Our style of travel is all about seeing the real Nicaragua and you can get close to the locals with our At Home with the Nicos trip in San Ramon.

During your time in Nicaragua you’ll stay in accommodation that reflects the character of your surroundings. You’ll experience a wide variety of styles and standards, from a night in a nature reserve surrounded by wildlife, to a colonial hotel in the city.
Our local Nicaragua project
The project we have chosen to support in Nicaragua is run by international NGO, Renewable World who support villages situated along the Rio Escondido river. Communities are provided with solar energy systems that give them a clean, safe alternative to burning of harmful chemicals like in their homes providing significant benefits to the health of the families. Solar energy also means children can study in the evenings and small businesses like restaurants can operate, providing an income.
