Practice is crucial when learning a new language, and sharing day-to-day life with a local family is a great choice to practice and improve your Spanish speaking skills outside the classroom while experiencing the traditional lifestyle of a Peruvian middle class family.

Frequently asked questions

Why are our homestay prices are cheaper than the median market price?

 

In order to make our homestays more affordable for everyone, our school does not take any cut from what our students pay to their families. This is why payments are made directly to your host family, and cash is the only method of payment accepted (Homestays are not businesses, so unfortunately they can't accept credit cards). If you know you won't be able to pay in cash, a wire transfer may be available as an alternative way to pay your host family.

What will my host family provide?

 

  1. Regular conversation in Spanish.

  2. A private, well illuminated and ventilated room.

  3. A nutritious breakfast every day (for those students that choose a breakfast and dinner option, the host family will share dinner with 
    students each evening)

  4. A desk inside your bedroom or a space in a 
    shared area you can use to study and complete homework.

  5. Access to a shared bathroom (or private bathroom, as the case may be)

  6. A house key

Is laundry included with my homestay?

 

Unfortunately since weather in Lima is very humid, most families do not wash their clothes at home as it takes several days to dry off (also, apartments and houses in Lima are small, so not every family has enough space to hang their clothes). Instead, most families choose to use laundries where they can get their clothes clean in just a couple hours for cheap (normally a regular size load will cost you around $3-$7, including washing, drying, and folding your clothes for you). 
Your family will point out to you one or more laundries near your house where you can take your clothes to wash cheaply and quickly.

What time can I check-in/check-out?

 

On request and upon availability, we will try to make special arrangements for your
arrival and/or departure to/from our homestay. In such cases, please indicate 
your check in time on our registration form or by sending an email to
contact@peruwayna.com

Can I have guests?

 

Students will be able to invite guests only with the knowledge and permission of their host family and during visiting hours (daily from 10am to 9pm). 

Unfortunately, because of security concerns, 

families do not allow non-students to stay overnight.

Are there spaces for couples? 

 

Yes! However, please note that since we have a limited number of rooms that can host couples, first send us an email to check availability during your travel dates. Also, please note that couples staying together in the same room will get a 15% discount per person on top of the regular price per night.

safety requirements

After a 17 month pause on reservations for our Homestays experiences because of the pandemic, we are very excited to announce that we will gradually restart offering these services starting July 1st, 2021.

Currently, we are working with a limited number of host families, all of whom have been fully vaccinated. We expect to gradually increase this number as more families are able to obtain vaccines and  feel comfortable hosting guests in their homes.

As you will be sharing your daily life with other people under the same roof, both host families and guest students must be able to show proof of immunization against COVID-19 in order to participate in any of our accommodation programs.

If you cannot provide proof of vaccination, we suggest using Airbnb to find a place to stay during your trip to Lima.  Accommodation prices have substantially dropped because of lower demand, while options have substantially increased. For your convenience, we have filtered search results for accommodations located within walking distance to/from our Spanish School.​
