Most likely, you will be grocery shopping and cooking for yourself and, at times, enjoying meals prepared by local cooks. Meals prepared by local cooks reflect the various cultural dishes from that region, with a few North American style meals here or there. While specific recipes and flavor profiles can vary greatly throughout Latin America, staples include meats and fish/seafood, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and starches including rice, potatoes, corn and grains.
Housing may vary from site to site, but all will include safe housing with toilets, running water, electricity and showers. Many of our sites feature dorm-style housing with bunk beds, while others may feature small houses, apartments or guest houses. It is possible that you could stay with a missionary in their home, rent an apartment, or stay at one of Inca Link’s guest houses. Housing will be solidified and discussed with you prior to your departure date.
