Essential Peru - Island Homestay

My husband read something about bringing a gift for the family we'll be staying with on Amantani Island.  We're leaving for this trip in a week, and I'm still struggling to think of something appropriate to bring for them.  Any suggestions?


Hi Amanda,

You're right that the families you'll be staying with on Amantani do really appreciate a small gift, but it's not something you need to prepare for in advance. We find that practical items are the best gifts to take, and our tour leader always take the groups to a local supermarket and will suggest items you may like to buy - rice, vegetable oil and candles are common items to take as they're not readily available on the island and getting to the mainland to purchase them involves a fairly long journey in their non-motorised boats.

I hope you enjoy the trip - Peru's a wonderful country and I'm sure you'll really enjoy your holiday!
