Whether you learn Spanish at our Academy, volunteer at WaaW or both, FairStay offers you the chance to meet the Peruvian culture up close while staying in a Cuscanean middle class family. Homestay is a fairly cheap way of staying in Cusco with 3 authentic meals a day, prepared with passion and pride. It is also a good chance to practice every day Spanish and a great way to meet other students and volunteers from all over the world and share your unique experience. In the evening you can relax with the family or do your own thing.
In this homestay the grandmother Maruja is in charge of cooking and running the household. She shares the house with her daughter Liliana, her two grandchildren: Hania and Hans, and their dog Chimo. The kitchen and living room are quite small and very cosy. There is a big patio where you can enjoy your lunch or dinner in the open air. The house is located in Urb. Los Pinos, Wanchaq, in a small dead end street and is therefore very quiet. There are some small shops at a 5 minute walk. The house is also located really close to the WaaW project. (approximately a 10 minute walk) Internet (WiFi) is available at 10 Soles per week.
