Nicaragua Soccer Exchange - Top Ten Highlights

In June of 2015, pack up your cleats and head out with Global Family Travels on an incredible tour of Nicaragua that combines a love of soccer with a cultural exchange like no other! Our service learning project in Nicaragua involves building soccer fields and working in the community of Chacraseca, just outside of the colonial city of Leon. Participants will also enjoy soccer drills and playing games with the locals, orchestrated by a professional soccer coach who will accompany us on the trip.

During our time in the community, travelers will enjoy a home-stay with host families, participating in their daily routines, assisting with cooking or taking care of animals and getting to your know their families and ways of life.
