Review of Peru Vivential by Danny Klein
Best Volunteer Opportunity in Peru
I just finished spending one month volunteering with PeruVivential and can say that it was hands down the best experience of my life. William is an amazing organizer who does everything in his power to make your experience both comfortable and enjoyable. If you like to teach and work with children, I highly recommend volunteering with this organization. I had the opportunity to spend my weekdays teaching English to children during the day and adults at night with a nice break in the middle of the day allowing me to explore the city, visit the nearby beaches of Huanchaco, or just enjoy the Peruvian Sun. The weekends were also amazing as William organized trips for us such as visiting the ruins of Chan Chan, surfing the waves of Huanchaco, or sandboarding the dunes of Trujillo. Additionally, I had the opportunity to spend a couple weekends travelling to other amazing sites in Peru such as Machu Picchu and Huaraz as the Trujillo airport is a short 15 minute ride away. Finally, the apartment was comfortable and contained all basic amenities such as hot water, a fridge/freezer, and wifi. I highly recommend this NGO for anyone looking to volunteer in South America!
