The Maximo Nivel TEFL training center in Cusco, Peru is located on the main commercial street of Avenida El Sol. It sits directly across from Q’oricancha–the Temple of the Sun and the most sacred site in the Inca Empire. The training center is just 3 blocks from Cusco’s Plaza de Armas, right in the historical center and close to shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. The city of Cusco is most famous for its interesting mix of Inca ruins and colonial architecture –so much so the entire city has been designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site by the United Nations.
The training center includes 4 floors with 22 classrooms, WiFi, computer lab, and a snack bar. The institute’s spacious common areas are great for meeting up with friends and making new ones. There are always lots of free time activities and cultural events to take part in. The training center is open 7 days/week, including holidays.
