Peru has a history that stretches back for millenia, with Inca ruins still visible today. Instead of flattening this history, modern Peru has embraced it, resulting in daily culture that weaves together ancient rituals with modern showmanship. Step out to see some traditional holiday celebrations, for example, and you may get caught up in a brass band on the way!
While in Peru you’ll find activity and culture aplenty, whether you want to sample fine cuisine in the cities or feed macaws from a rainforest riverboat. Climb the peaks of the Andes, then cool off with a swim in the Pacific. Or, just get caught up in some of the citywide festivals, many of which last for days. No matter your preference, life in Peru will offer a great deal, and the income from a TEFL position will be plenty to satisfy your needs and your curiosity.
Demand for TEFL has risen in recent years, as Peru has experienced sustained economic growth since 1993. In addition to global businesses and exports of natural resources, TEFL in Peru has also been on the rise due to the increasing presence of conservation efforts keen to preserve the remaining expanses of rainforests. In total, the atmosphere has proven to be very open to new TEFL instructors, making Peru an excellent place to begin your TEFL career.
