About Arequipa, Peru


Lying in an agricultural valley at the foot of two Andean mountain chains and a dormant volcano soaring to 19,000 feet, Arequipa offers striking natural beauty and a variety of weekend climbing activities. Surfing is an option for intrepid TEFL trainees as well, with the Pacific Ocean just two hours away. With a population of almost one million, the city is the second largest in Peru and the capital of its region, but its local culture gives it the feel of a much smaller community.

White Spanish colonial buildings—built of a shimmering white volcanic rock—give the city its nickname: "el Ciudad Blanco" (the white city). The city center was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beautiful architecture and historic integrity. Soak up the local Andean culture, food, history, and natural beauty—all while training to teach English as a foreign language.
