Nilo Lurin

Updated: October, 2022. *This is not a hostel, but a personal project aimed to become an educational & cultural spot in the neighborhood. Please, before introducing yourself, which is very nice, ask me if the days you apply are available to welcome you :) Basic benefits - Wide garden, bedroom, living room, little kitchen. Any area is shared. - Breakfast will be provided by the host the work days. However, the lunch and dinner can be cooked in the kitchen by the guest/volunteer/friend. I am flexible to talk about these and other clauses. Additional benefits: - Welcome cocktail or meal. - Detailed advice on transport or interesting spots in the area or the country (I've traveled in 23/24 departments of Peru, in most of the cases by bicycle) - 2 bikes available - Travel tips, guide book loans, magazines and national tourism sketches. - Spanish lessons (I work as a Spanish teacher sometimes) and immersion in Peruvian culture (I am about to get my 2nd degree in Cultural Anthropology) - Tourist guidance, going to camp or traveling (depending on the common motivations). In Lurín you can visit: - Temple of Pachacámac (one of the most important oracle sanctuaries of Abya Yala. Pachacámac is the ancestral num god with demiurgic powers, whose name etymologically means "Soul of the Earth, the one that animates the world"). - San Pedro Beach, Arica beach, El Silencio beach, among others. - Islands of Cavillaca (2 km from the coast, its name is based on a beautiful myth. It has marine wildlife). - Lomas de Lúcumo (Flora and wildlife of a desert ecosystem moistened by sea breezes, with greater splendor between May and November). - Diverse restaurants (fresh seafood and fruits from local fields). - Ichimay wari (neighborhood of southern craftsmen). - Nursery gardens. - Inochy Lútico Center (Collection of stones from different regions) - Cerro Centinela (It has an Inca cemetery on the top, demanding hard trekking). - Near Chilca (UFO sighting and contact area, archaeological ruins, beaches, energy pools with medicinal muds, local gastronomy). - Near the cemetery of Nueva Esperanza (the second largest necropolis in the world). Don't hestite to ask me anything if you have further queries :)

I spend most of my time in the germinal project of Bauwasi, where I live alone. However, I frequently receive travelers of different platforms. I have already hosted over 80 travelers from different continents, who I keep in touch after long years of friendships with. What else? Just ask me, I am open to share any story of my life. I recommend you to check out my CS profile, where I introduce myself in a more detailed way and have most of my guests' references. I am looking forward to meeting you too!! Warm hugs :)

I had a really great time staying at Nilo’s little farm/future cultural vecinal center ! Nilo is a great host, always here if you need anything, super interesting conversations we had, great knowledge of Peru’s history and culture. He’s also a great guide when it comes to know the best place to visit and best food to try. I strongly recommend this expérience :)

Excelente voluntariado en Lurin.
Nilo sabe mucho sobre cultura en general. Y puede dar muchos consejos a la hora de seguir viajando por Perú. Lo recomiendo totalmente.
Gracias Nilo!

I had a great experience!
After I settled in, I spent one week with Nilo. He is a super warm, and welcoming person, who likes to cook and communicate.
My working times were quite flexible, which was very nice. The tasks were challenging, but very doable and fun.
Nilo has a lot to teach you and also has an open hear to learn about different cultures and countries.
I would definitely recommend this experience! I had an unforgettable week, and made a good friend. :)
