Destination Overview

Spanish Coloniel Meets Modern

Peru is rich in history, but also has modern aspects such as its skyline with towering glass skyscrapers. Peru's population is an eclectic mix of ethnic groups and backgrounds, which makes for a fabulously diverse melting pot of cuisine, culture, and language. There is quite a large expat population in Peru, especially centered around the financial district.

Average Cost

Several hundred dollars per month for private/international school tuition, plus registration fees, book rental fees, and occasionally even supplies (e.g., toilet paper, chalk, etc.) are required to be purchased for the school.
