Spend Time in Nicaragua Helping Kids and Exploring Beaches
It's not to late to plan a volunteer vacation before the end of the year. The non-profit volunteer travel company Crooked Trails has launched a trip to Nicaragua next month where travelers will help locals and experience the beauty of the island of Ometempe in Lake de Nicaragua.
During their stay, volunteers will work at Si a la Vida, a nonprofit organization that works to rehabilitate street boys, rescuing them from the streets of Nicaragua and providing a new home on Ometepe. They will also help bring needed government documents to residents in remote areas who are without birth certificates or documentation. Registering those without proper ID can open open up much needed opportunities.
The 12-day trip will leave November 5th, and will include a guide, transportation, lodging at local hotels, meals and other activities like a tour of a coffee plantation, spending time exploring beaches, and a hike up the Madras Volcano. The cost of the trip is $1350.
