Host families are experienced in the realm of hosting international travellers for a least 10 years.
The accommodation and meals provided at the host family will be basic. You will be getting three meals per day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner), the very same food your host family themselves will be having, traditional but very nutritious. However if you are unable to adjust to food or need more nutrition/protein/special diet you can arrange your own meals from produce at the local market.
