Airfare is not included.

Sample Itinerary

A detailed schedule will be sent one to two weeks prior to departure. Unbound will make every effort to offer the opportunity to attend Mass on Saturday night or Sunday.

Day 1
Arrive in Lima. Local Unbound staff will welcome you at the airport and transport you to the hotel where the group is staying.
Day 2-3
Travel up into the foothills that surround the city, and go into the neighborhoods where Unbound families live. Learn about the livelihood initiatives of the families served by Unbound, such as hydroponic and urban gardening. Meet and spend time with your sponsored friends from Lima.
Day 4
Visit communities on the outskirts of Lima where Unbound works. Families will invite you into their homes. Meet families heroically facing the daily struggles of poverty and learn about their hopes, dreams and struggles. You may even see amazing views of the ocean and the city, if the clouds clear.
Day 5-6
Join one of the Unbound leader meetings, and later, watch a cultural performance. Visit some points of interest, such as the Bohemian district of Barranco, tour the main plaza with its colonial era cathedral, or perhaps make a stop at the shore to dip your toes into the Pacific Ocean.
Day 7
Meet mothers and sponsored members. Attend a handicrafts fair prepared by the families to show you how they earn an income.
Day 8
Depart from Lima and return home, or continue your own journey in Peru.
