Our Blog

Sneak a peek at what goes on behind the scenes and what moves us. In Katy’s case, it’s mostly discovering new places to enjoy Peru’s gastronomy. For Steve, it’s a handy place to keep track of our ever-growing swag of awards. Sometimes our guests share their experiences. Sometimes it’s updates on our trips, our personal travels, and our growing families. It’s random and personal - like us!

Volunteering - Who Benefits?

Cusco, high in the Peruvian Andes, has long been a tourist hub as the gateway to Machu Picchu. Over the last twenty years or so, the whole area has boomed as a tourist destination, thanks to breathtaking mountain scenery, Inca heritage, and perhaps most of all, the chance to observe a way of life that seems to come from another time.
