Experience The Lum Museum and Lima with Good Life Expeditions

Did you know that when you volunteer abroad on a MEDLIFE Service Learning Trip in Peru you can go on a day trip with Good Life Expeditions to see what The Lum Museum and Historical Lima have to offer? For only $91 USD a person, you will get to experience Peru outside of where you have been staying and learn about the countries’ rich history and culture.

historical limaTrip Itinerary:

The day will start by visiting the Museum of Memory, Tolerance, and Social Inclusion, which gives insight on the effects of terrorism during the 1980s. We’ll then head to the historic city center and introduce you to the complex times of Spanish conquest. With the city’s many palaces, mansions, churches, and plazas, you can’t help but marvel at the seamless blend of the beauty of the past and the modern day.

During this journey, you will also get a taste of Peruvian gastronomy and learn how it became globally renowned.

This full day tour will give you a broad overview of the city by combining history, culture, and food.

For a comfortable and safe trip, we recommend you bring: comfortable clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, camera, water bottle, and a face mask.

About Good Life Expeditions:

MEDLIFE partners with Good Life Expeditions for all of our SLT volunteer excursions due to their commitment to giving back to the communities that these trips take place in. When you travel with Good Life Expeditions, over $75 of every $100 spent stays in developing countries. Rather than this revenue staying in typical tourist destinations, it makes its way to remote communities that need support.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
