Are you looking for something completely different for next summer? Would you rather be outside exploring, discovering… being amazed?
We’re spending 3 days hiking the rugged Salkantay Trek to mysterious Machu Picchu! As if that weren’t enough adventure, we’ll spend an afternoon exploring the ancient Sacsayhuaman citadel, a day hiking the Andean hills above Pisac, another day hiking to see Rainbow Mountain, and 2 days taking in the sights and beauty of Lake Titicaca.
And you’ll learn things too. Everyone will take two courses, with a choice between two options:
- Option 1
- Spanish class (SPA 1401, 1402, 2310, 2320, or 3302)
- Writing class (ENG 3378: Travel Writing)
- Option 2
- two Spanish classes (SPA 1401/1402 or 2310/2320)
Our program fee includes almost everything while in Peru; there are no hidden costs that will leave you stranded while others are travelling. We have group excursions planned for every weekend, with all meals, transportation, tickets, etc. included in the fee you pay upfront.
Instead of sitting at a table in Moody Library for the summer, you’ll get credit for Baylor courses while living in a city where the Incas and Conquistadors struggled for control of a vast empire stretching over 2,500 miles. We’ll live in Cusco, which sits atop the Andean mountain range at 11,000 ft – forget about 110 degrees in Texas; we’ll max out around 60-70 degrees!
