Deliberate Detour participants delve into the ancient and the modern during their month-long hub. On any given day, they may visit a humble church built atop the Inca’s sacred Temple of the Sun, make chocolate from cacao seeds harvested in the Peruvian Amazon, make music with a traditional pan flute… and so much more. On Thursday Field Trips, they travel farther afield, perhaps visiting the pre-Inca salt mines at Maras or the sprawling Urubamba market.
We combine immersive outings with quieter days at the hub space where participants play teambuilding games, relax in the reading nook, engage in a history talk with a local expert, and circle up to reflect on the day’s activities.
While participants learn, grow, and form connections, their parents are free to work in one of Cusco’s lovely cafes or co-working spaces. Or perhaps they embark on a guided architectural walk, organized by Deliberate Detour, or a pisco sour tasting, making connections and memories all their own.
