    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone had gone on their elective to Peru through Work the World? It looks really good, but there's only one review/testimonial so far! I've seen that some other companies organise electives Peru too, but I've heard good things about Work the World so I just wanted some opinions really.

    Thanks all!

    I spent my elective in Peru with this organisation: www.medicalelectives.cc

    Another student and I had a great time on a varied elective (50% in the mountains, 50% in the rainforest) with an organisation that provided an extremely personal service. The company owner (Pablo) basically just wanted to show us everything he could in Peru. Unless things have changed, all profits are reinvested in Mundo Verde's main "business" which is charity and rainforest confirmation.

    It's basically one prize for all accommodation, Spanish lessons, tours, visits, clinical placements, etc. I don't know how that compares to Work the World.

    Happy to answer any questions about MV if you have them.
