We provide Breakfast and lunch, along with a cooking class on Saturdays. Night and weekend the volunteers are on their own.

From learning about their city and surrounding cities, (in the city tours we provide) they will be able to identify a plethora of local restaurant to visit.
Although we offer weekly excursions, Lambayeque (our city) has cultural and beaches in every direction. Pimentel only 15 min away is the top destinations for fun, food and a great beach with night parties.
