Learn Spanish in Cusco: Accommodation

Students can choose to stay in either local private households with local hosts or in shared apartments, living with Peruvians or other language students. Cusco, whilst the second city of Peru, is a small city and so daily commutes are not long. Students should expect travel times of 15 to 30 minutes each way.

Peruvian hosts /Private households

  • Open to 18 yrs + age group
  • Single room accommodation
  • Half-board (breakfast and evening meal)
  • Bed linen and towels are included (and changed once a week)

Accommodation with local Peruvian hosts with half-board (breakfast and evening meal). The hosts are usually middle to upper-middle class people on a Latin American scale and each host is inspected by the college accommodation officer.  We have quoted host accommodation in the CESA Course Finder.

Shared apartments

  • Open to 18 yrs + age group
  • Single room accommodation
  • Shared room on request
  • Self-catering
  • Bed linen and towels are included

Students can rent a room in an apartment, sharing with other language students or, in some cases with local Peruvian students.  You are welcome to specify your preference for sharing, but it will depend on room availability at the time your course takes places, so no guarantees on this matter can be offered.
The apartments generally have WIFI and cable TV.
Students can rent either a single or a shared room.  If you choose a shared room, but no room mate can be allocated by the college, you will still be charged the shared room rate, on the understanding that once a room mate is found, they will move in with you.


Arrive: Sunday PM

We recommend students fly to Cusco’s International airport (CUZ) and then take the transfer service provided by the Spanish School transfer to your accommodation (especially if you are a beginner or if this is your first time in Latin America).

Aeropuerto Alejandro Velasco Astete arport is located just 4 km south of Cusco. There are regular collectivo buses into the city, that takes around 20 minutes (longer if the traffic is bad), or take one of the official taxis’.
