be considered, but we cannot guarantee it.


Cost Calculator

We understand that keeping the World Explorers cost down is as important as the life-changing experience you will enjoy. Hence, we prepared a cost calculator which shows the cost of the program (excluding airfare) compared to the cost of a standard vacation. The prices are calculated according to the destination chosen, the arrival and departure dates, and the length of your stay.

The length of your stay is an especially important factor: the longer you stay abroad, the cheaper the cost per day becomes.

CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
