You will take part in fashion and craft design workshops and engage in tasks such as making drafts, knitting, sewing, painting and more!
Local accommodationAbout the Accommodation You will be staying in our accommodation center in Banos del Inca, Rural Cajamarca countryside. The house is made with traditional materials such as adobe and stone, it also has large gardens and its own chicken coop off to the side. WiFi will be available in your rooms, but keep in mind that it may not be stable at times. We recommend also using 3G data if staying connected is important to you. All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. Although rooms will be cleaned daily by staff, you will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and organized. Food Arrangements The food will be typically Peruvian meaning lots of corn, beans, rice, chili peppers, potatoes, wheat, and other grain, all very vegetarian friendly. Keep in mind that some local dishes may be spicy!
About the project locationYou will be staying in the Los Baños del Inca district found in the east of Cajamarca. It is known for being centered on a naturally occurring thermal spring! Located only a short distance away from Cajamarca city (Capital and largest city of Peru's Cajamarca Region, enriched in culture and history), this quiet location provides a relaxing atmosphere after a day out. The accommodation has beautiful view of the Andes Mountain Range and is close to the Amazon Rainforest, it will bring you back to South American nature!
