More Information »»

Cusco, also known as “the city of miracles”, is the historic capital of the Incan Empire. Cusco is the most visited city in Peru, and one of the most visited hotspots in South America. The city of Cusco is located southeast of the Peruvian Andes Mountains and has approximately 1.2 million inhabitants. The world-famous archaeological site of Machu Picchu (“Old Mountain”), which was once inhabited by the Incas, is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and just one of many treasures surrounding Cusco. The Sacred Valley of Urubamba, a mysterious valley where you can find other ancient Incan ruins, boasts some of the most charming landscapes in Peru.

Many places in Cusco create an exceptional, international atmosphere that encourages visitors to extend their stay. The most popular site is the Plaza de Armas, which features beautiful colonial buildings. Around this plaza, you will find delicious restaurants, bars, hostels, hotels, beautiful houses with typical Spanish balconies, and many small streets that invite you to stroll around and discover the location’s unique history.

Although Cusco has rapidly developed its infrastructure due to the growing tourism sector, it has not lost its historical charm, as indigenous culture remains distinctly influential. It is definitively worth a visit!

During your stay at the Spanish school in Cusco, we want you to get involved with the local culture as much as possible. We recommend that you take advantage of a homestay to practice your Spanish and be exposed to local culture. Middle-class families are carefully selected and provide each student with a private room and 2 meals per day. Do not assume that you are too old for a homestay, as many of our students are older than their host "parents." For most students, their homestay is one of the most rewarding experiences they have while studying Spanish in Peru. Breakfast and dinner are served by the family and are included in the accommodation costs.

Another accommodation option is the student residence in Cusco. With this option, a private room is also included, but you would be responsible for preparing your own food. Common areas like kitchen, living, and dining room are shared with your roommates. Your accommodation will be reserved from the Sunday prior to the start of your Spanish course until Saturday after the last day of your course. Extra days can always be booked upon request.
