Internship Opportunities in Cusco

Pre-pandemic, Peru welcomed more than 5 million visitors and the tourism industry accounted for roughly 3.9% of the country’s total GDP. Because Machu Picchu is so nearby, it has created numerous employment opportunities for those in the area, with many relying on tourism for their livelihood.
With the country recovering from the pandemic, the demand for tourism has never been higher. An internship in hospitality and tourism therefore is an extremely popular choice in the great city of Cusco.
In Cusco, you can expect to find one of the world’s most sacred and treasured cultural heritage: Machu Picchu. Options for fun activities at this UNESCO heritage site include but are not limited to hiking at the Inca Trail, learn the rich history of this majestic site, and hop on a train to the Sacred Valley!
Outside of Machu Picchu, you can find the time to visit the picturesque rainbow mountain where you can choose to trek or go on an ATV car.
