Sobre el programa

Hospitality & Tourism internship placements are with hotels, hostels, tourist agencies, tour operators, or restaurants. All placements are with small, locally-owned businesses. Work may vary depending on the time of year (high/low season) and current business projects and goals at your placement.

As part of the internship program, participants receive 1 hour of private Spanish lessons every day, Monday to Friday. The classes can be personalized to the level and work schedule, and focuses on vocabulary relevant to the internship placement. 

Our Native Spanish Program is taught by experienced, certified, native Spanish instructors. Maximo Nivel uses the Communicative Method of language teaching, which is focused primarily on immersive, spoken interaction as a means of learning. For this reason, please note that teachers speak only in Spanish 100% of the time during class.

All interns are required to submit weekly journals and a final deliverable.

Internships os less than 8 weeks require either a 10-20 page written paper or a 1-hour PowerPoint presentation. Internships of 8 weeks or longer require both a 10-20 page written paper and a 1-hour PowerPoint presentation.

Final Deliverables are expected to cover the following:

  • Overview of the company worked with and the intern's role
  • Organization review
  • Sector analysis in host or home country
  • Analysis of obstacles incurred
  • Outcomes/results
Interns are always supported by Maximo Nivel’s in-country coordinators, but they are not with them at the placement every day. Please be prepared for some independence and leadership.

Internship placements are located in the Cusco area. Walking or taking the bus is the most effective and cheapest way to get to and from your placement. Travel time varies widely, but interns should expect to spend 15-40 minutes traveling each way. Taxis are also widely available. For the first visit to the placement, interns are taken by a Maximo Nivel representative using the local transport and given additional information about how to get to and from your work place. Local bus rides are very affordable and a one way trip typically costs S/. 5 or less ($1.75).

2023 at Help Local Animal Rescue Centers

I wish I would've had more information about the project. There was almost no information about the transportation (duration, costs). The project was super far away and for a longer stay than 1 week it's a lot of money just for this. When I wanted to change to another animal project they only ...
