Many volunteers do travel to Cusco. Most of the planning and coordinating takes place once you are in Peru; as it is easier to coordinate flights, hostels, and tour guides with the other volunteers. This trip is not included in the HOP program, but HOP staff will assist you in planning the trip. Some volunteers extend their time in Peru by a week to be able to spend more time in Cusco. The trip will be about $500-$700 depending on a variety of factors such as flights, tour agencies, amount of time spent there, any hikes you may do, etc.
