Proyecto Peru organizes weekly free activities in the Spanish school. The activities will be fun and sometimes you will also learn something. The main objective is to get to know other students, volunteers and interns with Proyecto Peru in a nice atmosphere. There is no fixed program for the activities, these are some of the most popular activities we organize.
With our welcome dinner, students will have the chance to enjoy a meal with the staff of the Spanish school and the other students, volunteers and interns in a local restaurant.
Normally we go to a typical Peruvian restaurant for the dinner. Some of the NGO and social projects we work with for volunteer work and internship placement have a restaurant to get funds for their projects. So many times we go to eat in these social restaurants, to support the good work they do in Cusco.
Peruvian cocktail class
Peru has a famous cocktail which we know how to prepare. Pisco Sour is a cocktail made with Pisco. You can't go to Peru without trying a Pisco Sour. So we will learn you how to prepare it. And of course how to drink it...
Always a hit. It doesn't matter if you can dance or not, everybody can take part in a beginners class of Salsa. Teachers from a professional salsa school in Cusco will come to the Spanish school and give a salsa class that will not only show you the basics, it's a lot of fun as well!
Contact us if you are interested in taking an intensive salsa course. We can arrange this for you.
