  • Description

    Description

    We are a local family from a small village called San Juan de Chuccho located inside the beautiful Colca Canyon. My father takes care of our home. We have set up a small, local museum in the Colca Canyon close to where tourists trekking the canyon pass daily. The museum has local artifacts including dried food specimens, traditional garments, blankets and ceramics.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn the local history while working in the museum as well as experience the local farming lifestyle. My father does not speak english so volunteers will also have the opportunity to improve their spanish and Quechua! We require that our volunteers speak spanish at an advanced level.

    Volunteers will have their own room in my familie's small adobe home where they will sleep on a bamboo bed.

    Workaway volunteers will eat with my father who prepares several different foods made with quinoa, grains, fried trout, alpaca meat, avocado and fruits. Daily they will help prepare and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Colca Canyon is the deepest in the world and is full of trail for hiking. The river passes close to where my familie's home is located and during certain times of the year it is possible to fish for trout. To get in and out of the canyon you must trek approximately 3-4 hours up/down the canyon wall or take a 4 hours car ride.
