Christmas Celebration in Mahuaypampa The Cusi Travel team visited the elementary school of Mahuaypampa, an Andean village where our Quechuas (porters) are from. We brought hot chocolate, Christmas bread, snacks, balloons, and presents for each student. Each class also did a short performance, and we had a clown come and do a show as well. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported us so that we could make this party a reality for the kids!
English Education with Cusi Projects Cusi Travel supports education in the Andean village of Mahuaypampa where our Quechuas (porters) are from by providing an English teacher in the elementary school and donating school supplies to the children.

Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. At Cusi Travel, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians.
