Peru community-based tourism

This article reads a little bit like an advertisement, but supposedly it’s for a non-profit travel agency so I guess that’s OK. They offer trips to Peru, and they call it community-based tourism. It’s not cheap and it doesn’t sound easy:

Kiss the fluffy white towels goodbye and stay with a family in the village of Vicos to best understand a new culture by exchanging customs, cultures, food and even daily chores.

I bet that after a homestay in a small Peruvian farming village, you’ll have had a pretty unique travel experience with some good stories to tell your friends.

As for me, I fly from New York to Seoul tonight on Asiana. I’ll be blogging again when I recover from the trip – give me a day or two!

    Well I always hire a travel agency when I travel to any country because I feel more secure and enjoy all the attractions that the country offers me. That I did in Peru, and I hired TurPeru that made tours to Cuzco, Trujillo and Iquitos. The care I received was the best; always concerned that satisfies my itinerary without any problem. Further, it is not expensive, I recommend it.
