Host Families

Host families are the only option of housing in Peru. They are selected by IFSA-Butler’s housing coordinator according to student’s needs and tastes. We try to match their requests as closely as possible.

Families live in the neighborhoods of Miraflores and San Isidro, which are upper middle class safe areas. The program has a variety of families, with different religious beliefs and different family structures. Through host families, students experience Peruvian cultural values as well as customs and traditions.
