Machu Picchu isn’t the only wonder here

Explore a land of warm, friendly people, rich in flavors, landscapes, culture, and history.

Whether you’re curious about where your Spanish language skills could take you, life in a Latin American metropolis, or the legacy of indigenous peoples, you’ll find the answers in Peru.

IFSA will help, with activities and excursions that bring the essence of Peruvian life to the surface. Learn with Peruvian students at a prestigious Latin American university. Explore the America’s oldest pre-Incan city settlement. Snack on crunch cancha. Sip rich local coffee and Andean mint tea. Experience street festivals.

It’s all part of exploring a melting port of cultures, created as immigrants arrived here from Africa, Asia and Europe.
