Ideal homestay location
(Check all the apply)
There are many different and distinct areas in Lima. All host families live in safe, good neighborhood, but we want to take your preferences into account. We've included some names of districts you can search to gain more information and see pictures. Unlike in the US, commuting to university is normal and with Lima's traffic this could entail a commute from 10 minutes to over an hour (in public bus). Remember, depending on your class schedule you may go to campus as few as two days a week and as many as five days a week. We strongly recommend you do some research and explore Lima via Google Maps.
San Miguel, Jesús María, Pueblo Libre, Magdalena del Mar, Lince neighborhoods (closer to university; average 10-30 minute commute to classes).
Miraflores, Barranco, San Isidro neighborhoods (further from university; average 30-70 minute commute to classes)
If you checked "other" above please elaborate:
Please share a little bit about yourself including your personality, hobbies and interests.
The more information you provide the better we are able to match you with the best available family. We share this section with potential families so they can get to know you better! (Feel free to write in English...we will translate for you!).
Is there anything else that we should be aware of or take into consideration when matching you with a family?
Please note any health issues/concerns, dietary restrictions/preferences, allergies, etc. here in addition to any other pertinent information we should know about you or requests you would like us to try and accommodate.
