Other Info:
Peru is a fascinating country to explore, the economy is very good and there are many opportunities for growth here. Lima is a very large city that feels very small. We are based in Miraflores, which is on the coast so always has access to the beach, incredible views and fresh air. Peruvians are generally very friendly and hospitable, and the food is a huge attraction for visitors.
