Local Development

We support local
employment nonprofit economy


Our company is from Peru, just like our founder and director Bernard Schleien. In 1998, he started Peru for Less in Lima, Peru and our brand has since expanded and now includes Incas Expert Travel. About 65% of our in-office staff was born here and the rest of us come from the US, Canada, and beyond. Living in Peru is a common thread that runs through our entire team and we believe safeguarding this special country we call home is an absolute must.


Our team is a proud partner of the Concrete Jungle Foundation, a nonprofit organization that instills a strong work ethic and confidence in youth through the art of skateboarding.

“A properly done social responsibility effort is unique in itself,” says Bernard, our founder. “Anyone who has closely interacted with successful social entrepreneurs knows that they are a different breed of die-hard optimists. It is usually extraordinary people who turn such social efforts into success and I have plenty of confidence in the founders.”


Working directly with locally owned companies ensures that the money spent our travelers stays within the community and creates jobs for the people who live there. These economic benefits spill over into social benefits that instills locals with pride in their cultural roots. In the remote Andean and jungle regions of Peru, this helps keep traditional celebrations, cuisine and handicrafts as a part of everyday life.

Concrete Jungle Foundation

Our team is proud to collaborate with the Concrete Jungle Foundation (CJF) on their latest social youth project in Trujillo, Peru.

CJF is a nonprofit organization with a simple mission: to build skatepark facilities for the youth in underserved communities. But don’t be fooled, skateboarding is so much more than a fun pastime. By providing children with free access to skateparks, the activity of skateboarding is a powerful vehicle to improving self-esteem; promoting a healthy, active lifestyle; and building positive community relationships.
