This week we’d like to take a moment to thanks some of our biggest supporters.
Peru expat travel is a challenge! We help you with transportation and our friends will help you navigate life and the language.
New Peruvian – http://www.newperuvian.com/ A longtime member of the expat community. An invaluable source of information for those wishing to visit or live in Peru. Need help with Peru expat travel? New Peruvian is an independent travel guide to Peru aimed primarily at independent travelers. Its main reason for existing is to help you get the most out of your trip to Peru, be it for five days or five months. You’ll find detailed city guides, practical travel tips, and information about Peruvian food, culture and more. It’s also here to inspire. The feature articles and photo stories will hopefully give you that final push to buy a plane ticket and fly out to explore what is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating countries in South America.
Tourism or the Expat Experience? We’ve got you covered!
Streets of Lima – https://streetsoflima.com/ Is a popular source of information for over 11 years. On this page you will find a plethora of information regarding what to see and do in the greatest city in the world: Lima, Peru! Most tour books completely overlook how wonderful a city Lima is. Sure, sure, like any metropolis in a far off land, there are things that seem strange until you know the local lingo, but for some reason the fears about Lima have been totally overblown. The one shining jewel that Lima has which makes it sparkle more brightly than any other South American capital is its warm and accommodating people. Yes, the people in Lima are among the friendliest, hardest-working, and simply the best I have ever met anywhere I have ever been (and I’ve been a lot of places).
Need help with the language and culture?
Viva Idiomas – http://www.vivaidiomas.com/ VIVA is an excellent Spanish school and has amazing teachers. They have been serving the international expat community for many years and have a stellar reputation. They offer very affordable prices and teach many languages. The best part about Viva is that they also teach you about the culture and history of Peru. If you decide to signup for classes, be sure to mention GringoTaxis!
