Destination Peru

From the dense jungle heat of the Amazon to breath-taking glacial peaks, Peru truly does have it all. Whether you're tucking into some of Peru's delicious food or following big cat tracks in the world's largest rainforest, the ancient ways of South America's third largest country couldn't be any further removed from life in the West.

Peru is perfect for active travellers who want to see something completely different during their free time, like a trip to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu or Chan Chan, the largest pre-Columbian ruins in South America. If you love bizarre and colourful wildlife or unfamiliar surroundings, Peru is definitely the place for you to start your TEFL adventure.
