Nicaragua: Learn, Serve, Immerse
Join Global Family Travels in an incredible journey to delve into the culture and society of contemporary Nicaragua. We will work with a small community outside of Leon to support their many endeavors, such as building safe, fuel-efficient stoves and latrines, supporting the local school, or organic gardening to increase food production.
A highlight of this tour is sure to be the three night homestay with a host family, living as they do, helping to prepare meals and participating in the daily routine of the house. Together you will learn how to cook a proper Nicaraguan meal and interact directly with the members of the family, learning names, games and sharing traditions from your world and theirs. Become a part of a family and create a bond that will continue to grow with each new exchange.
Transformative Travel Connections: Nicaragua Family Trip
This immersive 10-day trip to Nicaragua is part of our year-long Transformative Travel Connections (TTC) program, which includes pre and post-travel workshops connecting with Nicaraguan youth through visual storytelling, learning about the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, community development challenges and potential solutions in Nicaragua, and its history and culture. Participants will enjoy outdoor adventures exploring Nicaragua’s volcanoes, beaches and lagoons, and visits to handicraft workshops and other cultural and historical sites!
In June of 2015, we packed up our cleats and headed to beautiful Nicaragua where we stayed with local families, built a soccer field and taught soccer classes in Chacraseca, a small community outside of Leon. Our team worked hard for 3 days to build the multi-purpose field, which will be used for both playing soccer and as a community gathering place. Read more about the trip on our blog, or see trip’s photo gallery. We are happy to help your team build a similar soccer exchange in this amazing country!
