Also travelers will have a great opportunity to learn spanish and family unit. for example: Trujillo is a moderately large city in Northwestern Peru, very close to the Pacific Coast. Trujillo is a moderately large city in Northwestern Peru, very close to the Pacific Coast. Trujillo was founded in 1534 among 4 (of 3,500 archaeological sites in the valley) Chimu (& earlier remarkable cultures) settlements to enable the Spanish to ally with them against the Incas. Due to its geographic location it is also known for its seafood and the beaches of its famous surf and beach resort Huanchaco.

    Learn Spanish, Quechua or other languages at the universities, pan flutes, marinera & other folklore at the National Institute of Culture.

    If you prefer to learn Spanish in a setting slightly quieter than the hustle-and-bustle of Trujillo, try Huanchaco (about 20 minutes from Trujillo, should cost 1.50 Sol by bus) which has several good Spanish teachers who teach volunteers and tourists.

    It is a familly house in Trujillo - Peru, we can share a space to stay, food and some open air family activities. No additional salary or spending money will be provided. Only food and accommodations.
    Depending on the length of stay, I could allow you to use my sons room (upstairs) when living here. If it will be better, I also have a loft with a couch (also upstairs), and we could set it up as a small room (but has no door). You could either have a bathroom all to yourself downstairs, or share a bathroom with my daughter upstairs - whichever you prefer). I work at home during the day on a computer and have occasional meetings over the computer/phone. You are welcome to share food with us or purchase your own (we can set some space aside in the fridge and pantry storage area for your own foods if necessary). We do not have any strict dietary requirements. We have two large dogs, a turtle, and a fish.

    No parties or other guests will be allowed at home. Probably best for a single person, preferable female.
