Facts about Peru

Vacations and international trips to Peru offer visitors a unique blend of cultural experiences. In this South American destination, tourists can discover the rhythmic sounds of almost-African music, view impressive Catholic churches, and admire textiles inspired by times long past. International tourists are also greeted with astounding views in Peru. The varied landscape offers snowy mountains, large sand dunes, picturesque volcanoes, and rocky Pacific outcroppings. Scenes are made livelier by the appearance of bright tropical birds and other impressive wildlife. Of course, in this expanse of inspiring culture and terrain, volunteer vacationers and humanitarians can find opportunities to make a difference while on vacation.

Voluntourists packing for Peru can plan to help several non-profit organizations in South America. For humanitarians interested in helping children in need, the lodging at Aqua Expeditions collects donated school supplies for children of the river inhabitants; visitors can donate school supplies, including pens, crayons, notebooks, and more. Volunteer vacationers interested in responsible tourism and helping communities receive medical care can donate medical supplies to the Community First Aid Center.
