    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Interact and enjoy cultural exchange with people from around the world. Explore Arequipa, which embodies a rich mix of the indigenous and Spanish colonial cultures. With 468 years of history since its founding, examples of Spanish colonial architecture can be found throughout the center of the city and several surrounding districts. UNESCO has declared it Human Heritage site. Catholic churches are scattered throughout the center of the city. Some ancient houses have been refurbished by the local authorities and serve as living museums. An example of this are the so-called "Tambos" located at Puente Bolognesi street.

    Hello! My name is Evelin and I have a hostel in the city of Arequipa (Peru) that before the pandemic was very famous and attracted people with very good vibes and great energy. After many months of standing now it is time to reactivate. And due to the economic blow of the pandemic, I no longer have the workforce I had before the pandemic and that is why i am looking to volunteers that help us in reception and cleaning. the work is 20 hours per week (4 hours per day and 2 days free). Minimum 2 weeks. I offer room for 2 people, breakfast.

    Soy Evelin y tengo en la ciudad de Arequipa (Peru) un hostel que antes de la pandemia era muy famoso y atraia gente de muy buena onda y gran energia.

    Despues de muchos meses parados ahora es hora de reactivarnos. Y debido al golpe economico de la pandemia ya no cuento con el personal de trabajo que tenia antes de la pandemia. Por eso necesito ayuda de dos voluntarias.

    El total de horas que necesito es de 20 horas semanales. Ofrezco en el hostel una habitacion que podria compartirse con otro voluntari@ (maximo 2 voluntari@s de ayuda en el hostel) y desayuno.

    The city is part of the so called "Southern Peru Tourist Corridor", together with Nazca, Puno and Cusco. In contrast to these other cities, Arequipa is an example of the Spanish and mestizo culture developed in Peru. There are no Inca artifacts or ruins in the city.
    In the winter it is warmer than in the summer. It is nicknamed the 'white city' (la ciudad blanca, in Spanish), because many of the buildings in the area are built of sillar, a white stone. This rock was quarried from the many volcanoes that surround the city, including the towering El Misti. Ask for local help to identify Misti, Chachani and PichuPichu, the three volcanoes surrounding the city.
    Arequipa is a city in the Southern Coastal region of Peru just below the edge of the Altiplano, at 2380 meters above sea level and surrounded by three impressive volcanoes. It's Peru's second most important city (after Lima), and the second most popular among tourists (after Cuzco).
